Penn Sports Network officially launches against Saint Joe’s this weekend. Most of the time I’m stuck watching Penn basketball games in a tiny little window streaming from CN8. But now I’ll get to pay for the privilege of a hopefully higher quality stream.
The good news is that they are offering their first two events (the aforementioned basketball game and a wrestling match) for free, so you can try it out. Never being one to scrimp $10, I dropped the cash to subscribe for the rest of the season (special introductory rate). I figure if it sucks, I’m only out $10. But hopefully it will be at least as good as the streaming NFL I watched in Denmark.
Now the bad news:
- $10 is the regular monthly rate starting next season.
- They don’t currently mention anything about football coverage (which I hope they would do next season).
- They say that the Mac is supported, but I haven’t gotten it to work without crashing Safari. Oh well, I still have a PC at home and can always bring my work laptop home
So, I will watch the game this weekend and let you all know how it went!
