...how much more you want another 200 to watch a soccer game...
You don't need to pay Rogers any more. You do, however, need to pay the streaming service that outbid all others in order to watch it: See earlier posts in this thread.
It’’s a shame that big corporations like Rogers and Bell they lost all the rights to show soccer of any competition. DAZN company beats the BIG TWO (ROGERS AND BELL). Unbelievable and shameful.
To be perfectly honest, DAZN has a better product. They have basically have every match available for up to a week compared to cable providers that will only broadcast maybe 1-2 games on their channels with no replay-ability unless you PVR it.
No compensation from Rogers - just us all being asked again and again to take less for same the price. A unique thing that the ENTIRE planet HAS (and had forever) - best Soccer played by best in the world on cable!!!!
This week, DAZN blamed the Roku streamer for the fact they were down one day - missed both the He Série A and the Carabao game. By definition, a streaming service from across the ocean can never have the reliability level of cable . Presuming one has 20 bucks to spare a month after already paying for cable, the optics aren't great - just two monopolies here in Canada deciding Canadians won’t have the worlds most important soccer on cable - no Canadian soccer commentators to boot. Unacceptable for all And the vast majority expressed this view. No mitigating factors whatsoever. Only a clear message - you’re not worth it and “no soup for you”
Soccer coverage as of June 19, 2020
Seeing Bundesliga on Sportsnet is nice - first ever without an extra streamed service subscription - will it last?
Even without spectators - to get to see our young Canadian player doing well for Bayern Munchen is inspiring!
It seems that our collective rage and protests about having to pay DAZN and/ or BEIN , etc..on top of cable, plus having to put up with the inherent weakness of a streamed service from overseas versus Canadian Cable - with our own excellent commentators - are both muted!! For me - it was a must that I see the highest level of play - Barclays Premier and UEFA!! So - I pay DAZN! Even now - when I got nothing for 3 months paying DAZN , while now...well..you know what's on now!? Suffer baby, suffer!!
