YouTube TV gets to be the official presenting sponsors for the NBA finals, while so being able to present on YouTube TV NBA G league games and the Women’s NBA league games. YouTube TV will also have their logos on the courts and website.
This is a pretty interesting move done by YouTube TV, it essentially would be creating a pathway of all sporting events streamed online. Slowly people are getting rid of cable since a lot of the content is available online for platforms such as YouTube, Netflix, Hulu Plus and other streaming services. Cables companies are probably scrambling right now and thinking how they can move with technology and bring everything online while being a relevant company.
If YouTube TV can profit from this, I think this can open up the doors for NFL, MLB, MLS and NHL to also stream the games online. It just would be more convenient for people to able a game on their phone, or on their smart TV. If the fee was reasonably cheap, This would be a service I would pay for since I can access any league game from one app, that is in HD quality. I would probably be willing to pay up to 60 bucks a year per league (only would by the NBA pass) to watch the games from anywhere I want.
Some of the questions I have is, how will they stop those who watch streams illegally? There are many people who watch from illegal streams which result in profit loses for the leagues. There are steams that support the pirates!
But the real question is will the pirates ever stop the illegally streaming? My answer is… Internet Pirates have ethical morales! Right? maybe not…
Let me know what you guys think!
