And if you think it's going to stay at $10 forever forget it.
JesseHaysFL
Thats what I do now.
StaatsOne
espn will be like 15/month
JesseHaysFL
Amazon prime, hulu and netflix. That covers all of my cable needs.
I stream everything else and use over the air for local sports
A7
I'm a slave to live sports, so until I can buy access to a league I can't make the jump.
stedman
StaatsOne, it was last year during the playoffs
A7
But even so, I pay $200 a month, and that's for everything via Charter.

espn 15/month? was it a promotion or something?
jackal|27629
i have cable ONLY to watch live sports!
A7
Is that really that bad...for literally everything?
StaatsOne
oh nm
thanks
JesseHaysFL
understandable, but NFL ticket and etc are becoming more and more viable everyday, granted the pricing is nuts but I think the market will sort that out. HBOgo with Game of thrones is an awesome example.
StaatsOne
he knows a thing about vapor ware
A7
JesseHaysFL I've found NFL Ticket to be highly unreliable.

On October 6, 2004, Stern announced on his show that he had signed a five year contract with Sirius, a satellite radio service. Sirius provided a budget of $500 million to pay Howard, his staff and general production costs.[45] His personal salary has not been revealed. Other media sources have claimed that Stern netted a $225 million one-time stoc
k bonus for meeting subscriber quotas, which he did meet in January 2006.[46]
Stern stated that he was growing increasingly unhappy doing his show on terrestrial radio. The combined stresses of heavy censorship and editing by management as well as lengthy commercial breaks weighed into his decision to start anew on Sirius. Stern admitted to feeling dead inside, creatively in December, 2005 while still on terrestrial radio.
[47]
The Sirius deal, which took effect on January 1, 2006, enabled Stern to broadcast his show without the content restrictions imposed by the FCC. Moreover, the deal also enabled Stern to program an additional Sirius channel.
On February 28, 2006, CBS Radio announced it had filed a lawsuit against Stern, his agent Don Buchwald, and Sirius Satellite Radio, saying Stern used CBSs airwaves to unfairly promote the satellite service and enrich himself.[48] The lawsuit also claims that Stern repeatedly and willfully breached his contract with CBS, misappropriated millions
of dollars worth of & airtime for his own benefit, and fraudulently concealed his performance-related interests in Sirius stock. The suit, filed in New York state court, sought compensatory and punitive damages. Not to be outdone, Stern earlier in the day (prior to CBSs announcement) held a press conference at which he mentioned that CBS added
to the media attention, booking him for appearances on Late Show with David Letterman and its news magazine show 60 Minutes. I made them millions of dollars. If I was hurting them, why did they keep me on the air for 14 months? Stern said. How can you have it both ways?[49]
Leslie Moonves, the President and Chief Executive Officer of CBS Corporation, appeared on one of Sterns final shows to compliment him on his move to Sirius and thank him for the record advertising revenue the network sold. Moonves told Stern that he bought Sirius stock. Stern said the network had the option to push the button on his program, tak
ing him off the air, if they did not agree with what he was presenting to the public.
On May 11, 2006, CBS said it was near settling the lawsuit with Stern. We have an agreement, but there are details that have to be worked out, said CBS lawyer Irvin Nathan.[50] Some details of the agreement were officially announced May 26.[51]
As a result of the CBS lawsuit settlement, Stern announced on June 7, 2006 that Sirius gained exclusive rights to his entire back catalog of radio shows from his days at CBS (about 23,000 hours). The shows cost Sirius approximately $2 million, which equates to approximately $87 per hour of tape. Sirius has the rights to the tapes until the end of S
terns current contract with Sirius, and then all ownership rights will return to Stern.[52]
stedman
wired had a nice article on star citizen a few months back
JesseHaysFL
A7 I pay about 20 a month, 99 a year for prime, and I luckily have stopped watching NFL (my team is on the other side of the country and 300$ is just not worth it to me) so I am in a special bracket where my needs are met, I think everyone will be where I am out in ten years time.
stedman
first i heard of it
the interviewed some folks who put in thousands of dollars
StaatsOne
what's the other one? elite?
so this is the one with FP shooter controls right?
A7
JesseHaysFL At that price it's great, but once you start adding...Apple Music, HBO, Showtime, Netflix, Prime, on and on, eventually it's going to total cable.
JesseHaysFL
total I am around 340 a year as opposed to my former 220 a month through comcast.

Adult life
Stern grew to be tall, standing 6 ft 5 in (1.96 m).[28][29] On June 4, 1978, Stern married college sweetheart Alison Berns at Temple Ohabei Shalom in Brookline, Massachusetts. They have three daughters: Emily Beth (b. 1983), Deborah Jennifer (b. 1986) and Ashley Jade (b. 1993).[30][31] A hallmark of Sterns humor was his claiming to be tempted by t
he strippers, porn stars and lesbians appearing on his show, but always insisted that he had to be faithful to his wife. In 1994, Stern ran for Governor of New York as a libertarian.[32] The campaign was generally seen as a political stunt and Stern dropped out before the election after refusing to disclose his finances, a requirement by the State
of New York. In October 1999, Stern announced that he and wife Alison decided to separate.[5] They amicably divorced in 2001, ending in a settlement.[5]
Stern began a period of single living on New York Citys Upper West Side, dating dozens of women including Angie Everhart[33] and Robin Givens.[34] Despite reportedly spending time with Carmen Electra five times, the two have denied there was anything more intimate than an outdoor shower in bathing suits.[35] Stern also owns a weekend house on Lo
ng Island.
Stern has been the target of stalkers and death threats. On January 15, 1998, Lance Carvin was sentenced to two and a half years in prison for stalking and threatening to kill Stern and his family.[36]
Current
Since early 2000, Stern has dated model Beth Ostrosky, who is 18 years his junior.[5] Ostrosky co-hosted Casino Cinema on Spike TV from 2004 to 2007.[37] She had also frequently appeared in the American edition of mens magazine FHM until it ceased publication in 2007.[38] The pair live together with their Bulldog named Bianca Romijn-Stamos-OConne
ll. On February 14, 2007, Stern announced that he and Ostrosky became engaged the day before.[5]
A7
Why the history of Howard Stern???
JesseHaysFL
Honestly A7 its really worked for me but again I concede that it really isint for everyone at this point. But we will get there and I believe gaming will help change the tide

JesseHaysFL Gaming will take down MLB that's for sure.
UOThief
Greenspeak....? What happened to 8-Bits? :D :(
JesseHaysFL
the numbers just skew to the internet in almost every thing....Walking Dead's most viewed episode was about 15m people, When you look at streaming numbers its just no contest.

kickstarter is the next great video game bubble
kenjisalk
YAY
Vanillaware games are amazing
and it's coming to Vita as well!
Paine
KS isn't big enough to qualify as a bubble. $6M for Shenmue might sound like a lot, but KS money is nothing compared to the actual gaming industry.
JesseHaysFL
I doubt it, staats. The reason is no one forces you to kickstart, the only backlash is by people who lack understanding of how it works.
wizardofvideogam
I am The Lord of the Rings
JesseHaysFL
I have backed failures and never batted an eye, its part of the process.
StaatsOne
I don't mean it's going to destroy the industry, it' sjust that a lot of people are putting their money into these games and 90% won't ship
A7
Vita....LOL
kenjisalk
Vanillaware titles look amazing on the Vita's OLED screen
SimonWest

JesseHaysFL
Again, its the people that don't understand, it's not a preorder.
jeffgreen
I don't know what happened to 8-Bits! You gotta ask DJ Wheat!
<--old guy
kenjisalk
Odin Sphere is a 2D action RPG that feels a lot like Valkyrie Profile and Castlevania
JesseHaysFL
But I hear you and I get it, it does create a lot of noise in the gaming world when one fails
