Should the NHL Give Up On Television?
January 25, 2010 2 Comments
At 1:30 of this clip of Newsradio (how I solve all my life’s problems), Catherine Duke (Khandi Alexander) interviews a so-called “business visionary” named Tom Baxter whom, in 1996, claims that “computers are what’s gonna be big.” This is derided as most people already knew that.
Author Kevin Maney seems to fancy himself a “business visionary”. Here’s his website for some background. Maney told ABC News on Yahoo! that the NHL should drop all of it’s television contracts and go exclusively to streaming games on the web, getting them on the forefront of the web revolution.
There will be two articles on this site upcoming: 1. a piece on what today’s NBC ratings are, and 2. a review of NHL’s Game Center LIVE. Just pointing out that this sort of thing will be prevalent this week. I want to hear your take on the interview. Let me know.
