With all of the CBC content on iTunes, I figured for sure that we would have gotten the Canadian feed for the All-Star Game. Boy am I ever glad that I clicked on the previews just to make sure! This is the Versus feed... Not at all the same quality or content. Part of the fun of the ASG is to get the in-game commentary from the players (example: Luongo chatting with the guys in the booth while making saves) and other features that you wouldn't see in a normal hockey game. As it stands, I certainly won't be paying good money to see an elaborate game of shinny, broadcast by people who barely know how to handle a "real" game. It's too bad, 'cause I would have really liked to have bought CBC (or, heck, even RDS') broadcast.
Why no CBC???
Why, I am not sure, but wouldn't it be appropriate to have the Canadian feed on the Canadian itunes store. I really cannot stand the versus feed and am therefor not purchasing something that i was looking forward to purchasing.
ARE YOU SERIOUS !
Are you kidding me ? Or am i seeing things ? Is the whole all star game seriously only like $ 1.99 OMG !
