    If the stream is better than the stream last season, I may buy a subscription. I love that they offer these type of deals. Just put out a good stream–some of the matches last season caused many people problems.

    NASL: $5/month for an awful streaming package
    MLS: $8/month for every non-national broadcast

    Decisions.

      My only saving grace with MLSLive this year is that the Crew only have One (1) nationally televised game. That means that I actually get to watch everything online this year! So sick of blackouts….

      btw Screw You NBC & ESPN for not deeming the Crew worthy!!! (but secretly I’m happy, shhh, don’t tell them.)

    Not so sure about the price point here. Glad to see nasl invest more in streaming games. But most fans will chose MLS first and then to add a monthly bill from nasl amounting to another $50? Not so sure. I kind of think a $20 annual price point would have been better for nasl right now. I know two people in my family who’d probably buy at that price.

      I agree. I think NASL may also be underestimating how much this will hurt their brand. I generally followed NASL, and with a club being built about three hours away, I was planning to follow their games online. Not sure I want to fork over $40 beyond my MLS subscription, and my interest in Indy Eleven has dropped a bit, because having them three hours away means I won’t be able to follow that many games.

        A fan of an NASL team will support their team and more likely go with the NASL subscription over the MLS subscription. Its about your club not the league.

      I remember it was like 20 bucks or something to stream MLS back in 2008 or so. They shouldn’t charge anything over 10 dollars, or less even, if they really want ppl to pay to stream NASL or else it’ll be a very niche demographic consisting of mostly supporters who go for this IMO.

    Will NASL games, unlike MLS game, be available outside the US, Canada, and Mexico?

    There is a plenty of US soccer on TV. All of the Union games are either on the National game or the local CSN or TSN so I like watching my home team for sure.
    I was very interested in watching the expansion Indy and Ottawa fracnises as well as other games like last season but probably will not bother to through the process of the small fee.
    I fear that there will be many like myself that would tune into an NASL matchup that they may want to see but not worth the effort to pay the fee.
    At the very least all NASL teams should have all of their games on live TV. The home team taking control of the broadcast of each game and simulcast that broadcast on the visiting teams Network to save cost.
    Each team should bring a team analyst with them on the road to join the local Broadcast team so insight can be given form both teams

    I think ESPN3 is available to everyone, WatchESPN is only available to depending TV cable plan/provider.

    People will complain about the high price of the NASL subscription, but a lot more than you think will buy it…and complain the whole season about the cost.

    I will buy the NASL stream, but it better work and the color commentary/play by play better improve.
