Not everyone lives somewhere that getting DirectTV or any other dish is an option. My apartment complex does not allow satellite dishes. Frankly after this power play, I don't believe I would get Universal Sports if I could.
Lovely, both Universal Sports, and their parent company NBC, seem to not care there are people without cable, etc., who are very willing to pay for the streams.
Hopefully the youtube user who put up the Russian videos so quickly last season will be doing the same this season.
And I was looking forward to working from home again this fall, and getting to watch the Grand Prix live.
