nah, he's been on his way out for a while, that was his last week.

Much more hilariously, it seems like ESPN asked Bomani to go on his show to completely trash him on the way out. Let no one be unsure why he's on his way to Fox

Youtube TV started at $35/month about two years ago, went to $50/month, and has now cranked to $65/month.

This happened to be with DirectTVNow. The price jumped like $20-25/month with no warning.

Sadly these companies have begun to figure out that they can squeeze people more. We are going to be at the point soon where if you have multiple streaming services you will be paying what you would pay for cable.

Playstation Vue had all of the sports league channels (although I think NFL Net was an add on package) but had MLB, NBA, NHL in the core and even with the NFL added on the price was less than what YoutubeTV is going to be asking for next month and they still don't have NFL Net. I'm sorry, adding the Viacom channels like MTV, Comedy Central, CMT, Nick, Nick@Nite and VH1 is in no way worth a price hike. Everybody Loves Raymond, The Office and Ridiculousness on almost 24/7 should be net negative and offer a rebate at this point.

I think Sling was the only one that had NFL Network? I dunno I had Hulu with Live TV before canceling it when sports died. It was about the same as what YouTube is now but you also get regular Hulu so seems like a way better value.

ESPN posted:

ESPN will air the Eagles concert “Live From The Forum MMXVIII” this holiday weekend. The Eagles spent the majority of 2018 on an extensive North American tour with Vince Gill and Deacon Frey joining Don Henley, Joe Walsh, and Timothy B. Schmit. Earning rave reviews from fans and critics alike, the quintet arrived at the Forum in Los Angeles for three sold-out concerts on September 12, 14, and 15. Highlights from all three shows have now been compiled for the new 26-song live album and concert film that will premiere on ESPN this Sunday, July 5th, at 8 PM EDT / 5 PM PDT, introduced by longtime Eagles fan ESPN’s Chris Berman.

“Sports and music have long been at the top of the list for being able to bring people of all types together. The Eagles have been doing just that for almost half a century,” said ESPN’s Chris Berman. “We at ESPN are thrilled beyond belief to share this premiere with everyone! What a wonderful way to cap off the holiday weekend!”

“Music and sports fans have been shut out from live events for more than three months. The premiere of LIVE FROM THE FORUM MMXVIII, this July 4th weekend on ESPN, is the Eagles’ gift to their fans,” said Eagles’ longtime manager, Irving Azoff. “We are honored to be part of ESPN’s Sunday night programming, the home of such acclaimed shows as ’30 for 30′ and ‘The Last Dance.’”

Said Burke Magnus, Executive Vice President, Programming Acquisitions and Scheduling, “This was a unique opportunity to partner with one of the greatest bands of all time to bring audiences some new and exciting entertainment. For many music and sports are inextricably linked, so we are thrilled to present this momentous event from one of the cathedrals of sports – – The Forum.”

There is so much to unpack here.
