Rogoway: Blazers Online Stream "Erratic"

As I first tweeted here and here, covered nationally here, the first Blazers.com online stream was not a success. Mike Rogoway of The Oregonian does a nice job running down the service and its issues and even gets information regarding how many people paid for the stream. Kellex from Blaze Of Love has another (generally positive) review, where he explains how easy it is to pirate video clips from the service in real time. Well then. The online stream idea is great in theory and the team is right for proactively seeking feedback. But initial feedback says the stream resembled Larry David's from last week's Curb Your Enthusiasm. As a matter of principle, the Blazers should do the right thing and refund all users for last night's game. It's just one game -- they apparently earned less than $2,000 on the stream -- and did not live up to a reasonable standard as a content provider. Here's hoping future streams go off without a hitch. -- Ben (benjamin.golliver@gmail.com)
