Dropped Comcast eons ago....... don't miss it either.

I am wondering though, since it's on their xfinity on demand platform does that mean people who do get it are paying extra for the platform (as in a premium service) plus paying for the show? If so are the Komets getting a cut of the action? If people are paying and the Komets aren't getting money out of it then why use a limited access venue, or for that matter why a limited access venue in the first place?

Why not use public access so everyone can watch it? The Komets have to be getting a cut of it.

A bunch of questions I know, most of which will go unanswered probably. While I'm asking, does anyone know Comcast's market share compared to Fios and the satellite services??

Comcast is one of the Komets' major sponsors.

If you don't have access to Comcast, guess you are just SOL. :(

The Xfinity "platform" is just a new name...COMCAST customers with on demand get it free...these Komets shows are free, and actually pretty good! Can't wait to see the rest of the shows when they come out. I'm sure the K's don't get any $$, probably just part of the sponsorship deal with COMCAST, and a way to give more to us fans while promoting the team.

Cable Company are all the same.. they either get you coming or get you going...

Blake, yeah, I was aware of that and imagined that was part of the tie in.

Thanks for the info Jared.

For sure JM. I still wonder just what Comcast's market share is. I personally only know one person out of hundreds that still have Comcast, but that group may not be a fair sampling.

On the Komets' away games, we go to the CHL Live website, pay $7.00, hook up the laptop to the tv and have the whole game to watch. And it is archived for free, once you pay for it, you can watch it again for free. Haven't ever watched a home game (much better in person), so don't know if you can get those or not. I would never go back to Comcast, sponsor or not, to watch anything.

My parents tried Comcast (aka: Xfinity) for a 6 moth trial offer and when done, they wanted to triple thier rates at which point they said no thanks...
