BallinEurope enjoyed the Euroleague TV guys last season – a lot. Otherwise we would not have been able to come up with a post like this.
This year, again, we will be following the EL.TV crew and this starts today. Somehow we will try to get in contact with the commentators this season and let you know more about them.
Don’t get me wrong: We really know how hard it is to entertain people for two hours and we are really impressed by these guys. We are also really glad that the Euroleague offers something like this, what with the bad TV coverage of basketball in many countries of Europe. This was probably one of the best ideas the Euroleague has come up with so far.
If you are lucky to be in one of the following countries (Greece, Russia, Spain, Italy), you can watch the games tonight on TV – if not – we highly recommend to get the EL.TV package to watch the games every Wednesday and Thursday.
Now we know that the Euroleague has the following prize tags for the games:
€5.90 for a single game
€69 for a team pass
89 €79 for a season pass
For me this is like buying an Apple product: You know, it’s not the cheapest, but you really, REALLY want it. I just hope for the Euroleague TV guys, that enough people think like I do …
I do want to add that it really seems pricey – it really does – so for us as hardcore Euroleague fans it only makes sense to spend €90 and then watch as much as we can.
You can also compare it to a pair of Nike sneakers if that helps you – Look on the right of this page – a pair of Jordans are €160, and I bet you get more from the EL.TV package within a year.
