did anyone notice [pointed out on waccoe] that, even for members, live coverage of our preseason games is going to be PPV, £5 a throw? bit of a swizz if you ask me, one of the reasons for subscribing, if you ask me, was that they'd occasionally have a few very minor [stiffs and friendlies] live games on there... http://www.leedsunited.com/news/2010072 ... 85_2098412

I noticed that, and I'm a subscriber already - it does seem more than a bit shit to have to pay a top up for these games. Can't think of a single other example where this applies (on this scale). I mean, you get PPV stuff on sky, having had to subscribe for varying levels of service, but we're talking about an extra top up on the same channel here. Its like saying "pay £16 a month extra for sky sports and you'll get the right to pay £5 further to watch a game".
And for 1 camera coverage too in norway!!
I'd not renew LUTV in protest if it weren't my only way of listing to away games, and generally being worth it for highlight packages.

That'd have worked in my view, except difficult to sort out when you can subscribe for 1 month for £5, as both gams are in a week, they'd have had to be £2 each as PPV to make you better off over subscribing.
