When will Setanta release their prices for the games? Can you buy the whole tournament, or would it be cheaper to buy the year subscription?


(I am talking about broadband)

You should just make the jump to Directv, for about the same price as I was paying for cable I get setanta, hbo, showtime and cinemax. Setanta is the real deal too, I DVR so many rugby matches that I have to delete some before I watch them, because I run out of space on my DVR. But that's just me.

Can multiple people use the same ID and password for Setanta Broadband?

Lets say me and 3 other kids in the same dorm put in money to watch it. Can we all watch it on 3 different computers?

Setanta are a bunch of greedy cocksuckers. I f***ing hate them. They have the rights to every single game, and not a bloody All Black game will be played live. Not a single Quarter. Not a single semi. Not the final. 17 lives games of the whole tournament and the rest is delayed. **** poor. **** poor. Last world cup I saw every game live. f*** you Setanta you money grubing son of a *****.

Yes, we get GAA on Setanta here in the US. We also get Aussie Rules.

Are they the money grubbers, or are the original broadcasters the money grubbers? Setanta seem like a company that likes to give their consumers what they want...I've had several phone conversations with them. Broadcasting rights are expensive, and only get more expensive for big events like the RWC. I'm quite thankful to them, as last RWC, here in the US, we only got a few matches on a 3 day delay on FOX Sports World (the FSC).

Oh they are money grubbers. If you had the exclusive rights to every single WC game would you not play the top matches ie All Blacks games, playoffs ect? Of course you would, the only reason not to is to force people into paying for the premium/pay per view to watch the games people really want to see. Sure it makes a lot of sense from a pure corporate making money scheme, but it screws over the consumer. Setanta as a station to a rugby viewer makes no sense after the world cup anyway. Why pay $180 a year when I can go to Media Zone and pay $100 for a better service and more live games. At first I thought Setanta was great but you know what I don't, not at the price they're selling at. As I said, last world cup in Canada we had every single game broadcasted live. I'm beyond disappointed right now.

15 bucks a month is a good deal for me, i'd much rather watch them live on my TV rather than live on the computer, of course you can do that cable hook up **** but i dont want the hassle.

It's basically no hassle at all, especially if you have a laptop. Plus you get so many more games live for $80 cheaper.
