I just signed up for the March Madness on Demand to see what it's like. I am 96,145th on the list of "admission". Every 90 sec they let about 150 people in. I guess I might catch some of the Elite 8 if I sit here like an imbecile.

Much ado about nothing

:rolleyes:

They've been saying for weeks to sign up early because there would be a limit.

I should have paid heed to those warnings. However, I don't really care. Our network sucks so badly, once I get in, I guarantee you the video will be constantly buffering.

Aaaaahh, now I get it. It's no big deal anyway. I have work to do....obviously.

I saw on another board that some people were getting in thru a direct link....Worth a try.

Nice 30 second lag, too.

Bob Dole assumed the thing would allow you to watch the game of your choice in its entirety rather than the round-robin network broadcast. Is that how it's going to work when there's more than one game? Doesn't everyone have a tv in their office anyway?

I just got in line again, apparently they kicked me off while I went to lunch at the bar, but i'm already in watching games again..it was like a 2 minute wait.

Yeah right, and give people more choices on where to watch a game? That is not the NFL way, unless you have about 5 billion to buy the rights.
