NC State takes on Central Connecticut tonight. The only problem is, it’s only streaming in one place, and it’s on an app nobody has.

The ever-popular FloSports (sarcasm) has full rights to the first round of the Hall of Fame Showcase that NC State is participating in. Tonight the Pack will take on Central Connecticut and if you want to watch, you’ll have only one option. Download the app, pay $30 and stream the game. (Make sure you cancel before the month is up, because, you guessed it, it’s a subscription.)

You know what. I’m sick of it. I’m sick of this awful streaming landscape where I have to download apps, put in passwords, and download new services just to watch my favorite team play. And just when you think you’ve got it figured out, you come to a game like this.

Some random casino, in the middle of nowhere, creates a basketball tournament and then inks some strange deal where some obscure streaming service that you’ve never heard of has full rights. Forcing fans to download it and subscribe to it, likely hoping they forget to cancel after the games are over.

This is where we are as a society? We’ve got the world’s knowledge stored in a supercomputer in our pockets, we’ve got some robot sending pictures from Mars back to earth in high-res (somehow), and we’re curing diseases today that were deadly just 20 years ago. With all of our advancements, you’d think the world would be becoming a more simple, easy-to-navigate place where everyone is happy and gets along.

Turns out, you’d be wrong. Welcome to the nightmare where despite all the knowledge in the world, truth has become subjective, everyone is always mad at one another, my internet barely reaches my upstairs bedroom, and I am over here paying $30 bucks to watch NC State play a bunch of scrubs on a Tuesday night in November.

This is getting out of hand, but you know what, my bitter [email protected]$ is going to pay that $30 because I love NC State and I wouldn’t miss a game for nothin’. And you know what, most of you are going to do the same. And FloSports entire business model of corning the market on niche games, charging a ton per month (knowing everyone will cancel) will pay off and allow them to keep operating. Heck, it may even encourage other services to take the same route! And the demise of live sports and the steaming landscape will continue until one day Amazon or Google decide to swallow up everyone and create competing all-encompassing streaming bundles, which will take us back to the early 2000s when your options were Time Warner or Direct TV and we were bitching about not having enough choices.

With that said. Here is how to subscribe to FloSports and how to cancel.

1. Click here and subscribe

2. Next, DON’T BE FOOLED!! CHOOSE the $29.99 plan if you plan to cancel after NC State plays.

They try to show you a lower monthly price for the YEARLY subscription, but you’ll get hit with the $210 yearly fee, so be careful.

3) After the tournament is over, if you don’t want it anymore, here is how you cancel.

A pasta eatin', Wolfpack lovin' loudmouth from Raleigh by way of New Jersey. Jimmy V and Chuck Amato fanboy. All opinions are my own and you're gonna hear'em.
