    We've been spoiled with CC, Harrisburg, and WIHS. Live streaming is quite expensive.

    If the other 3 shows can do it, why not The National? I heard (but have no idea if it is true) that there were over 300,000 hits on the live streaming for WIHS. And everyone of them had to last through the Smart Pak commercial before seeing the show.

    Why can't the National do the same thing?

    I will not be buying the first 3 days. And I will The National for trying to make money off horsepeople when there is another way to get the income.

    I would think that USEFnetwork would be proud to video stream the National Horse Show in its entirety.

    So the "jewel" in the crown charges when the rest don't? That sucks!

    However, maybe once the National realizes that paid streaming = 1/10 of the viewers from CC, Harrisburg, and WIHS, perhaps they will come to their senses and next year have ads instead of charging the viewers.

    This sucks! Last year the whole show was free. I guess they're (the officials) greedy and want to make more money then they did last year? I hate to clue them but most people are not going to pay and will just wait for the days the feed is live, like I'm going to do! We'll see how much money they make and how many viewers they get the first 3 days!

    I really need to get some darned work done so I'm happy it isn't free.

    Yeah, I do think having the first three days NOT free seems silly. I'm sure they will see that too, once the show starts. Heck, at least the "big" events we can watch for free

    If anything you'd think they'd make the very popular events pay-per-view especially if they wanted to make some money. I cant imagine more people paying to watch the hunters vs. the Maclay and the Grand Prix.

    We have definitely been spoiled with the last three shows! EqTv and USEF have been awesome

    I agree.

    That said, I'm not complaining.

    Free is free, and I'm happy to see what they provide, especially since they are providing the Maclay and the Grand Prix. I just can't bring myself to complain about free live streaming.

    Maybe employers were complaining that work wasn't getting done during the week!

    On the other hand, many of the potential viewers in the northeast probably won't have an electricity to view the first few days anyhow...

    Ha, a reverse sponsorship of sorts - "we'll pay you not to broadcast during the work week!"

    I'm bummed because I have today & probably tomorrow off work now and if my power stays on, it'd be nice to watch. Oh well, I'll probably lose power and/or internet.

    That's true. At least we won't be missing much if power does go out for a few days.

    Seriously. If I"m going to pay for something, it's going to be the Grand Prix or the Maclay, not the juniors or A/Os (no offense to those divisions, but after the past few weeks, I feel like I've seen enough lovely hunter rounds for free).

    I don't think this says anthing about the show being cheap. It does however make a statement about how cheap COTH posters are. ;-) With a rather largesense of entitlement as well ;-)

    Going in person for Sat/Sun, so meh.

    That said, I'm NOT sure this show is getting the sponsorship & vendor support it was hoping for. I'm sure they'd make the stream free if it were practicable to do so.

    It's also worth noting that actual bums-in-seats ADMISSION to the NHS *is* free for all the day sessions, including Maclay Finals - so perhaps charging for the stream is a way of encouraging folks within reasonable driving distance to actually come to the show. I'm of the age to recall how much it cost to go watch the NHS at the old Madison Square Garden, so to me free admission is a huge deal!
