NFL on your iPod

NFL on your iPod The National Football League, has made a deal with online audio distributer Audible (who usually distribute audio books) to record the remaining playoff games for fans to be played on portable audio players like the iPod. The recordings will be made and then sold within a day through Apple Computer's iTunes music store. They are expected to cost around $10 a game or between $1 and $5 for highlights. The recordings will be availible also on other music download services but Apple may have the advantage since they have an existing relationship with Audible.
Now it's just all about sitting around and waiting to hear if they make much more money off this little trick. Personally I don't think I would ever pay $10 for the audio recording of any sports game.

well said!! I actually believe you can already get audio recordings for free of the net (legally!) but, am not quite sure as they may be copyrighted by the NFL. If they are copyrighted, then just don't download them ;)

If I have time to go through all that trouble just to pay $10 to listen to a football game, I'll just watch it.

I'm sure they will try the same thing here in Australia (for Aussie rules of couse). A bit of waste for us Iriver users. We can record directly from the built-in FM radio player. Ten bucks to listen to yesterday's news. Good luck Ipod losers (oops, that should read users)!

lol, I do like my IPod but, it is obsurd that it should have to pay 10 bucks like Mtech said, when you can just use a FM tuner and recorder to get the same stuff.
