Thanks for all your comments. Drag to hear that Comcast digital sucks, as that's what we've gone with. I'm not going to buy until closer to next season (if I get it then - it all depends on finances and sacrifices).

I do agree that it is a relative bargain. But I don't think the value is 6 cents a game. [statistics nerd] Considering that many games will be broadcast simultaneously, and no human being can watch every complete game in a season, I think this is a politician's number, not a useful statistic. Unless you have a fleet of recorders and a staff to do it all and no job other than watching NBA re-runs, I'll say the per-game value (based on games actually watched) is quite a bit higher, but still a bargain.
