How can something be “worth it” and also “WAY OVERPRICED” at the same time?



O.K. let me go thru this for you. Are you ready TMC1 (I do like your User Name)? My first comment re overpriced (that started this thread), I was venting. My second comment re worth it, I was lamenting that it was, may I say, "too rich for my blood". I can't afford it; I'm just a pauper. 

Now that, I pray ye, that we got THAT settled for you TMC1 (funny, I typed "TMAC1 and then had to correct it...isn't that cute?), let me give you the opportunity to redeem yourself (because your comment has hurt my tender feelings a bit): set up a GoFundMe account for my Nationals viewing pleasure, and when you've got the 100 & some $$ collected for my registration you let me know here and I'll give you my Info. so you can create an account with TheCushionfor me. That way everyone can be happy, knowing that I can now watch the Nationals live. And the world will be a better place, because you helped someone (me) to enjoy the Nationals live.

And if it works out well, maybe next year we'll consider starting this thing earlier and sending me to Knoxville for the entire week (all expenses paid, of course), then we won't have to worry about the crappy feed on TheCushion like last night that I heard about.

Same. I havent been to a race since the Kings Royal and I made the mistake of giving in to my sprint car withdraws. The buffering and freezing was only really bad during the feature, but the sound was going in and out every 30-60 seconds throughout the entire broadcast. Also, it seemed like the camera man was completely unaware of the graphic showing the running order/lap times at the top of the screen. Many times as the cars went through turns 3 and 4 the graphic basically cut the top of the cars out of he frame. Just something that made the broadcast feel so amatuer. I'm grateful theres a streaming service for me to watch the races from the comfort of my living room but damn... 

Its f**king 2018, for $41 I expect a top notch stream. I will be buying Saturday's PPV only because I am splitting cost with friends and its the Nationals... other than that I will never buy another PPV from the cushion. To people saying the Cushion can set the price however theyd like... Yes I agree. But if last nights stream was only $25 and had issues I wouldn't be so mad about it and I'd probably be willing to buy tonight for $25 again. They would've made $50 off me. Instead they're only going to make $41 off me and here I am bashing them on the internet. I had 2 friends who wanted to watch tonight and asked me how the broadcast quality was last night. I told them truthfully that I thought it was poor. Both of them no longer plan to watch tonight. Theres another $82 dollars they've lost. 



Update: The Cushion must've had a fair share of complaints. I sent an email and was told my money would be refunded. They mentioned certain customers streamed flawlessly while others had issues similar to mine. Cool of them to do this tho. Things like this is what will make me order more PPVs from TheCushion in the future.

Well this is kind of interesting. I guess they're taking the squeaky wheel approach and only refunding those who complain. Last night's service was very good with only a few very minor issues for me, but it is kind of disheartening to see that I will need to officially complain to get any kind of refund for Wednesday's fiasco.

From their viewpoint it makes sense tho. If it streamed flawlessly (like some people have said) they shouldn't be getting refunds. I'm sure with DV setting the gold standard of online broadcasts for sprint car racing, the Knoxville Nationals is probably what keeps the Cushion in business. They obviously must have some multi year contract agreement to be sole broadcasters of this race. Hopefully in 2019 I'm watching in person or on DirtVision.
