Your Money's No Good Here

Thanks to the College Basketball Blog, we know that the NCAA has signed an agreement with, allowing NCAA Tournament Games "On Demand" for every game outside my region. And, if I sign up before February 8, it's only $9.95, after that $19.95.

Great! Where do I sign up? Oh, wait. There are these System Requirements:

  • Windows operating system version 98se, 2000, XP, ME
  • Internet Explorer browser 5.5 or higher
  • Flash 6.0 or higher Session cookies must be enabled
  • Windows Media Player 9 or higher

Obviously, the first two of these aren't going to fly here. I did send a email to the company, asking them when they would be able to take my money, but I doubt it will be anytime soon.

On the other hand, if they hear from a lot of Linux and Mac users, all of whom offer them riches, maybe they'll realize that it's possible to make money off of us. If you're interested in the offer, go to, find the "Problems or Questions" link, and tell them that they have a problem.
