NUGGETS TO REPEAT LAST YEAR'S PLAYOFF SUCCESS: PAY-PER-VIEW
Published April 25, 1995
The Nuggets and Prime Sports will combine for the second consecutive year to broadcast the team's home playoff games on a pay-per-view basis. Last year, the operation's sign-up rate was "considerable," as 55,000 households enrolled for games against Seattle and Utah. Prime Sports spokesperson Craig Kuhl noted that 13% of homes with access bought the last Utah game. Local bars can purchase games starting at $100, with the fee based on the size of the establishment. Team officials say there has been no negative reaction. Nuggets VP Shawn Hunter: "It wasn't a matter of free TV or pay TV. It's a matter of no TV or pay TV. Up until last year, the Nuggets never televised their home playoff games." For the first series, the team's away games will be on KWGN (Chance Conner, DENVER POST, 4/25).
