BLUES TO OFFER PLAYOFF GAMES ON PAY-PER-VIEW BASIS
Published April 7, 1995
The Blues are close to placing some of their home playoff games on pay-per-view, according to Dan Caesar in this morning's ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH. Blues President Jack Quinn: "Yes, it has been under discussion. That's all I want to say about it now." Sources estimate the telecasts would be priced in the $15- 20 range per game. Prime Sports GM Tim Griggs: "We are going to the cable operators formally next week." Prime has the rights to Blues home games for the first two rounds of the playoffs. Most, if not all, road playoff games would remain on KPLR-TV. The pay- per-view area would affect any homes in a 35-mile radius of the Kiel Center. Outside the area, the telecasts would appear at no extra charge on the regular Prime channel. Conference and Stanley Cup Finals games would be on ESPN and Fox and would not apply (ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 4/7).
