Yeah, that's what I'm finding. Every one of the streaming services is basically like buying a cable package. $50/mo min to watch the games. Fug that.

Wait, are they still intending on doing groups of {6, 4, 4, 4, 4, 3}? How does that work? Why didn't they immediately move over a team from Group A when Dallas was withdrawn?
