Although this $3.99 is probably well worth it, we can only venture to guess that with the rise in cord cutting, more people this year want to watch the games streaming through their HTPC (home theater PC) and thus warrant the charge for extra bandwidth, support etc. Kinda lame in my opinion, but at least they aren’t greedy like the NBA and charging exorbitant amounts of money for a shortened season!
