Lots of schools cancelled today, and tomorrow as well. Does anyone know of the tri-dual scheduled for Penns Valley will go as scheduled?

For a lot of wrestling fans it’s a win because they already have flo and can watch all matches not just the finals on PCN. And I believe overall viewers will go up simply because flo is an internet broadcast so it’s world wide. Personally, if it was in addition to, instead of replacing PCN... I’d be cheering and tickled. But making it only on a pay site is IMO a horrible deal for wrestling fans in PA. The casual fans are now not watching, all the people that tune in because local wrestler or team is doing well will no longer watch...
Growing the sport within Pa is now for all intents and purposes is dead

PCN has always been a pay site for many people.

I know... but you go from a smaller percentage to nobody unless you pay. That’s why I liked the idea of “in addition to” the more people it’s available to the better. The people that want it can get it... but one thing not being mentioned.... flo coverage people are good..... their service sucks!!! Every high demand broadcast I’ve tried to watch was either interrupted, froze, lost either video or audio... etc.

I have a flo account and have never had a problem with the video feeds.

Good to hear. Gives me some hope. Every time a few of us got together and set up to watch something there’s been an issue of some kind.guess we’ll have to keep grinding for 4 more years anyway lol

Point being casual fans (with kids) that won’t be watching. Viewership will go up based off worldwide members.... but there’s no way I’ll believe droves PA “casual fans” will be signing up for flo. Yes there will be some diehards that don’t already have it that sign up.... but overall instate viewers will go down. A sport doesn’t grow with shrinking numbers of viewers
