Still.. I think they should do some kind of Bonus for Purchase of the Ticket like higher Bandwidth or Server-Priority, but they should not decline non-paying costumers to watch the stream.. I think that is a really bad move.

So, you guys aren't even getting to see all panels?
For $40 you should get all panels, a mount, a pet, an in-game Legendary for transmog purposes, and a blowjob.
Anyone know why direct tv is charging 50 bucks for their stream?
Ivy Bridge 3570k OC 4.0
ASRock Z77 Extreme4
Mushkin Enhanced Blackline Frostbyte DDR3 1600 8GB
I know that there are going to be free ones, but who knows if they will be 720p like the original stream? I don't want to watch a Pixel-Party on my screen when they Showcase what comes next for WoW.
I would pay 15 euro, but 30 no. It seems like we are just paying for the in-game bonuses. If they didn't offer these bonuses the price would literally be at most 5$ and not more.
Nope, its fine how it is. Pay for it if you want to watch or dont if you dont. 40 dollars is 5 hours minimum wage.
The pet and other miscellaneous bullshit is what makes it $40. I'd rather it be $10 without all the crap included.
I don't mind as long as the Starcraft tournament is free.
I am slightly disgusted by the amount of people who treat $40 as if it is pocket change. Please understand that everyone has a different disposable income, and some people don’t have a consistent income at all. You cannot call WoW subscribers freeloaders if they pay for the game every month. I –personally- think that $40 is a ridiculous amount to charge for an advertisement but I’m not altogether against them charging a price to view this content.
In my opinion anyone who pays for this is just paying for a mount, pet and a commercial and there are some people willing to spend a lot on those badly designed in-game mounts…. But yes, to each their own. I think the price is a shame for people who would enjoy the stream but simply don’t have money to throw away on a two day commercial but then again there’ll be plenty of illegal streams/sharing/etc. Seems pointless to even charge given Blizzard’s lax security.
In the end, it’s just for the mount/pet/etc. If you don’t have money to waste on those, don’t feel too bad.
And for people who are yammering on about whether or not Blizzard ‘profit’ or ‘justified marketing’, give it a rest. You don’t work for Blizzard, and I doubt many of you have an interest in actively monitoring Blizzard’s financial situation and/or have a degree in business. I always find it strange when customers defend a company’s business policies.
Yes... yes it is.
