I'm new to the site but I want to know what you might think of a new website service called 'polo on demand.com'
It's something I'm setting up with a friend who has been shooting high and medium goal polo in the UK for the last 17 years or so. We're now putting the matches online, the Queens cup, the Gold cup and the Cartier international plus many more. We will also feature matches from around the world as the year progresses.We launch on June 12th just in time for the Queens cup final. It's a monthly membership ( £19.99) or a 24hr pass to the whole website (£6.99)
Does this sound interesting to you? if so go to the website www.poloondemand.com and register free for email updates.
Hope you'll all join up and be able to watch all the matches you can't physically make it to.
Sounds like what Pololine and morning line already cover under their subscription service. PoloZONE.com offers some international coverage for free (no subscription required) and a lot of local U.S. tournaments that are submitted by polo clubs for publication. I'm not sure if there is room in the industry for any more subscription-based services.
I think it's a great opportunity to watch the matches online, in case you couldn't make it to the game or if you want to see it again.
I do think monthly and 24hrs prices are too high for the service. www.polo.tv offers a similar service for free, albeit with a 'limited' portfolio.
Thanks for the feedback. ideally we will be lowering prices as we go, the aim is to be a free service eventually. what would be a better price in your opinion?
basically if you wanted to buy a match from any of the usual sources you are talking about £20 a DVD. so a whole season for the same price seems a good deal in that respect.
also in response to Lynn, you'll find the service quite different to what's out there already. yes, it's polo matches but pololine generally only put up highlights to a sound track - which is okay but you don't get the full thrust of the game.
we're not trying to step on their toes a they do it so well already.
early days though. thanks for your comments
