@ProContractor: stop whining, SD is free, HD is expensive to host, also it gets you an awesome t-shirt for your character ingame :D

@blog: awesome :D i'm to cheap to get there, so i will watch the HD stream :-)

@Chribba: i dare you to do it for a plex :D

Don't you think 20 euros is a bit steep for just a higher res version of a free broadcast?

Especially since there's no guarantee it's going to be up, or good quality (as in sound mixing)..

Will there be recorded HD vids of the panels afterwards? Might pay 99 eurocents a piece on iTunes for those...

Are there tattoos we don't know about, then? Wink

Looking forward to watching some of the FF vids since I am not attending.

BOO!!!

-100 point to CCP for CHARGING FOR THE HD STREAM! No doubt they are planning this for the alliance tournament too.

You fan fast is effectively a giant marketing campaign. DO NOT CHARGE US MONEY TO WATCH YOUR ADVERTISEMENTS.

It seems as of late (1.5 years +/-) the marketing department has been running ccp. - Anyone else feel that way?

Agreed. If CCP wants their microtransactions, this is one I can get on board with.

When you consider that previously we had to wait for the highlight reel on Youtube if we couldn't be there in person, I'd pay the 1 plex to see Sreegs' presentation in SD; HD is icing on the cake.

Yep, also a BlizzCon 'Virtual Ticket' costs almost the double, $40.

Yay, the first of many "EXCLUSIVE INGAME T-SHIRT FOR PLEX" arrives.

What a sickening insightful look to what the future holds for us.

Yay for EVE TV, great that we will have some live stream!

But ... do you really think it is such a good idea to let the most loyal customers (the others wouldn't want to watch fanfest vids anyway) pay for the stream? Especially that most probably someone will post the hd vids on the net sooner or later anyway.

So what do you gain? A few hundred bucks from additinonally sold PLEX.
But what do you lose? Lots of goodwill credit from the players and some reputation.

Do you really think that is worth it? I have my doubts.

I think the price is all right. Especially given there is a free option.

My internet connection isn't good enough for HD streams anyway so I'll stick with the SD version. However I think charging for better quality is a step in the wrong direction from CCP. New space nebula in systems? Just one PLEX and you have it. Tattoos for your Brutor character? Another PLEX. Don't cry it's just vanity items that aren't of real use anyway, pay or accept that you're a second class customer.
Ok this is a bit harsh picture of the future, but charging for graphics is the first step.

However I'm looking forward to enjoying fanfest even though I can't attend in person!

Oh please stop the whingers. If you don't want to pay for HD, don't. You can still watch the entire thing for free. Man you people will cry about anything.

Good to hear that HD stream will be available. I watched AT8 in HD stream and it was perfect quality for me so i think its worth 1 plex. Sure the rest of whiners can watch SD stream and share the lags with other freebee lovers.
I am carebear with lots of isk and i want my quaffe shirt ugh

Just one PLEX and you have it. Tattoos for your Brutor character?

Tatoos is already on Sisi. As for the other - if you want quality you have to pay more.
All you stupid whiners screwed the good idea with remap for plex, so now CCP wont ever listen you, and im glad they will provide paid content. All companies doing this already. Take for example Bioware, Bethesda or EA with their DLC content for small amount of money.
Why you are not crying about Dragon Age 2 redeeming items?

Wow so much griping! I would be extremely ****ed if there wasn't a free option but there is, so the way I see it there is no excuse.

Broadcasting HD live is expensive! So having to pay for HD when there is a free SD option is not underhanded or evil or malicious in any way.

Also everyone saying "Wah, CCP is trying to make more money!" ... YES THEY ARE, THEY ARE A BUSINESS! They were nice enough to throw a free exclusive in-game item for the purchase of the HD stream. You aren't paying for the shirt, you are paying for the stream with extra incentive. Thank you CCP for being a company that knows how to not go belly up so I can keep flying my internet spaceships. I will be purchasing my HD stream.

I'm perfectly willing to pay for HD, just as I paid for blizzcon on-line access. Two questions though:

1. Will HD stream keep up with the demand? If I pay I don't really want to experience connection losses, lags and stuff. On my side I can handle the up/dl - 60 Mbits. Are you well prepared to deliver the quality?

2. Will there be access to the content for some time after the event? If I miss it as it happens can I watch it later?

Cheers!

I agree, SD for free, HD paid is a model I can accept. Of course I'd prefer it if we got the same quality and content in HD for free, but I don't really think that this price will be much too ask for.
Hold on - tattoos are on Sisi? Downloading NOW.

Is "HD" going to be 720p or full proper 1080p?

If I pay the fee for HD, will I be able to replay in stream in its entirety?

PLEX for everything \o/ What an awesome idea.

If I don't submit to your microtransaction ****, can I download these in HD format from you anyway? Will recordings be hosted at all?

You didn't mention this kindof important stuff for people with embarassingly terrible office connections, where one HD stream will cause employees from around 10 companies going door to door with golf clubs.

Also, can I give you 100m or something for the t-shirt? It does seem cute, and I think it's pretty bad to offer things like this as an exclusive item that you can only obtain by paying for other stuff. This insidious kind of promotion tends to make me want to stop giving the promoters my credits.
