Fortunately, I don't actually care about sports broadcasting, so I ditched cable years ago and haven't looked back. (The other realtime argument I hear frequently is news, but I find a wide variety of online sources to be better at delivering this content anyway. I prefer to read my news.)
Unfortunately it's only available in a few markets right now. I assume it'll expand if it's successful.
It's only if it manages to gather steam slowly that it has a chance of really disrupting the networks.
(Of course, I still really wish Google had simply starved the beast in the early tens; In 2010 or 2011, Google could simply have put less effort into copyright protection and more into original programming, and utterly rewritten the Movie and TV industries in one fell swoop)
Also, if you ask kindly ahead of time many sports bars, in my experience at least, are happy to accommodate an out of the way screen to a non-local game.
Get to know a bar close to you and often they will be happy to have your business on your game days. Find some other fans in the area and they are often even happier to have your business. Sometimes that's how those "go to" bars start and suddenly you find they are so happy for your business it becomes a thing and they have your team's logos on a banner outside announcing a game day drink special.
