RE: CAA Tourney moving to Charleston in 2017
I would bet the number of people who can watch these games on CBSSN "nationally" is far lower than the number able to see the semifinals on various Comcast SportsNets before. And I suspect those Comcast SportsNets also reached much of the alumni base for CAA schools. This is going to be many fewer eyeballs watching the CAA's basketball showcase. Unless the money was huge (which I'm skeptical of), just streaming the damn thing online seems a much better option.

I have no doubt about this. The deal is worse for the conference in every single way.

I watch Navy games almost every Saturday in the Fall. I think the broadcasts are just fine.

To say this coverage is worse than last year is ridiculous.

In Wilmington the semis are going from free channel 10 with free streaming online to an upper tier cable channel with streaming behind a pay wall.

If you were not in a CAA area yes it may be a plus, but those wanting to watch the CAA in non CAA areas should not be the priority.

CBS Sports Network is national in that it is available nationally. But like someone said, it's usually only included in one of the upper packages offered by the various providers. NBCSN and Fox Sports 1 by comparison are often in the first or second tier option. If CBS gets their act together and wants to make this a real sports network, that would be great; but if their big ticket item is Army/Navy games when they aren't playing each other or teams like ND, USC, etc., that's not much to hope for.

They are, unfortunately, not even offered by Sling TV.

Anybody want to facetime the games to this message board? Probably a lot easier to watch than the other options...

Since I won't be able to watch the games on my basic cable, and since I don't go to bars, my only option left to watch the games will be to actually go to Charleston. Hmmm, it could be worse -- but I wish the tournament was back in Richmond!
