EDIT: Cox bill. Figured it out!

I thought I had read (perhaps in one of the Bourne Dialogues...not exactly sure) that we already meet the requirements set out in the Cox Bill.

After I read the article about the Knight Commission, it all started to come back to me. We meet for FCS, but I was thinking FBS.

For FCS we have and we are currently at 58% under the formula, so we would need to either cut costs or raise revenues to hit the 55% number for non P5 FBS.

I don't know if I'd call that a TV deal, but rather a supported method for watching CAA.TV streaming other than through a web browser. Hopefully it'll work better from a reliability stand point.

RE: New CAA TV deal in the works
So how does Roku work? I assume set up is similar to Chromecast, but do I still need an ESPN subscription to use WatchESPN, or does my Roku account take care of that? Obviously Netflix, Hulu, etc are going to be extra, but what about the cable channels?

Not being much of a TV watcher, so how does Roku work? I know you need to by a Roku thingee but is there a monthly fee like Netflix or similar? have no idea how these new fangled gizmos work.

No monthly fees for the Roku itself, but some of "apps" would have their own subscriptions (ex. Netflix, Hulu). Apps like WatchESPN would be free, but you would need a login, just like you were watching on your browser or phone.

The CAA app would be free (I'm assuming) and you wouldn't need to pay any subscription. If that's not the case then they screwed up . . Given that we're talking about Stretch here I wouldn't put it past them.

Overall this could work pretty well, but I'll reserve judgement to see how they implement it.
