We need more games period on TV, not just the road games. Many of the alumni are out of the Hampton Roads area. Many times the locals might be out of the area on vacation or for work when the games take place. Also, we don't want something that is limiting the games to just Cox Cable picking up the games. Too many other outlets would be excluded from the broadcast (Charter Cable, Dish TV, Fios, DirecTV, etc.) and most of the ODU fans would miss seeing those 'televised' games.

We need to be on CBS or ESPN every game... but it ain't going to happen. I hear you, but Cox picking up most of the games again like they did when we were in the CAA would at least be a step in the right direction.

That would be meaningless to me since I would not have any access to the programming. Cox Cable isn't even offered in my area.

I was pretty impressed with BeIN. I would be happy if we could cut a deal with them.

I can't imagine BeIN would be interested in a deal with a non-P5/Notre Dame/BYU school. Most likely ODU would produce for online and then offer individual games to local stations and regional sports channels.

Any chance ODU could work out an independent deal with MASN? That would be ideal. Heck, I'd give them every game not purchased elsewhere for free. Thats exposure in the area we need it.

MASN often didn't pick up ODU's ASN games. I don't know that they'd make room on the schedule for ODU-produced games.

RE: Good luck finding ODU on TV now
I think with the awful situation we are currently in, if we can't get a deal to give our games away to ESPN or Bein, then CUSA should be the groundbreaker on streaming. Build a quality streaming app for every streaming device, sell or give rights to the "CUSA Network" to all major streaming services like Sling and PS Vue, and lead the way to a nearly all online network that covers all CUSA games. It would take a lot of groundwork to be laid, but at least it would put us ahead of the curve and make every football and basketball game available nationally.

Wasn't ESPN supposed to provide equipment and training to improve schools streaming?

Just as long as we (and the rest of CUSA) paid for it ourselves. I think our games on CUSA.tv were better than most.

That is kinda what they are trying to do. That's what CUSA.tv is. They did get enough money to get some mid-range equipment...which is why we now have graphics and some replays on cusa.tv broadcasts.

What they did NOT get was money for personal or training the personal they have to use the new equipment. So what they get is maybe 4 or 5 full Monarch Media staff now learning this new stuff on the fly (and having to jerry-rig it into existing systems {video boards, sound ext...} that weren't designed for it) then backfilling the rest with volunteers and students. Which is why we get camera angles that are all over the place at times.

I think getting CUSA.TV onto streaming devices is hugely important. Nobody wants to stream games from a website on their computer.
