All of our games are on ESPN3, at a minimum. Half of the Belt games are televised on higher level formats. Liberty TV isn't going to be paying anything significant for the carriage rights either.

No one watches BYU TV either except Mormons.

I don't get the benefit from BYU TV or Liberty TV. If anything, its a millstone, condemning our games to be broadcasted on networks that have zero exposure. You think the local sports bar is going to carry Liberty TV on its screens?

I don't think many of us liked BeIN. Liberty TV is like BeIN in a vacuum.

I wouldn't be surprised to see the Liberty Flames Sports Network get a deal with Sinclair Broadcasting.

CUSA isn't going to raid the Belt.

Doubtful. Liberty had zero votes last time they came up. I don't see enough people ever changing their minds.

LOL. That wouldn't surprise me either. But I'd remember that Sinclair's game is to PRETEND that they're not having an agenda. Many of their best media outlets are also network affiliates. They aren't pre-empting regular programming to run LU football. Maybe sub-channel 3 in certain markets. The multi-channels frequently aren't on local cable packages either (on Comcast yes - but are hard to find in a lineup - ATT U-verse doesn't carry sub-channel broadcast outlets at all in its packages)

If there is some sort of deal, it would probably be like a "Jefferson Pilot" deal where some, but not all Sinclair stations participate. Basically, it might take the form of LU simply paying for 3 hours of broadcasting so they can have their games carried.

And while I'm fully aware of what Sinclair is....they're not going to preempt network programming on a Saturday or Sunday (much less a weeknight) to show Sun Belt, CUSA, MAC, MWC, or Liberty football.

Studio C has over 1 million subscribers on Youtube. More than just Mormons watch BYUtv, and watch it for something besides football. 03-phew

We've shown the concept can work. However, BYUtv is also really high quality work. For example, when Arizona played us in baseball last year the Wildcat fans commented on how it was so much better than the Pac 12 network. The announcers actually knew the players names and knew the game, unlike the Pac 12 network. The camera work and Video quality was also better, according to them. If Liberty wants a successful channel, it take work and effort - not just a guy with a camcorder.

Work and effort already completed. If you haven't seen LFSN game broadcasts or the shows on it like Game On you should it's top notch.

I've watched numerous games on BYUtv and the Liberty channel. The quality was great and I'm neither Mormon or Baptist
