Big Ten’s new six-year deal with ESPN and FOX; BTN heading to Hulu and Youtube
http://collegefootballtalk.nbcsports.com...d-youtube/

Quote:As the Big Ten opened up its media day event in Chicago, commissioner Jim Delany brought with him an announcement regarding the future of the conference’s television package. Delany announced the Big Ten has reached a deal on a restructured television package with broadcast partners ESPN, FOX and CBS Sports (for basketball) and an extended deal with Big Ten Network that runs through 2032. And he had more to share a swell.

The exact terms of this new deal have not been disclosed at this time, but it would stand to reason the Big Ten will continue to turn a nice profit through their deals with both ESPN and FOX (and CBS Sports for basketball).

But Big Ten Network president Mark Silverman had some other news to share as well.

In addition to a new six-year contract with ESPN and FOX for regular season coverage of football (and FOX with the Big Ten Championship Game), Delany also announced the Big Ten Network will be heading to Hulu and YouTube TV, making the network more accessible to those consumers who continue to cut the cord on their TV providers. While there are still plenty of cable subscribers available to reach and the majority of TV viewers are still using cable to watch their TV, the trends are more and more leaning toward the cord-cutting methods.

Big Ten Network will be adding a handful of former Big Ten stars to its football coverage; James Laurinaitis, Braylon Edwards, and Corey Wootton. Big Ten Network, now in its 10th year of operation since launching as the first conference-branded network, will also be creating content for regional sports outlets, like an Ohio State show on SportsTime Ohio. The BTN will also work with ESPN to air a special series following new Minnesota head coach P.J. Fleck and BTN’s Big Ten Elite program will chronicle the 2016 Big Ten champions, Penn State.

So for football: minimum 15 prime time network broadcasts.
Not bad!

Between traditional TV, cable, and streaming rights, it should make for an interesting next several years.

Be exciting to see how the $$$ difference between the haves and have-nots will affect schools decisions on whether to enter the realignment circus and once those decisions are made, how it will affect the $$$ (and years) providers are willing to shell out.

So I came across an article that had an interesting tidbit.

http://washington.cbslocal.com/2017/08/0...-year/amp/

"According to Network President Mark Silverman,... with video content also available on Facebook, Twitter, etc."

Has anyone else seen that or heard about it?
