Is there ANY TV for CAA Basketball this year?
One of the fixtures ever year on CAA Basketball Media Day was the press release of the upcoming TV schedule. Each year they would announce that this was one of the best TV packages ever. This year, there was no announcement, and there is nothing posted on the CAA website yet.

While the power conferences have made every game for both men's and women's basketball available on national TV or a major streaming service, it seems like the CAA has just abandoned TV altogether.

Even in the age of streaming, TV is still the main method of exposure and engaging the casual sports fans. Seems to me like our new commissioner has taken the CAA 180 degrees backwards. If the TV exposure is as poor as it appears right now, the CAA could be taking a backwards turn toward the bottom of Division I basketball.

Someone on the JMU board posted that our commish has way too cozy of a relationship with a specific low-rent streaming service. Not sure if accurrate. Sorry to be light on the details. Will try to dig up those posts.

RE: Is there ANY TV for CAA Basketball this year?
In the New York City area, MSG Plus shows the Big 12 and YES shows the ACC. https://www.sny.tv/info/winter-sports-schedule is SNY's "Winter sports schedule" that hasn't been changed from 2016-2017. Hofstra had games with local announcers many years ago. After having only 4 televised games last season including 66 consecutive days without being on TV, Hofstra will have at least 3 out of conference games on TV, but I will be disappointed if none of the CAA games are on TV. As more TV channels are created, I wonder if any conference has had a bigger decline in games on TV than the CAA.

CofC will likely have 8-10 games via the Charleston Sports Network (Channel 36 OTA in Charleston), and we have the Wichita State game on CBSSN. The Great Alaska Shootout is on FloHoops, which is all pay (I believe $30 a month).

JMU football fans will be able to best answer that question

Worst TV deal in league history. I believe that even in the 90's before Drexel was in the conference, they had a deal with HTS to broadcast games regularly. Even the old NAC/America East in the 90's had games on local/regional TV on occasion. And there were fewer sports channels back then than there are now.

There will be no Drexel games on any actual television channels this year. I've been rooting for Drexel for 27 years and this has never happened before.

I'm glad that at least all of the games can be streamed for free and watched on TV. However, only those who specifically want to go out of their way to watch a specific game will tune in via streaming. There are lots of fans out there in front of their TV sets who just want to watch a basketball game. Without games on TV, you lose a lot of potential viewers.
