RE: ESPN Plus
Guarantee CUSA will sell their soul for this. Congrats to all the fans who thought ESPN was what we needed to be on...Now we will have to pay $7 a month for all of our games that no one else will pay for when a lot of fanbases were used to watching our games through regular TV with DVR's.

RE: ESPN Plus
We need to be compensated if go this route, why would we give rights to a $5.00 a month service and let ESPN keep the money when we can do it ourselves? The reach of ESPN3 will be reduced if an additional fee is charged. Also we will be responsible for the production so if the quality is improved that is something we would do as well.

I would hope MT remains in the same conference with LaTech down the pike. Seems like a well-run program.

Good in football, hoops, and put their best foot forward in other sports.

RE: ESPN Plus

I think ESPN-Plus is going to be a freestanding service. Its going to have content not available on any of the other ESPN platforms and I dont think most of the content seen on the other ESPN platforms will be available on ESPN-Plus. I think Magnus was saying it would be a way to monetize the non-P5 content they have. What I dont get is how ESPN-3 continues to have value if you move its most valuable content over to ESPN-Plus.

Sounds to me like ESPN-3 will become little more than an ESPN-Go App and most of the ESPN-3 exclusive content will be moving to ESPN-Plus. For instance, it looks like MLS out of market soccer games will be moving to the ESPN-Plus platform.

Who said I want to go back to the Sun Belt? I just hope WKU still has same deal we have always had 1 or 2 seasons when the SUn Belt told us we could not be on Fox College Sports anymore...I have always hated ESPN3, so why would I want to go back to the Sun Belt and be on ESPN3 again? Not understanding your logic?
