A10 signs deal with ESPN+; should CAA follow?
http://www.atlantic10.com/ViewArticle.db...=211717410

Looks like A10 is moving all their A10 digital network content to ESPN+.

Should CAA do something similar or is CAA.TV the way to go?

I think we can all agree that CAA needs an upgrade in this area. ESPN would be great, but I would love to see a "Game of the Week" type deal get the best game on a National Stage. Maybe something like CBS Sportsnetwork or NBC Sportsnetwork could work too.

ESPN+ is not the ESPN app we know now. It is a separate service for $4.99 month. I do not think that is a smart route to go.

A10 still has TV deals with traditional TV outlets. This is for content that does not make traditional TV

Oh ok... If there is money involved, I'd prefer the free LOL

ESPN live streaming is way behind where it needs to be. For instance, with the NBA finals game on last night, the UNCW/ECU baseball game continued to stall/freeze. I have 300 mbps internet and it happens EVERYTIME there is a big game on a national stage. It not only impacts the stream of the big event, it also impacts most of the other live content. I'd rather have slightly lower quality on the CAA.TV app than unrelizable live streaming.

I watched the entire game post rain delay on my fire stick and it didn't freeze once. I just have Spectrum basic. Quite the opposite experience with me as Hoops games froze on the reg when i would be watching.

It's a known fact the WatchESPN app has significant struggles for many consumers. Just search twitter and you'll see. I can't explain why your experience was good yesterday and mine wasn't. The interupptions I had on CAA.TV were usually 1-2 seconds every 10 minutes or so. The WatchESPN app will completely freeze on me during any major event (NFL draft, College Football playoffs, monday night football, etc.)

I don't have twitter, but i'll take your word on it. I'm surprised, the few hoops games that were on ESPN and then baseball i've never had an issue. Maybe platform to which you are watching? Mine's always on my fire stick with ESPN

Have you updated it since they rolled out ESPN Plus? The new version worked great for me last night.

My ESPN channel on Roku stalls out and recalibrated for a few seconds every few minutes during big games. I was watching the first half of the NBA Finals last night and it would do it mid-shot almost every other possession. Either that or the HD would go in and out. For a channel owned by Disney with billions of dollars behind them... I find that bush league and unacceptable.

I’ve never had many problems with CAA.TV outside of some of the local announcers completely sucking at their jobs. So sometimes I turn the video on mute and listen to Mike V call the games. That guy consistently punches above his weight class as a radio announcer. Good dude.

CUSA is following the A10 and has made a deal to put most of their non traditional TV games on ESPN+ instead of Conference USA Digital TV
