Big news on the TV front this upcoming season for @ConferenceUSA and possibly @UAB_FB.

The Blazers will be an attractive selection each week given their story and the fact it's smack dab in the middle of the market that routinely leads the nation in college football ratings.

C-USA and NFL reach a 4-year deal for a 10-game package of C-USA football games to be broadcast on NFL Network. The partnership will begin in the 2019 football season with one game each week on Saturday afternoon per the league.

CUSA should seriously consider tiering out their games based on their best matchup 3 weeks out like the other conferences do. Tier 1- NFL Network Tier 2- CBS Sports Network Tier 3- Stadium/ESPN+ would better showcase the league.

Cyrus Smith @CoolCyWrites
This should definitely be the move. For recruiting & exposure purposes, the best game of the week shouldn’t be behind a paywall. AAC & Sun Belt are unlikely to say the same with their new deals

RE: C-USA on NFL Network !
NFL Network is still behind a paywall, it's not in basic cable on any system that I know of, including DirecTV although it is in a lower tier than CBS Sports Network. It's not ESPN but in the year 2019 still being on TV and not being pushed to streaming is a plus

Something else that hasn't really been discussed but will be part of this is the fact that Sinclair Broadcasting which owns Stadium bought up most of the regional Fox Sports Networks (think Fox Sports South and the like, but they didn't buy FS1/FS2). I would expect more Stadium programming to show up on FSNs going forward too

RE: C-USA on NFL Network !
The upside is exposure and the possibility of 10 extra CUSA football games being broadcast that would not have been.

I have it in my Charter/Spectrum lineup but I got the Sports Pkg IIRC - been so long I don't remember, I just know what my cable bill is. NFL network is on mine along w/ many of the FSN ones but mostly watch the west coast games on them.

RE: C-USA on NFL Network !
It seems to be only a matter of time until someone mimics this deal so why not parlay this into a similar arrangement with the NBA network?

Yep. Verified it was in the blue package.
Stadium also is in the blue package.

I haven't felt interested in getting the orange package (which includes the ESPN channels)

This must have been AAF's (01-swc) TV deal, the league had to sacrifice itself for C-USA.

The AAF was paying the NFL Network to show the games and paying for the production of the games. So hopefully not the exact same tv deal.

Still, very excited about the announcement, should be great exposure for the conference.

I'm guessing the Facebook games are exclusively on Facebook? That part of the deal sucks. I don't want to watch the game on my computer or phone, and AFAIK there is no Apple TV/Roku/Fire TV app to watch video from Facebook. At least with ESPN3/+ you can get it into your TV set

There are Facebook Video apps on Apple TV and Firestick. That’s how I watch Facebook games.
