RE: MWC TV deal with Fox Sports and CBS
I think they did quite well---and did an exceptional job of raising their linear exposure with those OTA national games on FOX and CBS. Those are huge.

RE: MWC TV deal with Fox Sports and CBS
might see Fox starting finally starting to build FS2.

Sounds like 3 CBS games, probably close to 7 FS1 games, 20 games on CBSSN, and 9-16 games on FS2.

So FOX now has exclusive and partial deals with the Big Ten, Big XII, Big East, Pac-12 and Mountain West. Hopefully there’s still room for another conference like C-USA but I won’t hold my breath on that one.

Off topic, but did CUSA ever finish or annouce their 2020-2025 bowl tie-ins?

RE: MWC TV deal with Fox Sports and CBS
Wow .... this is a slam-dunk for the MWC. More money than anyone thought they'd get and excellent exposure. And only tied in for six years.

By my reckoning, this is $3.75m per school if Hawaii is in the deal, $4.1m per school if not, either way even more than the very good $3.5m that SBJ reported last month, which some AAC fans claimed was surely exaggerated.

I think any talk of Boise or anyone else going to the AAC has vanished.

I also admit to being wrong - I thought that the long delay in getting the deal done was bad news, and meant a bad deal, for the MWC.

Financially, it looks like a very good deal. The MWC will be the only FBS conference without an ESPN contract, the only FBS conference not televised on the ESPN family of networks. That ends the Boise State-ESPN relationship, which has worked well for both. It will be interesting to see how the new relationships work out.

Yes, Hawaii is in the deal, but in a really interesting way.

As many folks here already know, Hawaii has a PPV deal with Spectrum. The deal expires this summer but has been paying Hawaii around $2.5 million per year provided Spectrum has at least 7 Hawaii football games to include in the PPV package it sells in the Islands.

The new MWC deal provides for CBS and Fox to broadcast no more than 4 Hawaii games per season. That ensures Hawaii will be very well positioned to continue allocating at least 7 games to Spectrum (assuming a 13 game schedule and no more than two OOC road games per season that could be telecast by the rights holder of the opponent). So presumably, Hawaii will be able to extend the PPV arrangement and continue pulling in $2.5 million or more per season from Spectrum.

In addition, Hawaii will also receive money from the new MWC deal, but this will be limited to 80% of the difference between whatever Hawaii receives from Spectrum and what the rest of the MWC members receive on average from CBS and Fox. (The 20% haircut is due to Hawaii being a football-only rather than a full member of the MWC.)

So if Hawaii continues to receive roughly $2.5 million per year from Spectrum, the new MWC deal will pay Hawaii an additional $1.2 million or so ($3.8 million total), while the other 11 MWC members will each receive roughly $4 million per year from the MWC deal.

I think it's a fair arrangement and about the best Hawaii and the conference could have hoped for without being locked into a long-term contract.

Here's an article from the Hawaii press about the deal:

Do you think Hawaii will take their deal to the Open Market this time? I remember last time they didn't and Raycom was upset they didnt get a chance to bid on it. With Raycom no more, would Gray TV or Nexstar be interested. I know Nexstar has a deal with the SoCon

Having games OTA is a big bonus for a true core cutter like me! Now if Stadium is allowed to show tier 3 games OTA then that’s even a bigger bonus!

Now if we need to get details on the LA bowl, everything will be settled for the MW for the next 6 years.

Not likely since Spectrum has a dominating share of the cable TV market in the Islands, and since they've been very accommodating to the university by supplementing football PPV telecasts with a basic cable channel (available to all subscribers) that's dedicated to Hawaii non-football sports. In a given academic year Spectrum televises at least 70-80 men's and women's basketball games, baseball games, men's and women's volleyball matches and soccer matches on this channel. Anyone who starts on a Hawaii basketball or volleyball team has a good chance of being recognized around town as a TV celebrity.

Coloradan Article

“The six-year term was the maximum length the MW was willing to agree to, Thompson said.

"We feel the next five years are going to bring change in the market, perhaps significantly, from both a technology and distribution perspective," he said. "In addition, a significant number of major rights deals will expire during this period of time, especially in the collegiate rights market.

"It was more important to us that once the dust settles from this period of change, we have all our inventory available to take advantage of any of those changes in the marketplace."“


Well the AAC will only be halfway when a lot of deals expire.
