Will this be "re-run city"??? Undoubtedly they will be losing some audience (and revenue, but maybe their costs go down (and how that may affect the conferences and professional sports financially, let alone individual teams). If you get out of the habit of watching sports programming, will you watch as much (or more?) when it returns? Just kinda thinking about it from a "business" point of view.

Probably 24 hour sports center or something similar of Fox. Without any sports there's literally no reason to tune into any of the stations. The stations are a equal to CNN and the 24 hour news stations but through a sports filter.

Definitely not a good time if any sports networks contracts are up for renewal.

Will the NFL draft be done by WebEx or some other multiuser call-in platform?

A week or so ago Sinclair mentioned being close to bringing back the RSNs to Dish. They just made a deal with YouTube a week ago.

Here's a thought that doesn't warrant its own thread:

Is this going to be the first Saturday in modern American history with no major sports events? I think today is the first sportsless-day since immediately after 9/11. But a Saturday with nothing?

NFL free agency and Draft will still occur, so there will be hours of coverage there for the networks. The NFLPA's CBA vote will be announced by the auditor likely next week too, that's a few days of content too.

The UFC seems to be the defiant one still hosting their events as Dana White has a direct line to POTUS. As long as they continue to hold events, expect ESPN to promote them.

Also, ESPN has deals for esports. While the live events are canceled, they may air the online events just for content.

Our TV was out for about 6 months in 8th grade. I never went back to regularly watching TV series.

They just showed the Cuse/UConn 6OT game last night. That takes up a lot of time.

BTW, the best game ever
