Oh, sure, they could buy the transmitting equipment, towers, studio, and server space I suppose. But there's a lot more to a tv network than the equipment. There's programming, audience, getting on over the air broadcast channels in multiple nations, multiple languages, sustaining it all, getting onto 600 cable systems, Dish, Fios etc. Not to mention actually making it successful.

But mostly the resources are less tangible, like the will to do it, the mission behind it. Who would watch it? Unless they would just pay people to sit and watch it, which they can t afford to do, I don't see how they could get viewers.

Notre Dame could not replicate BYUTV easily. Not with the resources they have. Mayne if the Vatican paid for it, otherwise they will have to stick to apps etc.

Are you saying BYU is a bigger brand name then ND? How many Mormons are there? 12 million total? What are BYU's ratings on tv? This is a bad argument just tap out.

FYI- there is at minimum 1.2 billion Catholics worldwide. This is DavidSt type argument.

ND can create a station, but it won't be a network like BYUTV. Check, there are thousands of religious channels, but very, very few are catholic. Because, guaging the market, few of these Catholics want to watch Catholic broadcasting. I can't even name one nationwide Catholic network. A ND tv network could not get viewers. Without viewers, you have a pile of broadcasting equipment, not a network. No one wants to a watch a 24 hour mixed programming Catholic TV channel, especially one focused only on one university. If you think otherwise, you are not very savvy.

Not saying BYU is a bigger brand than ND. But its a brand their viewers want. And if ND had a tv brand viewers wanted, it would already exist. Stick to some sports on an app man. No university has a a real commercial tv network like BYUTV. Not even close. And if no others are doing it, I doubt ND is willing to put enough money into one to make work.

How many of the 1.2 billion have cable
How many towers in how many countries would it take to reach 1.2 billion people?
How many of the 1.2 billion are in the 3rd world and don't even know what streaming is, let alone be able to it?
A huge number means nothing if they dont /can't watch your channel man.
And most BYUTV viewers are not even LDS btw.

I truly hate to be the one to inform you that money isn't the only resource in the world. ND has more than most. I get that. But that doesn't mean they can do TV. They can have a nice sports app that airs old games and a couple live games a season or something, and some of the women's sports, but currently, a full network like BYUTV is simply beyond their scope. Sorry.
FYI a ton of ND viewers are atheist or protestant. Still dwarfs anything BYU can produce.

You mean ND sports fans. Well, duh....

No, we're committed to the ACC til 2036. Not many of our football games will appear on that network.

Sorry to highjack this thread , I am done.

All the ACC Network games are road games, so no.

RE: ND unveils "Fighting Irish TV"
I find it curious that they aren’t partnering with NBC on this and that this isn’t part of Peacock.

It makes me wonder where the ND-NBC relationship is going

No, not at all. It is limited to (for now) home football game replays, last year's game highlights, coaches' press conferences and some other original programming.

Why would ND need NBC for this, anyway?


To your point, ND's contract with NBC is up in four years. ND usually just renews a couple of years before the contract expires.

Is this a shot across the bow to NBC to pay more next time?

Will ND take its contract on the open market?

Or, is this just forward thinking and planning for the coming world of all streaming and on demand access, but on televisions, not phones/laptops/pads?

Is this simply just a way for ND to present "Tier 3" type content to its fans directly on their televisions without a partner?

Finally, would a school who was interested in joining the ACC in football any time in the future do this? Does this signal a firm intent to remain independent indefinitely?

Time will tell.

ND has no interest in a BYUTV channel.

This is not what this is. This is a sports app on a television. Period.

So, you derail this thread with a stance that nobody at ND even considered, wants or desires.

ND is a school, separate from the Catholic Church and run by the Holy Cross Fathers, a separate Order of priests, not the Vatican.

The Vatican has no say at all regarding what happens at Notre Dame.

You conflate ND with BYU. Two different things, altogether.

BYU is run directly by the Mormon Church hierarchy and is directly part of that religion's mission.

Hence, the entire Mormon Church is invested in BYUTV.

ND is not that, at all. It is a private university, interested in promoting its football team, not on a worldwide "mission" to convert people to Catholicism.

The Roman Catholic Church itself has no interest in this, none.

So, your thoughts on BYUTV versus this app are pretty much irrelevant.

30 years of NBC home games, Lance. Lindsey pre-dates that by twenty-five years or so.

Yes, BYUTV sports is a TV app too. That's the comparison silly. Maybe I wasn't clear enough. It is a sports app on tv, for streaming. Its also a cable network, a mobile app, over the air tv in multiple nations, a radio network, a satellite tv network, and a one stop center for all things BYU Sports. That s what I am saying the ND app should be.

I was only comparing how another school makes their sports available to their fans. An app (a 15 year past due concept) to make up for a hodge podge of broadcasts on multiple other tv networks and streaming services is a shame for fans of such a wealthy school. They should be more organized and wouldn't have to use ill conceived make shift app..Get it together in other words. Treat fans with same class and respect instead of nickel and diming them with apps and networks.

Clearly you don't know anything about BYUTV sports, or you would know it blows this app out of the water. Daily sports shows. Most of the university sports broadcast or streamed live, old classic content available on demand, including to watch offline.

Its a shame they give their fans a third rate experience with an app that isn't even working for everyone. I like the message that says "Come Back in 2036 for even more content". Lol.

Enjoy your app. Someday you'll have a network too. But that's the power of 80,000 plus BYU students and hundreds of thousands of alums, versus merely having capital I guess. Human capital. That's why ND apparently lacks the mission as you stated above. You should really tap out.

ND will not have its own network. Well, except for NBC, a nationwide OTA network that broadcasts all ND home games. Does BYU have that?

ND does not want nor has it considered having a BYUTV type setup. Why do you keep insisting that it does or should?

You seem to pretend that BYU pulls that off, alone. It does not. The entire Mormon Church does. The Catholic Church and ND are not like that, at all.

Apples/oranges.

You are right. I know nothing and care nothing at all for BYU, BYUTV, its network, its sports programs or the Mormon Church and its members.

Go start your own BYUTV thread. This is not one.

You just come off as some kind of jagoff, wanting to piss all over this on its first day of existence, for some ******* reason.

You mean ND sports fans. Well, duh....

ND has no interest in a BYUTV channel.

This is not what this is. This is a sports app on a television. Period.

So, you derail this thread with a stance that nobody at ND even considered, wants or desires.

ND is a school, separate from the Catholic Church and run by the Holy Cross Fathers, a separate Order of priests, not the Vatican.

The Vatican has no say at all regarding what happens at Notre Dame.

You conflate ND with BYU. Two different things, altogether.

BYU is run directly by the Mormon Church hierarchy and is directly part of that religion's mission.

Hence, the entire Mormon Church is invested in BYUTV.

ND is not that, at all. It is a private university, interested in promoting its football team, not on a worldwide "mission" to convert people to Catholicism.

The Roman Catholic Church itself has no interest in this, none.

So, your thoughts on BYUTV versus this app are pretty much irrelevant.

Yes, BYUTV sports is a TV app too. That's the comparison silly. Maybe I wasn't clear enough. It is a sports app on tv, for streaming. Its also a cable network, a mobile app, over the air tv in multiple nations, a radio network, a satellite tv network, and a one stop center for all things BYU Sports. That s what I am saying the ND app should be.

I was only comparing how another school makes their sports available to their fans. An app (a 15 year past due concept) to make up for a hodge podge of broadcasts on multiple other tv networks and streaming services is a shame for fans of such a wealthy school. They should be more organizer and wouldn't have to use ill conceived make shift app..

Clearly you don't know anything about BYUTV sports, or you would know it blows this app out of the water. Daily sports shows. Most of the university sports broadcast or streamed live, old classic content available on demand, including to watch offline.

Its a shame they give their fans a third rate experience with an app that isn't even working for everyone. I like the message that says "Come Back in 2036 for even more content". Lol.

Enjoy your app. Someday you'll have a network too. But that's the power of 80,000 plus BYU students and hundreds of thousands of alums, versus merely having capital I guess. Human capital. That's why ND apparently lacks the mission as you stated above. You should really tap out.

ND will not have its own network. Well, except for NBC. Does BYU have that?

ND does not want nor has it considered having a BYUTV type setup. Why do you keep insisting that it does or should?

You are right. I know nothing and care nothing at all for BYU, BYUTV, its network, its sports programs or the Mormon Church and its members.

Well, you keep asking me questions in every post, so I keep answering you.

ND doesn't own NBC lol. Sorry you are misinformed. You get about 20_hours a year of air time there lol. Not your network. Sorry.

It should have something more comprehensive than an app to fill in the gaps lacking in the multiple other network deals. Its poor service. That's why they should do better. This isn't 1970.

So why say you don't want something and then say you've never even seen it or know what it is?

If you don't want to discuss whether or not its a good app (its not) then feel free not to discuss it. That's what the thread is for.

Fighting Irish Tv, the new app. It sucks. Others do better. There's no debate. You're right.

No, not at all. It is limited to (for now) home football game replays, last year's game highlights, coaches' press conferences and some other original programming.

Lindsey Nelson on the play-by-play?

Lindsey Nelson attended high school in Columbia, Tennessee, just south of Nashville. He was a legend and I enjoyed his broadcasting work.

Personally, I can’t wait to watch Carolina beat ND on their app from 2008!

You have your opinion while ND and their fans are saying they don’t want that. No argument.
