RE: ND unveils "Fighting Irish TV"
If any Fighting Irish fans haven't seen the movie enough times already, Rudy is airing numerous times on BYUTV coming up soon. I've included the times and dates for you.

There's even a personal message from the real Rudy about the current tough times. Enjoy friends!

RE: ND unveils "Fighting Irish TV"
This "Fighting Irish TV" thing just shows how smart the folks at Notre Dame really are.
They are making money off of their product without having to bow down to ESPN, FOX or NBC.
Don't we all wish that our school had that inherent marketability.

One could say that it's also brilliant on the part of the ACC not to interfere with Notre Dame's ability to make money "on the side" as it becomes a welcoming open door to any other big ego school that also has their own network arrangement.

I doubt ND has the resources to make a real channel like BYU has, but it would bring in huge rewards if they found a way to make the investment.

ND may carry the inconsequential northeastern and much of the midwestern portions of the US, but BYU has Utah and parts of Hawaii and Guam!

They do have a strong reach into eastern Idaho too.

Yes, serious.

Notre Dame's TV station is the NBC affiliate for South Bend. They could get TV carriage on more systems than the Longhorn Network.

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, 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?

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

I know, but I really enjoyed his calls on those Sunday replays.
Ok, would you settle for Leslie Nielsen then?

Hope your administrators have thought this out. ND home games will be so exclusive no one will see them if you basically create a PPV platform.

Where does it indicate live football broadcasts? This stuff isn't a part of the current NBC deal IIRC

Yes, serious.

ND has a $14 billion endowment and makes enough money from football to endow a tv network.

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 definitely has more fans and resources, I am not arguing that at all. The endowment and viewership numbers speak for themselves.

But that 1.2 Billion is drastically misleading the vast majority of those are in Europe, Africa, and Latin America and do not really care about football at all, much less Notre Dame. The number of Irish Catholics in the US would be a better figure to go on, and it looks like that's around 20-30 million depending on who you ask. And even among that group there is likely more variation than there is among Mormons. Anecdotal data, but my entire family and I are Irish Catholic and I don't think anyone in my extended family is a Notre Dame fan.

EDIT: Lol, just realized this was from March.
