Conference USA should look at a streaming option if it is offered to them. Right now, the league is so razor-thin. They have to be really smart and strategic in how they expand and get an identity for their league.

They have to have some games on TV. Even if it’s just CBS Sports Network. If they go online exclusive, only current fans will watch games. Casuals will never watch them on Apple TV+ or whatever.

CBS Sports Network needs to work on their availability if they want to be seen as a viable exposure network. They are only on the more expensive packages from most every TV and streaming provider. I can pay $90 a month on a promo from DirecTV to get it, or I can pay AppleTV $5. I get that DirecTV has a lot more content in that $90, but the majority of it is crap I don't want or need. Traditional TV service is dying, whoever C-USA's next partner is, I hope they understand that.

But DoubleRSU is right. CUSA 4.0 can't expect much money right out of the gate but exposure is important. CBSSN is in enough homes that football fans can find it.

Stadium has an OTA channel across the entire country and they also stream their content. If CUSA could work out a deal with Stadium similar to how ESPN+ works their deals, then I think it would work.

I think Stadium could work, but I think they need to work on their affiliate network. Right now they are relegated to subchannel's in most markets. Many don't even broadcast in HD. If they can help their affiliates broadcast in HD and add more affiliates in more markets then I think a Nationwide OTA+Streaming partner would be great for both die hard and casual fans.

Unless Apple is going to overpay for CUSA rights, they need to be on regular TV. At least you can get a few viewers during halftime or commercial dbreaks flipping over to a CUSA game for a few minutes. Maybe they will keep it on or take interest in a team or player. Those cable/satellite viewers will never see it if it’s on Apple TV or CUSA TV.

RE: CUSA to have new TV Deal?
So what's their best bet?

If they go all in with ESPN they are going to be on ESPN+ with maybe a handful of games on linear TV?

CBSSN would probably take a package like they do now but that limits your ESPN coverage to ESPN+.

Yup

Exposure over $$$

They'd be lucky to each get $500K each so each team ought to play 3 guaranteed games and get exposure on a streaming channel.

Hopefully Fox or CBS is open to competing with ESPN when it comes to midweek slots.

That might work too...not sure Bally would want to mess with it though.

Maybe FS1 or FS2?

RE: CUSA to have new TV Deal?
In all seriousness, I always thought C-USA on USA Network made a lot of sense. So they need a deal with NBC for that.

Maybe USA would take 10 games. A few more go to Peacock.

The rest go to ESPN+

FS2 has a bunch of time to fill. They put a few MWC games on there last season. I think that was the first live college football on FS2.

Yup...FS2 would be a no brainer.

Give them a Saturday slot throughout the season.

Maybe look at mid week games too?

RE: CUSA to have new TV Deal?
If CUSA had any kind of competent leadership they'd rework CUSA.tv and establish an A/V/telecom equipment list standard that each school must adhere to. (Certain model cameras/mics/certain # of PbP/color analysts etc.). And require each school to operate it entirely in-house (or outsource at the school's expense)...and give each school the option to sell the streams for their own revenue. Kinda like how BYU has their own stream platform (BYU-TV). Let each school make their own revenue from streaming sales/subscriptions etc. If someone wants to pick up a certain home team's stream, they'd have the signal to "lease" out to whatever larger network wanted the game. That's essentially what's going on w/ ESPN+. It's produced entirely in-house and the "signal" is pretty much handed off to ESPN and they slap their logos on the picture.

Have a LaTechSports.TV, or WKUSports.TV, or MTSUSPorts.TV....if ESPN or CBSSN or Gas Station TV wants to pick up the WKU @ La Tech Basketball game...then the network would negotiate w/ La Tech and make a deal to "carry" it. Do that for any sport/game.
