I'm glad I have COMCAST; at least for one reason; college football!
The only thing that is more worthless than a 24-hour sports channel is a 24-hour
news channel. Cable and satellite are outdated and overpriced delivery systems.
I'm glad that I cut the cord years ago. Using an Over-the-Air digital
antenna and streaming programs that I actually want to watch over the internet
is the wave of the future. This way I'm not paying for 500 channels that
I'll never watch and I can avoid these worthless channels (and worthless
"reality" television programs).
BYUtv is available for free over the air and on the basic tier of programming in
the homes of 60 million cable subscribers.
deja vuESPN + BYUtv > Fox Sport1 + Pac net
Is anyone at all surprised about this?
I'm with you Spokane, there's an easy solution to the problem...
Comcast. I'm extremely happy with my television options on Comcast.
I will admit that the Y has a great thing going with ESPN but when they lose all
those games while millions are watching that can't be good. Didn't the
Y almost lose their stud O Line recruit from Oregon because of the poor
performances on national TV last year?
FelizPlaying teams like Oklahoma, Texas, and Notre Dame tough in
nationally televised road games, even in sometimes losing efforts, gives the
program credibility that the Cougars can play with the big boys.
Soloman, It gives credibility that the Cougs can appear in games with big
boys, not that the cougs can compete because they really cant.Lonestar,"BYUtv is available for free over the air and on the basic
tier of programming in the homes of 60 million cable subscribers."Yes
its free, and about what its worth.
We should rent them are $50Million HD truck for what we get paid by ESPN,
$6,000,000 to $8,000,000 per games!
I was excited until you mentioned the Utes.
So much greed! The TV networks, cable, satellite/dish systems, the BCS, the
conferences, and the schools themselves have made a mockery of this great sport
in their mad dash for dollars.
"But if the parties involved can't get their act together by 6 p.m. MDT
on Aug. 27, 2013, collateral damage of the dispute will begin to pile up in a
major way, beginning with the Salt Lake and Cache valleys."I
don't know about Aug. 27, but if they can't get their act together by
6 p.m. MDT on Aug. 29, 2013 (when the game is actually played), then yes,
collateral damage of the dispute will begin to pile up in a major way.
Lol, it's like Utah never left the MWC with all the network/dish issues.
@lonestarruner - re BYU tv is in 60 million homes and freeSo is the
home shopping network and they draw more viewers. Yet neither channel has
anything to do with this article.I am excited for the new Fox
channel. I watch ESPN a lot but some of their routines are getting stale and it
will be nice to see a competitor offer additional games and hopefully push ESPN
to improve. This will eventually get worked out, hopefully in time for the U -
CO UteWhy would you, or any other Ute fan, be excited about a
channel you don't get?On the bright side, thanks to BYU, U will
have at least one game broadcast on ESPN.BYU 2013 Broadcast

With the type of season the Utes are head for, it's probably best that
nobody will be able to watch their games.
"We should rent them are $50Million HD truck for what we get paid by ESPN,
$6,000,000 to $8,000,000 per games!" Wow. ESPN pays BYU 36 to 64 million per
season to broadcast their home games? Maybe my Bruins should dump the Pac12 and

one who for the last couple of seasons appeared to have never left the WAC. "Lol"As for us alumni on the east coast, Comcast
carries the Pac-12 Network. Problem solved. Much to the chagrin of our jealous
little brothers down there in WACistan.
@goredNot me. Fail.LOL!
Maybe PBS is interested in the Battle of the Little Brothers.
Naval VetYour big brothers couldn't care less whether the
smattering of Utah fans in the nether reaches of the country can watch the Utes.
Hmmm, much talk, but the Pac-12 TV deal will give Utah about 20 million reasons
a year to like it. That is real money not the super secret, we won't talk
about it money that ESPN is paying BYU (allowing BYU fans to engage in their
favorite sport, gross exageration).Coverage of Pac-12 events on both
the Fox and ESPN family of networks, as well as Pac-12 Networks.Consistant coverage into key West Coast Markets (LA, the Bay, Seattle, etc.)
I really don't think that the BYU fans ragging on Utah's
TV deal believe what they are preaching. If they do they have not thought about
it much (engaging in their other favorite sport, throwing mud and hoping it
