Mountain West Get New TV Rights Deals

Would the Big West take Boise back, by themselves?  Yes.  And the WAC would do so as well. 

As to your second question: no.  Besides the UCSD factor, the Aztecs' increased payday also reduces their incentive for leaving the Mountain West. 

I’m curious why you say that.  Boise would significantly add travel costs and doesn’t really play any of the sports the Big West is good at or might want to sponsor as a conference.   

For example, the big west has UCSB, Long Beach State, UC Davis, UCI and UCSD sponsoring men’s Water Polo.  If Boise added a 6th they might be valuable but they don’t.  Nor do they have men’s Volleyball.

I don’t get all the vitriol for CBS sports unless it’s not a part of your TV package. When I watch games on TV it’s to watch the game, not listen to the announcers who are all blowhards on most channels. My picture and camera coverage of the game have been fine. So what’s the problem?

Conferences are looking for ways to make more $$$.

I highly doubt Boise brings more value, eyeballs or revenue to the Pac, XII, or AAC. Its a very small tv market.

Boise is ranked as the # 106 tv market with 270,000 tv homes.San Diego is ranked as the #28 market with just under a million tv homes.

Who do you think is getting the invite ?

Being in a bigger TV market isn't enough to make SDSU attractive. Not unless SDSU actually takes advantage of that market. SDSU doesn't sell as many tickets.

It's a moot point because Boise has a sweet deal here.  But if they ever wanted out, they will have no issue finding a different home.  Their hoops are decent enough to at least add depth.

I figure Boise would be willing to offer travel subsidies again, albeit at a much reduced rate. 

As for other sports mix, they have volleyball - Boise was division champs in I think '97 - and will revive baseball in 2020.

The complaints I've seen here - valid ones, I might add - are that on occasion the previous tv game runs longer than expected or goes into OT and CBS Sports sticks with that one rather than go right to the scheduled MW game.  Whereas ESPN can shuffle their contests to ESPN2/U/News, CBS Sports does not have that option.  So you could miss a bit of the action.

Pacific Beach, Mission Beach, Del Mar, Oceanside, Imperial Beach.  That's just within San Diego County.

La Jolla, Encinitas, Carlsbad, Ocean Beach.

The list just goes on and on.

Quite a few of the better teams/games are on that channel a lot.  Only a MW fan would tune in to watch it.  Most people don't even know that channel exists.  The picture quality isn't as good.  Their streaming options suck, although maybe getting better.  The overlap in games ending/starting.  More expensive to get that channel on most packages.

They must have just changed that recently to where you can stream games.  I still think the MW should have taken less to gotten off that channel.  

So the MW's best games besides Boise home games and Hawaii home games will still be invisible on an obscure channel correct?  I'm assuming CBS Sports gets 1st choice of games since they pay more money?  

Do 3rd tier games still go to the MWCDN?  Root?  Back to schools?  I doubt CBS and Fox take all the inventory

I thought I read that if the new contract was higher than 2.3 million the entire Hawaii contract would switch over to the MWC TV contract. Is this true or not? Also does it actually say in the contract that there will be NO production costs for us or is this just something we assumed?

In any case it may be lower than the AAC but none of us really assumed we would get 7 million. I hate to say it but I must give credit where it is due, congrats to Hair. He did better than I thought he would.

I am disappointed the contract does not include ESPN plus. I really like that choice and it only costs $4.99 per month so it is cheap and good. None the less it is clearly an improvement over our current status.

The SBJ didnt say anything about 'signed'.  Only that there was an agreement.  So the denials are denials for stuff not being reported.  Could mean there is not yet a deal, or it means there is but talks continue on the details.

It's the first thing you mentioned. Not part of standard packages, always an add on.

Exactly!

 FS, NBCSN are on the standard packages in vast majority of cases for cable and satellite.


Via OTT platforms they are not available at all (Sling) or on the higher tiers (ATT Now)

The original thought was providing Boise the extra dollars would be recouped by Access Bowl money.  Unfortunately, Boise has not been able to deliver the Access Bowl except on one occasion. 

Bsu sells its home games separately and provides programs like Fresno free money every year. You complaining about bsu not writing Fresno an ever bigger check isn’t surprising being from California and all.

This almost seems like it could be a ploy by the MWC to have information inaccurately leaked to try and bring back other negotiating parties back to the table (such as ESPN).  If the MWC has to resort to these tactics to drum up interest and improve bargaining position, we are all in a lot of trouble.
