Just for clarification, this deal does not "replace" the existing ESPN contract that is in place for the Big 12. That is why only 1 football game is being broadcast each year. Texas will get their share of that contract as well.

That is a lot of money for a few basetball games, full coverage of other sports and basically football replays.

Funny, however, how they can claim that so many other games from other networks will be broadcast on a replay basis. Arent there any other networks out there like the mtn who say no, you cant rebroadcast our games?

As someone else already said this is different than BYU's network. ESPN is setting this up and owning it for Texas. BYU owns their own network and contracted with ESPN only for the FB and BB games.

It looks like things are going to continue to change a lot over the next few years.

Bluto - how will BYU TV be monetized as part of a church owned academic institution?
