10 games on ESPN for BYU this year.

1 game on ESPN for Utah (courtesy of BYU).

ESPN + BYU TV > bottom dweller of pac12.

ESPN proves, once again, what team from the state of Utah is relevant.

Yes, this app is sweet. Very polished, perfectly functional, lots of archived games to watch. Free to download. I doesn't get any better!

South Jordan, UT

All BYU, All the time!.....Life is too good! Somebody pinch me?

Anaheim, CA

I don't see what the big deal is; Utah fans can download the ESPN 700 app and listen to Bill & Spence.

West Valley City, Utah

At the time, not as good as the PAC12, but much, much better than the MWC. Most importantly there is now freedom from the ridiculous limitations of the Mountain TV contract. BYU TV is unleashed! How long will Boise St. want to stay in MWC? My guess is that Utahns and BYU fans will be surprised that Utah is a contender right away.


"But that tells you how people want to view their content. Our goal is to provide it on as many different platforms that we can reasonably support. We're just getting started."

This is a great quote from the article. BYU wants to provide video content to as many fans as possible on as many platforms as possible. Thank you BYU and thank you Tom Holmoe!

On the other hand, what radio station is Utah's first game on? What AM channel?

"I don't see what the big deal is; Utah fans can download the ESPN 700 app and listen to Bill & Spence."
Really? With BYUtv's new app you can "WATCH" past games and BYUtv. While u fans can "listen" to a horrible local radio show. I don't know about you but I'll take the watching any time over listening to a horrible radio announcer.

Atlanta, GA

Great app. Already one of my favorites on my iPad.

The Utes on ESPN? Isn't there something is byu's contract that should prohibit this?

So, you don't care for Wrubell either?

Seriously, to quote comic book guy (Simpsons), "Most Obvious Headline ever"

Cougarnate: I think troytown was teasing.

(DN wouldn't let this go through the first time because your name is all caps! Funny).

Salt Lake City, UT

They will get much more people enjoying their site with an Android app.

BYU fans: this is a great thing you have going. Why do you need to celebrate ont these boards by trashing on the U?

If you're going to trash on your rival, at least get it right. This AM radio talk is stupid. Utah will be on TV this year, but Utah has to negotiate the deals for each home game. Away games are either controlled by Fox or piecemeal deals with other providers under contract with the home team (old Pac 10 system).

So it is expected to be a bit hectic. Our Pac 12 deal with Fox/ABC/ESPN doesn't start until next year.

The Pac 12 has been talking about making mobile apps that broadcast the Pac 12 games in partnership with Google or Apple. I'm glad to see BYU is going down this route, because it will prove to Larry Scott that mobile access will need to be a part of their plans.

Salt Lake City, UT

The move to independance is far better than the MWC, I am very happy TRUE BYU football fans will have better access to their team. As for the "Ute haters" like cougar independendence, I guess ignorance is bliss? To all Ute haters, Larry Scott has stated several times every Ute Game will be televised but due to the fact it is the last year of the old contract the platform will not be determined until a week or two in advance to provide maximum flexiility to the TV partners. This is a one year situation and well worth the price of admission to the Pac 12 (not to mention the 30 million a year thats on its way). To say anything differant is immature and a purposeful attempt to cloud the truth.
Fact is both teams are in better shape, why the constant comparison? Apples and oranges.

The Utes get the PAC-12, BCS access, millions of new revenue, more prestige, better recruits, legendary coaches, etc...

The Team in Provo gets a new app.


South Jordan, UT

@I Still Can't Say it

All that going for the UTES, and somehow there's still lack of interest!

Does KOOLAID have a new app.?

Orem, Utah

@ I Still Can't Say It,

And yet, here you are, still saying it by showing your interest in all things BYU.

Pretty obvious BYU's quite relevant.

Thank you for your patronage.

Provo, UT


I think BlueSaint was referring to the fact that Colorado has garnered more interest from being in the PAC12 than Utah...not only do they have more games on TV than the U, but their big game against USC is on ESPN2, as opposed to the U's, which has been relegated to Versus.

Nobody outside of Salt Lake even cares that they're in the PAC12...heck, it seems like the PAC12 doesn't even care that U got in.

I wonder if anyone outside Utah will even know that the Utes are in the PAC 12 since they won't be able to see any of the games.

The PAC's treating U very well, eh?

U get invited to the "big boy" table and get put in the high chair while Colorado gets a seat and second helpings.


Go Cougars!

I can't recall where I heard it, but "moderation in all things"

Has that piece of sage advice been discarded in the pursuit for notoriety & fame?
