This just in...

Good news! Add 24 million potential subscribers from the total NCTC deal!

But wait, if we averaged them across 50 states, that would only be about 3 million for CA, AZ, OR, UT, CO and WA. And remember, there's hardly a 'rural' contingency in any of these states.

Let me know when you find a Ute fan in 'rural' America! LOL

Do you have any actual Nielsen-rating numbers to back up your boast that "UofU games pulled bigger audiences" than BYU games, or are you just blowing smoke?

BYUtv partnered with Fox to televise the BYU at Oregon State game. It drew an impressive rating in Utah and was the second-most watched TV program during the weekend behind only the Cowboys-Patriots NFL game. By agreement with Fox, BYU is restricted from releasing the rating numbers.

It is interesting that Utah at BYU was BYU's LOWEST rated game in September. So much for Utah's "draw".


Why didn't you post the Utah numbers in the first place?

Were can I find BYU TV on my local cable provider to watch reruns of the 54-10 thrashing last year?
Wait a minute, I have to pay extra to watch BYU TV here. No thanks, I already pay to watch ESPN.

And BYU is 6-9 all time against San Jose St!

Oh boy! That game is going to generate some real ratings this season.
