    This NBC Sports Network is pretty nice...

    but looks like it could use some live sports content. I think they could be a influence in the new Big 12 tv contract. I mean FSN does a great job with Big 12 games and has the Big 12 Showcase and coaches shows but signing with NBC could really showcase the Big 12 and they would be able to provide even more Big 12 content such as basketball and the olympic sports. It will be interesting with them as a real player.

    They're dying to get some live sports content. The reason the PAC got their $3 billion contract was because NBC pushed ESPN/ABC and Fox to the max. Those two had to partner up in order to keep NBC out of the marketplace.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. NBC would love to lock up the Big 12 tier one in addition to Notre Dame. I think NBC would love it even more if the two partnered up in some way so they could hold the rights to home and away Notre Dame big time games in addition to some of the best football in the nation.

    I would love for the Big 12 to be on NBC.

    NBC: Big 12

    NBC is wanting to be a player on the college football scene.

    A Big 12/NBC deal wouldn't be bad at all. They could have a Big 12 Game of the Week in primetime when Notre Dame is at home and has the 2:30 slot. When ND is on the road they could have a day or night game on NBC. PLus they could run multiple games on NBC Sports Network.

    More likely a scheduling arrangement gets set up so that notre dame plays a certain number of B12 opponents every year.

    If NBC gets the first tier deal, could they put games on NBCsports, or would that encroach on the fox deal? If not, would this affect how NBC would negotiate?

    If they get 1st Tier they can put the game of the week wherever they want. Either on NBC flagship or their NBC-Universal sports network.

    They could only do NBC proper (OTA). Fox has the exclusive cable rights. The only way for NBC to put something on NBCSN (cable) is for them to make an agreement with Fox -- which would probably have to include Fox being able to bump a game from FX to Fox proper (OTA).

    That's just for football.

    For men's basketball, ESPN/ABC has two prongs (national-ESPN/2/U and regional-Big12Net) of the Big 12's contract, which amounts to 95 games plus the league tourney. If NBC wants to jump in with both feet and package a hoops bid with football, they could put basketball on both OTA and cable.

    Fox has the exclusive cable rights? Then how are our games on ESPN? Its cable. As far as i knew it was the other way around. ESPN\ABC has exclusive OTA right, but espn can do cable as well (given they are a cable net). Fox has to make a deal with ESPN to get something up to Fox proper.

    With the new PAC/B1G joint schedule, its gonna be interesting if MU, MSU, Purdue still schedule ND. I think Northwestern is also renewing their rivalry with ND soon.
    That has to help the B12's chances with ND.

    Fox has sublicensed or sold 5-6 football games to ESPN the past couple of years because they didn't have enough windows to show them all. Used to be the TBS deal, then Versus.

    The new Fox deal starting next fall will likely wipe that out, as Fox will have rights to 40 games instead of 30 (24 + the 6 sublicensed). Add the 18 that ABC gets, and the 10 that go to the schools (one each), and that's 68 TV windows. Since not all schools have 7 or 8 home games every season, that should cover every home game.

    Q. Who owns the telecast rights for Big 12 football?
    A. ABC owns the national over-the-air network rights to Big 12 football through the 2015 season. Fox Sports Net (FSN) controls the cable distribution of games and will place games on Fox Sports Net outlets, Fox College Sports (FCS), FX and sublicense games to ESPN.

    Q. The Big 12 recently announced a new, long-term television contract with Fox Sports. How will that impact football television for 2011?
    A. The only significant change will be that in addition to games on Fox Sports Net, FX will begin televising college football in 2011. The majority of contractual obligations between the Big 12 and Fox (including the telecast of all football games), will not go into effect until the 2012 season.

    Q. What does owning the rights entail?
    A. ABC has the right to televise up to 18 home games involving Big 12 teams. FSN has the rights televise 24 games. FSN has traditionally sub-licensed between four and six of the 24 games to another national cable carrier (TBS from 2003-2006 and ESPN from 2007-2011). Jointly, the Big 12 and FSN agreed to permit and additional six games of FSN platforms. This means that there will be approximately 18 regular-season games on network (ABC) television and 30 games on cable (FSN, FX, FCS, ESPN/ESPN2). Games not select for telecast on ABC, FSN, FX or ESPN/2 may be available for telecast by institutions (pay-per-view, streaming, Fox College Sports (FCS) or other methods by member institutions outside of exclusive windows). FSN has the right of first refusal on these telecast opportunities.
