    UNLV game on TV

    I don't know if it's been mentioned, but it looks like the UNLV game will be broadcast on DirecTV by the MTN network. DirecTV will start broadcasting this network on Sept. 1.

    Well I hope Mediacom can get this on their connections channel.

    I don't, I think the Big 10 network was a major disappointment in their 1st year and being they are lacking in sponsors and advertisers I am curious how long they can keep it going. The Big 12 just needs to get a better deal the the major networks because even with the Big 10 Network there were still plenty Big 10 games on the major networks.

    Re: UNLV game on TV

    I personally like the Big 10 channel. I find myself watching it quite often.

    I would love for the Big 12 to put together something like that.

    The B10N will not go under, even though I am certain that they are losing money faster than the Denver Mint can print it. They are backed by Fox, I believe.

    I think the Big 12 will eventually do the same thing as the Big 10, only they'll do it better because they'll have learned from the Big 10 Network's mistakes.

    Re: UNLV game on TV

    That's a sweet deal for fans when there are nonconference games like this. Without a dedicated MWC network, there's no chance this game would have been on TV. I think the Big 12, and most other conferences, will have their own network in the next 3-5 years. If it's done right it can make money and also give more exposure both locally and nationally for all the teams in the conference.

    Re: UNLV game on TV

    Someday they will figure out the right way to do PPV for all the football and basketball games. There should be a network that will cover every single team in the country, that way one company(NCAA maybe) will make money off all the teams, not just the top 25. Otherwise it wont be any better than it is now.

    Then you buy the Iowa State package, and even though it wont make as much money as the USC or Michigan package, it all goes into one main pot of money for them.

    But this wont happen til they work out broadcasting rights, which the NCAA should own anyway, and could do with what they want.

    I plan to be there but if it's on tv, I will tivo it also. That way if there's a play or drive I want to see again, or if I just want to re-watch the victory and see how the UNLV stadium looks in cardinal and gold, I can watch it later.
