    Cyclone Television Network?

    Under Dan Beebe's New Big XII Plan, “Schools would also be able to explore their own distribution platforms, including networks.”

    What are the odds of a new Cyclone Television Network (CTN) – 24/7 Cyclones – 70 cents of my current Mediacom bill goes to subsidize the Big Ten.

    What are your thoughts on a Cyclone Television Network?

    Re: Cyclone Television Network?

    I really dont know how you can make it work. ISU has had trouble keeping a radio station in Des Moines to carry ISU games in the past.

    Re: Cyclone Television Network?

    A lot of options you could consider with that-

    Cyclone TV network
    -air all cyclone stuff
    -alternately, add iowa high school stuff to fill airtime, and build demand across the state

    How about a regional network? If Texas wants no part in a conference network, what about a few schools putting one together? Us, KU, KSU, MU?

    Re: Cyclone Television Network?

    It would all depend on mediacom agreeing I'm guessing? I don't know how they'd work with dish/directv.

    Re: Cyclone Television Network?

    I think Cyclones.com is about as close as a network as we are going to get, maybe it will free them up though to air big 12 games if there is no other carriage, same thing with non-conference games vs. not being able to be aired due to exclusivity.

    Re: Cyclone Television Network?

    I'd like to see what has been done in this regard thus far, and if it's even possible. Money helps, let's re-invest.

    Re: Cyclone Television Network?

    As we talked in another thread get ISU/KU/KSU/MU to make a network together and also carry some high school sports from the three states as fillers.

    It wouldnt be a huge money machine but it would work.

    Re: Cyclone Television Network?

    I don't think anything would ever get on to TV, but I think you expand internet broadcasts and improve the quality.

    I would think this could be an option as well, let TU have their own network, and some type of arrangement between amongst the other schools.

    Re: Cyclone Television Network?

    I don't care if it even breaks even (okay, I'd like to make money off it), but getting the product out in the midwest would be awesome.

    Would give another leg up on regional recruiting when compared to non-bcs teams.

    I have a feeling at very least we'd be able to get any fb games that somehow didnt get on tv onto something like mediacom 22...

    How would the average citizen be able to differentiate our football program from the featured HS programs?

    Re: Cyclone Television Network?

    Can we leverage this portion of the Conference TV Stipulations to lure a school like Notre Dame? they could have their Cake and Eat it too....like Texas!
