Conference Broadcast rights are one of the worst ideas ever.


Was looking at P12N web page for options in my market. First thing they tell you is can’t purchase directly. Have to buy it in a bundle; satellite, cable, or streaming. It is bad enough that I pay to watch commercials but I have to buy a package including Long Horn network among others could care less about. Then need a package that includes 4-5 different networks to get all the games including ones that over the air, free. Except those cost even more if they come via a cable or dish, huh. There is no technical reason that cannot be purchased and streamed directly. Instead the broadcast rights are distributed requiring maximum subscriptions.

And they get to decide when the game starts.
