Half of what the AAC will be getting plus we are on ESPN which is a better brand.

CBS Sports Net is one of the two channels and has been carrying many of our MBB games so I’m glad I get it with Xfinity cable. I have never been able to figure out the Fox Sports regional channels of which there are many. Sometimes yes, sometimes no.

This deal is with Fox and FS1, both of which are national.

anyone wanna wager on the quantity of MWC games that air nationally on CBS or Fox? I think any number above "zero" is a highly optimistic guess.

according to that article, CBS is required to air at least 3 on CBS. They get Boise road conf games and Fox gets Boise home games.

Boise's still getting more money than everyone else. And I'd imagine will be involved in all of those 3. Supposedly this is the last deal where Boise gets a bigger share of the TV contract.

I don't know about y'all but I kinda think the "shine" has worn off of Boise. Agree?

I was wondering if there is an actual demand at the national level to watch a Boise game

The blue field is reason enough for me to avoid watching. Gives me seizures.

as far as I can tell after comparing the article's text with the headline of this original post....new deal -- yes; rich deal? no.

And Fox is airing the championship game so now we're up to 4.
