SEC TV Network will be available on most providers. ESPN3 will also carry a lot of games.

Why is there even a TigerVision? Why doesn't WAFB or Fox 44 air home games not picked up by major networks?

KNWS in Houston airs UH Football. KLAF airs Ragin' Cajun games.

What about CST? I'm "nervous as a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs" at the thought of not hearing Lyn Rollins on the mic.

I'm wondering the same thing for out of state Tiger fans. I live in Big 10 country in the Indianapolis area and I'm worried that Comcast won't pick up the SEC Network.

The only good thing about TV is how easy it to hack into the games free. But the poor picture, 2 camera coverage and high school announcers made it a questionable value even .

From the LSU Sports page story.

32. Can I pay to subscribe to the network online, Pay-Per-View or via ESPN3 if I can’t get it on TV?
No. The games will be exclusive to the Network and its digital extensions. However, once a subscriber has access to the Network via an affiliated provider, that subscriber will have access to the content on computers, tablets, mobile phones and other consumer devices like Xbox. The aim is to make this content available to fans anytime, anywhere.

A lot of the preliminary information seems contradictory. No telling what the final outcome really turns out to be. Here is some seemingly contradictory, if not confusing stuff from the LSU website:

14. Will each school have a block of time to program as they see fit?
This is a conference-wide network. The goal is to provide equitable exposure for each of the SEC member institutions. The Network will achieve this goal without each school having its own block of time to program.


22. Will there be fewer games available to me now that there is a Network?
The Network will provide more than 1,000 live events per year for SEC fans and sports fans across the country. These games will also be available online on a range of devices to allow for widespread access that is not currently available.

36. Right now, I see all my favorite team’s games online at the [SEC school athletics] site. Will I still be able to see all those games?
The Network is for media rights to all sports across our 14 member institutions. Any games produced by the schools will have an outlet, either the SEC Network or its digital extensions, where fans can watch.

So each school can't program a block of time but they can produce any game they want to and the SEC network or digital extension has to carry it? What does that mean? LSU bears the expense of cameras, announcers, etc. but ESPN gets the benefit of additional programming? Anyone seeing LSU willing to produce a game without making any additional revenue from it? Hahahahaha!

And let's see, 1000 live events per year. Sounds impressive ehh? But that's for 14 schools and what is it, 8 sports with all except football having both men and women's. Just take football. We have 12 regular season games scheduled. Let's say 5 or 6 of those will be on national tv, CBS or ESPN. What happens to the other 6 or 7?

TigerVision should have folded after they showed a top 10 LSU team lose to Miami (Ohio).




So it was the fault of TigerVison that Miami beat LSU?
You gotta love rantard logic.

I don't understand all the hate for TigerVision.

The quality was the same as an ESPN2 telecast.

TigerVision is a subsidiary of ESPN (ESPN Gameplan picked up TigerVision in 2004.)

Besides, $34.50 was nothing for an OTL Baller.
