New MW TV Contract Details -CBS & Fox Sports, $270m over 6 Years

#1 Post by shoichikun808 » Mon Dec 16, 2019 3:21 pm

Per non-public telecast

Important (Regarding Spectrum deal)

Hawaii will maintain local tv rights and give 4 games to MWC inventory.

Hawaii will maintain its Tier 3 rights + Difference deal that we agreed to upon joining the conference. This will however be limited to 80% of the difference (due to FB-only membership)

Rest of the MW TV deal news:

from the teleconference (we are ditching ESPN it seems)

-FOX and CBS will carry a few Football & Basketball games on their primary channels

-FOX or FS1 will carry the MWCCG

-Primary Provider is CBS

-23 Games on FS1

-CBS has primary rights to Boise's away games.

- $270m over 6 years (equates to $3.75m evenly distributed yearly to 12 members. No details on distribution method beyond that)

-No restriction on late games

-more games to be streamed on cbs sports network or shown on CBS-All Access

-no games will start later than 8pm mountain

-Will be the last tv agreement that Boise will have separate negotiated deal for Boise's home games

-Tier 3 rights are still to be sold

Per Boise reporter seems it wasn’t finalized. https://twitter.com/ktvbsportsguy/status/1206788798912159744 https://www.sportsbusinessdaily.com/SB- ... 12/16.aspx

Fox Sports has reached an agreement with the Mountain West to carry a package of the conference’s football and basketball games that formerly was held by ESPN. Separately, CBS Sports Network renewed its package of MWC games. My colleague Michael Smith and I are told that the Fox and CBS deals combined will be worth about $35 million annually -- around $20 million from CBS and $15 million from Fox. The length of the deals is not clear yet, but MWC Commissioner Craig Thompson has said that he wanted shorter terms than the 10-year deals the MWC had previously. The games in the Fox package are expected to run primarily on FS1.

The new Fox and CBS contracts, which will go into effect July 1, provide the conference’s 10 schools -- not including Hawaii and Boise State, which have separate arrangements -- with a significant revenue lift. Under the old contracts, those 10 schools made $1.1 million per year, per school. That per-school figure should jump to about $3 million or more. The league’s media deals are complicated because Boise State’s home games are negotiated separately from the rest of the conference. In the previous arrangement, Boise was paid a $1.8 million annual bonus, a deal negotiated in 2012 when the school jumped to the Big East and then quickly returned. Thompson has said that Boise will continue to receive a bonus above what other MWC schools get as an incentive to keep the Broncos in the league. Hawaii also has a separate deal, as it is a football-only member of the MWC.

My recollection is that we get to share in the MWV TV deal if all the other schools get more than our Spectrum deal. Our Spectrum deal is about $2.5M for 2020. So if the other schools get say $3M through the MWC deal, then we would get the difference between what they get and what we get from the Spectrum deal or about $500K.

There might be a potential problem with this since Fox and CBS will broadcast multiple games on tv. So, if UH is on the road or at home and Fox and CBS does the broadcast, the area that receives the broadcast depends on how many viewers will be tuned in.

In California where Hawaii recruits a lot or even Texas where a few recruits are coming from, I don't know if other games will preempt the Hawaii game if Hawaii were playing say, SDSU or SJSU. ESPN, though has three channels to broadcast the game. The major networks would want to broadcast the game in the area that brings in the most viewership.

More exposure and kala will help Rolo improve the level of recruiting and that should push the momentum of creating a winning tradition. #WarriorWay

If Spectrum doesn't get good UH homes games to televise on PPV, look for them to schedule marque HS games to compete with UH home games

BTW "Premature Leak" sounds like something that leads to a surprise. Some are elated, for others it's an "Oh S%$+" moment

Bowl games are ESPN products for the most part. This is regarding the regular season stuff.

Anything that isn't a bowl game (or likely tourney game for the MW non-fb side) will be on FOX/CBS networks including the MW Championship game.
