PAC XII TV deal is almost done
Games would be on Fox (Fox, FX, and the regional channels) and the ESPN networks.

Sports Business Daily says it's about $225M per year, which would be about $17.3M per school per year (12 schools + the conference gets a share).

Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News, who has been reporting on it for months, says he's hearing the figure could be closer to $250M.

This might not include the rights to all games/all sports, the PAC XII still might try to create their own network as well.

I'm afraid it's going to be a rough opening season in the PAC XII for the Buffs. Well, they say adversity just makes you tougher. Embree and crew are going to face some adversity this year. I look forward to them pulling off some upsets and drawing attention to the program.

Here's my favorite line from that report: Comcast is not involved.

NYT says it's about $3B over 12 years, which would be $250M per year.

$21M per school per year if that figure is correct, which would be before any revenue a future PAC XII Network may generate.

It'll be interesting to see if we get much of this where I live. I get at least 3 SEC games a week, just by having local channels and espn. Through in USC and the Buffs once in awhile. I won't even miss the NFL

CU made about $9M or $10M in total conference revenue (TV $$$$ + bowl payouts) last year with the Big XII. They'll now make $20+M from just the TV contract.

Awesome! Well done Larry Scott, now lets get that Pac 12 network up and running.

Where are all those people who said CU should´ve joined the MWC now?

Rohirrim 05-05-2011 09:35 AM

I just hope some of the money goes to the football program.
