07/24/2008 - 9:49am And the advantage to this is what? So in essence, this is not so much a partnership between the Big East and Comcast as a partnership between Rutgers and SNY, correct? Will FSNY be available (on expanded basic or saturated digital cable) in markets like Louisville, Morgantown, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Syracuse and Miami? If the answer is "No", then why would you even broach the question if the Big Ten should have done the same thing? Leaving aside the little detail of "money" what is the coverage? You seem to assume that Comcast is going to place this programming outside of the immediate Manhattan market, i don't see that impression anywhere in the Big East press release.So if I am a fan of South Florida and live in the Pittsburgh area, will I get to see USF @ Rutgers on my basic cable system (and in HD?) I get that this is a good deal for the Rutgers fan living in Jersey/Southern New York State, but outside of there?? To answer your question about the Big Ten, the answer is no. The Big Ten got a 10 year deal from Comcast that more than makes up (financially) for sitting out for a year. This is the future of television/conference broadcasting and the SEC details with ESPN about killing off Raycom regional telecasts proves the point.
