Default Televised Games

In Spurrier's tenure here I feel like 95% of our games were televised. Aside from the in-state games vs CCU, WU, etc (PPV games)..

With the drop off of last two years, do you think there's a chance some of our games won't be televised?

The SEC network addition is huge. I know there's always the CBS Sports channel, Fox Sports, and ESPN U as well for games that aren't as popular.

Just wondering what you all thought.

All of them will be "televised" in some form or fashion.

I doubt we see much of a change. Being on TV is almost a guarantee these days.

Does PPV still exist for college football? I think with the option of streaming nowadays (ESPN3, SECN+) all of our games will be televised. The only game of ours that I could see being available only via the streaming format this year will be UMASS.

Yes. Living out west there are many out of region games that are PPV.

But almost all of those games are also on ESPN3. I can easily wirelessly stream from my computer to my TV so why pay $25 to watch a PPV game when I can get it for free?

Schools used to be able to use one game a year to be only PPV and keep that revenue. Usually, it was a bad game. When the SECN came on, the schools had to give them up to increase inventory for the new network. These are now streamed online as well. All game should be able to be seen in one form or another without having to rely solely on PPV as long as you subscribe to the SECN.

With SECN, all games are capable of being watched somehow. For example, the Citadel game last year was on SEC alternative channel; my TV did not offer SECN Alt, but I was able to stream it from my laptop. It was a waste of three hours, but that's another story.

I can't remember the last time we had a game on PPV. 2009?

Yep, that's how I view it anyway. If Vanderbilt can be televised regardless of win loss record, than so can we.

We can be sure that none of our games will be on CBS. Every game will be on some sort of cable channel.

Sec network eliminated ppv. All football games are on tv. An SEC TV deal began in 2009 with espn that televised all conference games. That year began the "one game a year on ppv deal". Prior to 2009 some conference games were only available on PPV. Your team had to be in a good matchup to make the cut for tv. For example In 2008 our games against Arkansas and Ole miss were PPV only. The 70-10 slaughter against Coastal Carolina in 2013 was the laSt PPV game the school played

It's amazing to see the day that all the games are on tv. Coming from when I was a kid if I didn't get to go to the game with my dad, the radio was usually my only option.

Nevertheless, when I was a kid we packed the stands whether the game was against Alabama or Furman

ESPN App is free which gets you SEC network and SEC +
All games will be available here if not on one of the more traditional channels.

In 2013 - our third 11-2 year - we did not get one game on CBS, which I thought was strange.

The one thing I don't like about CBS is that they don't mix it up often. It always seems to be Bama, LSU, Florida, or Georgia almost every week on CBS

well not really you must sign into your ISP mine is TWC if I try and watch the games on my PC it asks me to sign into my ISP before it will allow me to stream any SEC network content. So yes ESPN is free but SEC network is not..... you must be a subscriber to a cable/sat network that provides the SEC network. At least this is how it is for me.

Was gonna say I thought the Coastal game a few years ago was PPV. I remember getting it through ESPN3 on the computer but there was no pause/rewind/ff capability which kinda stunk. Good thing it was the rout it was

Guessing we'll be on TV most every game, besides maybe an FCS matchup. Might play at noon a lot until we improve, but on TV nonetheless.
