After Disney and Directv complete the next round of negotiations. When you have access to ESPN on line, then you will know a new deal is done.

They have access to all espn/abc games including gameplan. All in HD.

I don't watch it. They stay with one game too long. Not really an around the horn keep you up to date channel. More like sit on a game until a commercial then switch to another.

Asked if ESPN...[]was now pitching Watch ESPN separately, Bratches said no.

"This is very consistent with the cadence of the expiration of our existing deals. If you look out in a year's time, that's what we'll look to have, " he said, adding that "there has been an expression of interest by a number of affiliates to accelerate negotiations to get products like Watch ESPN, ESPN Buzzer Beater and ESPN Goal Line, things of that nature."

Bratches, who said there will be a broad group of people at Disney and ESPN Media Networks engaged in the pursuit, pointed to late summer early fall as a time frame for the next round of distribution deals.

"We're optimistic, and focused on trying to target things before the college football season," he said. "But if not, I gave you a year."

There needs to be a full college football Saturday red zone channel that would cost money but would be worth it. I doubt it's possible with TV contracts the way they are.

Really? For a channel that runs 13 days for a few hours? I have fios side by side with directv. If I had to rely strictly in fios, I would feel so cramped.

Never heard of this channel so I had to look it up. Looks like a part-time channel that only operates a few hours when there is a game on.

Are these games NOT available through any other means?
[Disclaimer] The definition of "soon" is based solely on DirecTV's interpretation of the word, and all similarities with dictionary definitions of the word "soon" are purely coincidental and should not be interpreted as a time frame that will come to pass within a reasonable amount of time.

Almost every game is available by other means. I think I've seen a couple of game I could not get otherwise (not counting espn3) but mostly they all are. It is all in HD which is not true for many espn gameplan games via other means.

The channel sounds great because we are all aware of the Red Zone channels but it is not like Red Zone at all. It is not true whip around coverage.

Those of you who want a taste of Goal Line, ESPNU will be playing it instead of the Texas A&M/ La Tech game.
