I doubt it folds. Give that you can buy one-day passes and the fact that sports bars are a thing that exist in this country, there will be demand for the product.

I think his point if it olds is due to the sec Channel. I don't think there will be any sec games in. Game plan starting next year so the number if games dwindles to almost nothing.

I woulda be surprised if deals with FOX and CBS sports channels could get the rest if the games and all game plan games could end up on national channels.

There will still be a few games, especially early in the season, that are PPV in-market only. I would think that "Game Plan" would stick around at least as a way to distribute those nationally.

Right, with every SEC home game being a nationally televised game next year, they won't be found on GP. So ESPN is left with very little compelling programming for this package resulting in minimal demand. This means the cost to produce this package may be higher than the revenue generated which is why I can see GP folding.

These conferences have some long standing contracts with ESPN, so FOX and CBS are technically out (except for that whole possible broken contract thing if they do kill GP).

SEC Network is nationwide on MSG.

Big East Network is nationwide on MASN. 

 

(Both in HD with the sports pack)

 

 

 

MSG and MASN are available nationwide for games that are part of ESPN Gameplan, even if you don't subscribe to GP?

Not sure what the marginal cost of producing gameplan is. They don't do gameplan only games. All they do is repackage them. The cost is probably very small.

Yes, if you have the Sportspack. The SEC Network on RSNs is not blacked out for me and I have the SEC Network on 2 local channels. MASN is a local RSN to me, so i can't accurately comment if the Big East Network is nationwide or not on MASN.

Most of the game plan games are on the Sports Pack. I know not all, but most are. Who wants to pay extra to watch Johnny football be incredible in SD? All of the games are "Free" online, in HD, or on RSNs also in HD. Explain the value. 

Fixed it for you.

He should be banned from football. Another example of douchy rich oil families getting their way. It sickens me that he's on the field taunting other players by signing in the air, etc. He got paid, we all know it. It's against the rules but he gets his way.

The "site" is agnostic as to what you post. Occasionally a responder to a post will change some words you originally wrote for effect.
