    Comcast is getting hammered for this decision too. Checked Twitter and they are getting crucified by upset customers. Would not surprise me if they reversed their decision. Too late though, people are already leaving.

    Bet they have shitty numbers early but its inevitable that they have to go this route. The main Espn channels will be included down the road. Will be interesting to see all the streaming networks 5-10 years from now.

    I was listening to the MVFC conference call and the conference isnt getting a penny from ESPN. At least before it was readily available. Now it has less value.

    Probably saving money by not paying fee to the rights holder in order to stream every game themselves. Probably would have to have a company Pluto (does the Big Sky games) do it for them.

    That's my guess.

    I don't think ESPN was making anything by streaming all the games for free on ESPN3 since they couldn't sell advertisement, but with ESPN+, their cash flow should be looking much better now.

    I haven't been paying attention and I just discovered I'm going to have to subscribe to this bullshit.

    Although I only have to do it Sept through December, it still pisses me off.

    So it's confirmed ESPN3 even for people with cable TV subscriptions won't be carrying NDSU football games going forward?

    Not confirmed, just reading the scuttlebutt so far. I'm going to the Cal Poly game so I'll figure it out for the next week if necessary.

    My guess is that Watch ESPN/ESPN3 will become ESPN+. Got to stop the money hemorrhaging in Bristol somehow is this is the right step for them.
