    Default ASN Shutting Down?

    They've broadcast quite a few of our games.

    Yes. And now a crap conference TV deal just became worse. Less games on broadcast TV and more buffering on the internet. That's progress.

    ASN production quality was garbage. If Campus Insiders really does pick up all their games then this is a win for the viewers.

    Not sure going from TV to streaming can be considered a win.

    I'm not sure we can call ASN "TV". Hardly any networks picked up their games. Fans outside of their extremely small coverage areas were screwed. At least with streaming anyone with an Internet connection can watch it. And as I mentioned before, even when you could watch an ASN game, the production was so poor that you'd rather just turn it off and listen on the radio.

    Agree, now we can all watch the games online and on the app.

    I have no problem with streaming games online, especially if they're of the quality of the beIN broadcasts. Unfortunately, not everyone who'd be interested in watching our games will go through those lengths. I still think it's important to have a TV presence, especially in our local market.

    I think my biggest thing besides my own personal experiences with laggy/dropped connections which probably has more to do with my hardware than campus insiders setup is that the streaming stuff really hampers viewing parties. Not many places willing to go thru the hassle of that type of setup. At least with ASN broadcasts, I think most sports bars have extensive enough of a Direct TV or Dish sports packages that they got those broadcasts way out on the fringe sports channels and so places would be much more receptive to grabbing a remote and tuning to that channel than they would going thru all the gyrations necessary to pull down a streaming game.
