    M. Basketball. Twelve Bulldog League Games to be Televised/Streamed

    A new article has been posted on www.latechsports.com:

    The Conference USA office announced on Wednesday that the Louisiana Tech men’s basketball team will have 12 league games either televised or streamed for the upcoming 2017-18 season.

    More...

    Discuss it here.

    Let me be the first to say this is great news. For as much grief as many have given C-USA over the TV deal, they've done a really good job with basketball exposure.

    Now we get to wait and see if we get deals done with local TV to carry those Stadium broadcasts.

    I'm also curious to see if our AD can get Tech's Learfield group to produce some of our games that weren't picked up: SFA, ULL, UTEP, Rice, USM.

    In the Past the weekday games have been on KTBS 3.3 (24 hour news). That would be good for OTA people (like me), Comcast (is it still on Channel 30 or somewhere), but not great for DirecTV/Dish folks.

    Like the satellite providers, U-verse also doesn't offer the KTBS digital subchannels either.

    But the previous deal was with ASN, which required either 6 or 8 PM weekday starts, and the 8 PM tips conflicted with KPXJ's 9 PM newscast. That conflict is why those 8 PM games were unfortunately moved to the KTBS 24-hr news subchannel. The weekend and weekday 6 PM starts were fine on KPXJ. Because Stadium is more flexible than ASN, the good news this year is that only 1 of our 10 FB/MBB games on Stadium (MBB at UTEP) will conflict with KPXJ's 9 PM news plus a 50% chance the C-USA Tourney Quarterfinal will conflict. Not bad at all. That's good news for many of us. Plus now there are also many streaming options that we didn't have before.

    I would expect some Stadium on Facebook games added later. Not sure if we'll get any.
