Probably from the standpoint that Texas is more important to CU.
Also, while it probably costs each school the same amount of revenue, CU is probably in greater need of the additional revenue than several of the other programs. We could use an extra $3 million, or so, a helluva lot more than the Stanford's and Oregon's of the world.
Our TV coverage this year
CSU - FS1
Umass - ESPN3
ASU - ESPNU
Hawaii - Pac12
Cal - Pac12
OSU - Pac12
USC - Pac12
UCLA - Pac12
UW - Pac12
Arizona - Pac12
Oregon - Pac12
Utah - Pac12
None of the other networks picked us up. We were passed too often for games for games on ESPN networks and Fox. We have exposure, but do people watch games games on the Big10 network? I don't think I tuned into it all year and I pay for the sports package.
Order of channels I watch when the Buffs aren't playing:
ESPN, ESPN2, ABC/CBS, FS1, Fox, Pac12
Recruits not being able to tune into the Pac12 network sucks. It'd be nice if the school was able to give out accts to stream the Pac12 when we are on there, which is apparently every week. We used to be on FCS a lot in the past though. That channel had worse coverage and we were able to recruit better (still required a sports package).
A lot of schools are more important than CU. In terms of football. Anyone who wants to ski, get and engineering or physics degree, or just wants to party knows about CU.
In terns of football, Mike Mac needs to used that folksy charm and get the players he can. If he can at some point turn this thing and start winning that gets him into more living rooms.

If you win your on the major networks more. So, under the old arrangement with the B12 about 1/4 of our games probably wouldn't have been broadcast at all. With the P12 Network us fans get every game. Ive watched a lot of hoops games on one of the pirated streams as well.
We used to have a top-5 tv time. (Pretty sure we were number 3 behind Texas and ND)

The answer is "yes", but it's not an excuse for sucking, either.
glass half empty - maybe it's not hurting us by these future recruits watching us lose?
on a side note, these two clowns running Pac12 network and Directv, need to get their **** together and work out a deal. Living in the 21st century, everything should be available at anytime.
It hurts us more that we suck and are never on normal channels. Being stuck on PAC 12 MTN is not great. Even if you have access to the channel, I don't think many seek to turn it on. This is our own fault though, not the PAC's.
agree. Have to get back on those major networks and night espn games, and not because we are playing usc or oregon
What is hurting us is not getting onto the major networks with must see games. Very few national fans watch games on the secondary networks. CU was on versus Ohio State vs Michigan. Which game do you think football fans want to watch.
Unless you can get onto a nationally or regionally televised game you are not going to attract many viewers outside the fan base of the two schools. The direct tv tie in is not going to change that much.
PAC needs to roll out some kind of streaming package linked to the individual teams, not the providers. I'd be willing to pay quite a bit for this.
I have cut the chord, and love the extra money I've got in my pocket every month. If anything, DirectTV not being on board helps get me to the game to support the Buffs in person. I'd rather spend on tickets, than pay exhorbitant amounts to the middlemen in pay TV provision.
During the 90s we were the second most broadcast team, behind only ND.
There were reasons for that: we were both entertaining and very, very good, plus most of the "GOATs" were either down or were losing to us.
Also, McCartney scheduled like a crazy person. While other Top 10 programs were playing Midwestern Women's Finishing School for the Blind & Incontinent, CU was playing a ranked non-conference opponent.
They sort-of have that for non-us viewers for $15 per month. http://pac-12.com/content/pac-12-networks-international-youtube
You would need to VPN in from a non-US IP address, and you need to pay via an account with a mailing address in an approved country. That is kind of a chore just to watch CU, but there are services you can use for the billing and VPN. Appears to only be a national feed, though.
