I live outside of NYC and have been a subscriber to CPTV streaming video for several years. I have been told that UConn Women's Basketball is one of the highest rated show on CPTV. Some questions:

1. Is there a possibility that CPTV could sell the show to, perhaps, WLIW, or WNET, so the games could be viewed in the NYC metro area on regular TV? How about other New England PBS stations?

2. Do you think that the games would attract viewership?

3. Do you think that being on other Public TV stations would help the program?

4. Every year there is he promise of improved picture quality on CPTV streaming video. I haven't noticed. Will there be any truth to this claim for this year?

With all the AAU programs in NY and LI there is definitely a market. Girls BB in NY is a really big deal. How big that market is is something CPTV would have to look at.

I can't quite picture it happening, but you could try contacting CPTV to see about the possibility. Try "Ask Harriet."

The other alternative would be to try to get your local cable company to carry CPTV. Best of luck.

I expect the NY PBS channels would not allow this.
