It's the future and honestly wouldn't change my viewing habits much.1) That's actually not a bad deal.
2) This is still much ado about nothing, until something moves from a "real" ESPN network down to +. If the AAC ends up being the trial balloon for this, god help us.
Basically, I'd rather be on ESPN+ than CBS Sports NetIt's the future and honestly wouldn't change my viewing habits much.
But, I guess it's easy for me to say.
I'm a millennial that lives outside of the CT TV market and I already watch all my sports via apps.
The most important thing for UConn and the conference is cold hard cash. If ESPN (and thus Disney) are going all in on this thing and want to make us the trial balloon (and are willing to pay a premium for the right to do so) than we might as well just hop on what is hopefully the rising tide of the future.
We're on a sinking ship at the moment.
You soccerheads are hilarious. You're completely wrong. From last year's numbers. Yes, I realize that Ronaldo to Juventus moves the needle, but how much?It gets better ratings than the AAC. Just saying.

The UCONN / USF rescheduled game got about 4X the Serie A average, and that was the worst-rated AAC game of the year.. College Football TV Ratings

You can’t compare ratings of ESPN or ESPN2 with Fox Soccer Channel or BeIn....but the whole point of this thread is Serie A, and more importantly, ESPN+. My point is that moving a non-entity to ESPN+ doesn't make this newsworthy.
I'm also not going to do the math, but i suspect that the average AAC rating is at least close to, if not surpasses, the EPL. It likely beats MLS and CL. So, I'm not sure why you take this so personally...
MLS TV ratings a concern given they account for just 6% of soccer TV viewing - World Soccer Talk
...which is even moreso why Serie A plus ESPN+ = a tree falling in the forest.You can’t compare ratings of ESPN or ESPN2 with Fox Soccer Channel or BeIn.
The network drives the rating as much as the event.
