It's no misperception, it's the current reality. The overwhelming majority of sports bars nationwide have either regular old cable or directv. ESPN3 is therefore unavailable, so in the rare instances when our games were solely on there, you couldn't watch them at a sports bar. Sure you could watch at home on a computer if you have access to ESPN3.This is the misperception. For example, games on ESPN3, which is an over the top network are readily available on my TV and included in my cable providers guide. It is as easy as watching the main ESPN channel. ESPN+ is not available on my cable providers guide YET, but I’m sure it will be as as 30+ streaming channels are one click away right now on my TV.
Now the games that go to ESPN+ will be unavailable to all unless you pony up the $5 per month. The point Suzie was making about access is correct.
There should have been another question on the survey: even if you were willing to subscribe to ESPN+ and pay the extra $5 per month, would you do it for 12 months, or only from Sept. to March (7 months) for UCONN programming only?
