400,000 watched at least part of this game.......you will not get those numbers on espnu or even espn2.

Below are TV ratings for 2015 on a couple Thursday nights and according to the article about the ODU VS Middle game...400,000 eyes watched it or parts of it. If someone wants to do the research I'm fairly sure 2016 numbers wouldn't be any better...2015 was the first thing I found

Wouldnt it be more up to the local TV to pick up the Stadium broadcast of the game than the Conference?

It's really hard to know what is best for us right now. Obviously it feels better to us as fans to be on a major network, but the numbers appear to show that Facebook can get more eyeballs than TV right now. 400k viewers aint happening for us on ESPN2 or ESPNU.

This may be a dumb question, the 405.1k views for the MT-ODU game, were those unique views? Or was it total views of people checking in and out of the game on FB?

RE: Thoughts?
That 400K number is bogus. Keep in mind this is facebook not how Neilsen does ratings so you have to take into account how the Internet is different than TV. On the internet a page view is not the same thing as watching the game. It's paramount on traditional TV to counting the game "as watched" as you channel surf and flip across a station on your way to somewhere else.

I have no doubt Stadium probably got 400K page views across their Facebook page during the time of the game, but that doesn't mean people were watching it. The stream actually tells you how many people are watching at any one time. The most I saw that actually streaming it live was close to 2,000 at one point. There is no way 400,000 streamed that game.

Lastly, Harry's column is dead on. His last two graphs could have been the lead...

Conference USA and Stadium officials are doing innovative things with Facebook broadcasts, and as they experiment, I’m sure they’ll get it right.

But Thursday night, they got it wrong.

Exactly what I was thinking how do you discern views with actually watching the game.
No doubt television viewing has evolved so much in the last decade. It can no longer defined as watching on the traditional television set so to speak. That considered it is imperative to have games on the traditional networks for more viewers to watch. CUSA is behind the leagues we should consider as equals.
