Glad you got a response. If they can get football games by this fall on Roku that would be a positive step. I emailed them as well. We have got to get better coverage on tv period.

Correct and those are the people we need to be complaining to. I personally think when you are complaining about not getting coverage the first thing that pops in the ADs head is....cheap ass get off the couch and buy a ticket and support your team. But a lot of us are season ticket holders.

Since CUSATV is controlled by each school as far as revenue. I think we all should contact our ADs and let them know as a season ticket holder cusatv should be free to us that spend the money for those season tickets. Sometimes life gets in the way of going to a game and you should have to pay again.

Actually if you think about it , it could drive season ticket sales up at least on the low end range tickets.

But in the end when you are part of making a hire....the last thing you want to admit, you made a mistake. I don't blame the commissioner for the TV or lack of it because she was dealt this hand of a 5-3 off suit . I don't think she's the right face for the conference...too low energy. But any change is years off. No way those who made this hire is willing to say they failed, at this point.

That mentality kills me. Fail fast and learn from it. It does nobody, including yourself, amy good to hide behind the mistake.

TV coverage is about more than getting off the coach and going to a game.

It's about the regular fans watching an away game that is half way across the country. It's about building your fan base. It's about telling a recruit your family and friends will be able to follow you every game you play home or away. It's a statement that we take pride in our conference. It's about getting to know the players and coaches on the other teams in the conference. It's about BUILDING A FAMILY!

Why not charge a subscription fee for all the CUSA content not just your home school? Otherwise every school should have their own Roku app that stream their own content. I strongly prefer the first option.

Same. Charge 6.99 a month for all cusa content. Period. All schools. That's kind of what I thought we were doing 2 years ago when it was supposed to be on the schools to be prepared to produce a stream.

I think I reacted and didn't respond. Does cusa.tv not give you access to all games from app teams? I thought I could watch anything they had available when I was subscribing for a few months.

My reply from her--

Hello and how are you? Your email below has made its way to me and I wanted to respond. We certainly agree with you and want to get as many events covered by our current multimedia partners as well as future partners. Getting all of our schools’ video production capabilities ESPN3 compliant is a priority.

As for CUSA.tv, we pulled all live streaming video together into CUSA.tv almost two years ago. The idea behind it was that fans could see their team’s home and away games with just one subscription. Having access to all other events as well could cultivate new fans. While we wanted to make this easier for fans – it was already a revenue source for each of our schools so we decided to initially keep it as a paid product. We have just recently started talking to our members about transitioning to a free offering in response to feedback like yours below. Thanks very much for your support!

With CUSA.TV you can watch all games from any team. The problem is it's only available on computers and phones. We want it in an app form for major brands of TV viewing like Roku, Firestick, Apple TV etc. Some of those may get it, but Roku does not and I don't want to invest in 30 ways to see games. We need consolidated platforms. If you use a Firestick or a Roku then you should be able to get ESPN3, Stadium, Facebook Watch(Stadium), and CUSA.TV all on that device. Right now we have 2 of those.

Doesn't even account for ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, beIN or CBSSports, but most people have a TV package that already includes most of those. I'd prefer to have apps for those too, included with my Directv, on the same Roku. Then I can hook up one device at my bar and tell the bartender to use whichever app is applicable and head to the game. As it is now, I have to hang around and make sure the right means is set up on the computer, the sound is hooked up, it working on the projector, the dumbasses at Herdvision aren't starting the game late, resetting the connection as needed, as it always seems to drop, etc, etc.

RE: Got reply from CUSA office
I wonder why the stopped allowing it to be used with Chromecast? The first year they did but no longer, now I have to directly hook my phone up to the TV.

I wonder how many subscriptions are lost because it's not on Roku and Chromecast?
