Malcolm –



Hello and how are you? Your email below made its way to me and I wanted to respond. We understand your frustration but ultimately we want to maximize visibility for our schools. We currently offer a mix of distribution between linear TV and digital for our cord cutters. We have been working for months with our web provider to get CUSA.tv on Roku. Roku has changed their terms and this has caused us problems as CUSA.tv is currently a subscription product and we don’t want fans to have to buy multiple subscriptions. Getting our content on Roku is a priority and we hope to offer this option to fans when football starts next fall. Thank you very much for your support of Marshall athletics!

Isn't pretty much every app on there a subscription product, like Netflix etc? They carry the app and you still have to sign in to show you have sub. Don't see that their response is even somewhat relevant.

exactly..see means she wants you to subscribe to c-usa tv..for an all-in 1 c-usa...

that there are other ways to get on roku like partnering with apps already on their (like fubo/watchespn) but they won't pick up everything, theyd have to split up into multiple products and would still be missing stuff

here response is they want c-usa tv on roku where you'll only have to sub once to watch on roku

RE: Got reply from CUSA office
I posted this around 5 PM today on another thread titled 'Thoughts'....

Today I got a response to an e-mail that I sent to the league office a few weeks ago regarding the poor availability of TV access to the conference Basketball and Football games. I have copied the response below for all to see. I would recommend that instead of beefing about the lack of decent TV coverage here on the forum that you take 5 minutes to send a cordial, direct, and factual e-mail about your own displeasure regarding the lack of coverage compared to other G5 conferences.

Personally I would like to see the conference develop it's own CUSA page on ROKU and the schools be obligated to cover their home events live. My second choice would be for the schools to reach an agreement to cover the home events and the league to have an agreement to get it on ESPN3.

Lastly I respect her for sending me an e-mail that addressed my concerns. I'm hoping that many others on here will follow suit. Remember that the squeaking wheel is the one that gets the grease.

E-MAIL RESPONSE

*****,

Hello and how are you? Your emails below have made their way to me and I wanted to be responsive to you. I do apologize for the delay. We certainly agree with your frustrations and want to get as many of our schools’ events covered by our current multimedia partners as well as future partners. We currently offer fans a mix between linear TV and digital for cord cutters. The smaller conferences who have not had linear TV options are ahead of us at producing their own content that is airing on digital providers like Roku and ESPN3. Those schools have been forced to produce their own content. Getting all of our C-USA schools’ video production capabilities ESPN3 compliant is a priority for Conference USA. We want all of our schools to be able to produce events at the highest level.



Our current partner Stadium just became available on Roku. We have been working for months with our web provider to get CUSA.tv on Roku. Roku has changed their terms and this has caused us problems as CUSA.tv is currently a subscription product and we don’t want fans to have to buy multiple subscriptions. We have had initial conversations with our members about offering CUSA.tv content for free. Ultimately it is their decision since it is their revenue stream. Either way, getting our content on Roku is a priority and we hope to offer this option to fans when football starts next fall.



We want to maximize visibility and make it as easy as possible for fans like you to watch games when you can’t be there in person. Thank you very much for your support of ODU Athletics. Take care!

Good to know it's a canned response that we both got exactly the same. Thanks for taking the time to listen CUSA, not.

She's probably surrounded by people telling her she's doing a great job. I felt the need to burst that bubble. More people complaining will be more effective than less people complaining. Hopefully a bombardment of ticked off fans will get a better product available or drive her out.

Unless our university presidents and AD's are griping to her then she is kicked back thinking she's Jobs or Bezos.

If the AD's and university presidents do not push for changes, it really will not matter what we think. Say ODU, MU, USM etc, used to more tv money, exposure, are out voted on conference matters, what are they going to be able to do to change anything. The fans get pissed, the school loses more attendance money, all due to the conference being a crap fest. What can these schools do if they want change but can't make it happen.

Then "copy" each of the member school's Presidents when you correspond with CUSA officials on such matters. And that is assuming the Presidents' letters are not filtered by some "could care less" secretary or clerk.07-coffee3
