OTA sports channel

Post by WheresTheRemote » Sun Jan 13, 2019 11:23 pm

Just wondering everyone's thoughts if we could ever see Fox Sports, ESPN, or NBC Sports as a digital channel under Fox, ABC and NBC. (I.e a 2.5, 7.4, or 4.4 or whatever)


Currently has 52 OTA channels

Almost certainly never, since those are part of why cable bills are so high (retransmission fees and agreements with local/regional sports teams.. plus, those big stadiums aren't gonna pay for themselves!)... American Sports Network kinda fizzled out and was re-formed into Stadium (both owned by Sinclair Broadcast Group), but even then.. that's not quite on the same level of ESPN or Fox Sports.

Of course not. Taxpayers do that!
