Apple likely considering Big East/NCAA content
« on: January 14, 2022, 07:17:54 AM »
Quote
With Apple spending $7 billion annually on original content and having roughly $200 billion of cash on its balance sheet, we believe the company is gearing up to bid on a number of upcoming sports packages coming up for contract/renewals in future years. We note that upcoming sports packages potentially for bid over the next four years that Apple can be involved with (in some capacity/semi-exclusive) are: NFL (Sunday Night Ticket), Big Ten, Pac 12, Big East, Big 12, other NCAA sports packages (2024 timing), NASCAR, and the NBA/WNBA.

Imagine this must be good news regardless (especially if it means less Dickey Simpkins)

Unless I need to buy an apple TV subscription on top of everything else
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Apple buys NFL TV rights >>. Broadcasts live w/o commercials >> No more TV time outs and long delays >> NFL restructures clock related rules to speed up game >> NFL games suddenly become watchable again >> more NFL viewers because games are now less than 2 hours.

That would be great.

31 games in a season.

—First 10 are on FS1

—games 11-20 are split between CBSSN, Disney (with Mickey Mouse commentating) and NBC (can only watch on peacock gold app),

—games 22-25 are on HBOmax,

—games 26-31 are on FuboTv

—game 21 and the BEast Tourney is on AppleTV (why game 21 and then the tourney gap? that way your free 30 day trial ends before the BEast tourney.)

Currently they're offering a 3 month free trial. Sit on that till next season.

I don’t think it would work like that. But it’s a nice thought.

Yeah, as someone not enveloped by the Apple matrix, this would be bad news for the BE in my eyes.

From my own personal standpoint, I agree. But we might reach a lot more younger eyes with games on a streaming service.

As crappy as most Apple+ shows are, they need sports on their service.

NFL doesnt have specific TV timeouts, correct? I guess after kickoffs and when teams switch D and O there is an built-in commercial break?

This 100% should happen in basketball. Absolute asinine a sport has built in stoppages for television with the amount of stoppages already built-in. Basketball should be looking to emulate soccer, not American football, and focus on making the game pace flow better. The sport is already inundated with endless stoppages at the end of games.

Apple+ is the only streaming APP I cannot get to work on my new Fire TV.

Paramount+ for me on Samsung. I can watch live USMNT matches, but when it comes to streaming content, spin spin spin.

Few talk about it, but the brutal war between streaming dollars and gambling dollars is coming. And it will be a bloodbath.

I think your being serious. Not sure. The NFL is one big TV break after another. Unless you think players need to stand around for minutes with hands on their hips talking about last nights dinner.  Except for playoff games, I stopped watching NFL games live years ago.

It would be the equivalent of basketball going to break for minutes when a new player enters the game. Ok, not exactly, but you get the idea.

At least the NFL stopped always going to ads in one circumstance: score, cut to add, kick off, cut to Ad. A kickoff sandwiched between 6 minutes of ads. 

Anyway, I’d love for games to be on a streaming service. Cable and  its little brother - live streaming services - are dying unless your an older guy or someone who watches fixer up shows all day.

I’d hate for the BE to get tied to cable or cable light for additional 10 years. It’s dying. In 10 years very few people will have it. Death for BE. Plus Apple and a few of the streaming services will be way out front on what is about to happen with VR and AR etc.  that is where we want to be.
