  • [Canzano] “The ex-Fox Sports Network president, Bob Thompson, placed Oregon’s media-rights value at $30 million and Stanford’s at $45 million”
    And San Francisco subscribers currently get the B1G Network. Obviously they still pay carriage fees, I'm arguing that when everyone has the B1G network, it's value should be based on the number of additional viewers it draws, not what new media markets it draws in, as those markets already include the B1G network on the increasingly prevalent streaming platforms. - Source: Reddit / 9 months ago

Then put the YTTV app on the phone, go to the Current Playback Area Update menu on that app but DO NOT click Update, then pull up the Current Playback Area menu in your... - Source: Reddit / 11 months ago
  • If you’re on a family plan as a member, youtube tv now requires you to be in the same area code. Finding zero work around.
