LADIES NIGHTS: In Hartford, John Altavilla notes for UConn women's basketball fans outside the SNY footprint, "all but the three CBS games can be viewed online at ESPN3, currently available to more than 85 million homes to fans who subscribe to the Internet." SNY last year offered a PPV streaming service "inside and outside the SNY footprint." That will "no longer be the case" (HARTFORD COURANT, 11/8).
AT THE TOP OF THEIR GAME: VARIETY's Rick Kissell noted Fox Deportes, boosted in part by the World Series, "held off its rivals in October and has cemented its standing as the most popular Spanish-language sports network in America." The net remains ahead of both Univision Deportes and ESPN Deportes for the year to date. Fox Deportes for the month of October averaged 90,000 viewers in primetime, more than Univision Deportes (62,000) and ESPN Deportes (54,000). Fox Deportes' exclusive Spanish broadcast of the World Series averaged 215,000 total viewers and 135,000 adults 18-49, up 41% in both categories from '12 (VARIETY.com, 11/7).
