Multiyear Rights Deal Places Big West Sports On Fox-Owned RSNs
FSN has signed a multiyear media rights deal with the Big West conference that makes Prime Ticket, FS West and FS San Diego the conference's exclusive regional TV partners. A formal announcement is expected to come today. Deal terms have the three RSNs carrying at least 20 events, including men's basketball, four men's basketball tournament quarterfinal games, the women's basketball tournament championship game, and championships in soccer and track & field. In the '13-14 season, when San Diego State joins the conference in all sports but football, that commitment will increase to 32 events, including at least 12 SDSU men's basketball games.
FSN will stream 800 live events per year on a soon-to-launch website, including all men's and women's basketball games and women's volleyball.
