As a remote fan who has limited access (at best) to Bally Sports OK, I was so excited when I heard this news. Even when Youtube TV carried Bally (it doesn't anymore), I didn't get OU sports live; I had to watch them on a delayed basis.

I mean, for the few OU basketball games it carries and the one OU football game. Not that big of a deal in the grand scheme.

Don't care about the 43 OU baseball games, nor the OU softball games. So that point is null to me.

Felt like OU B-Ball games were on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, or even ESPNNEWS this year. Even the NIT games were on ESPN's family of networks. Feels like that every year. We'll see if it is 12 like you stated.

Most non-conference games were on Bally. Conference slate was ESPN.

Yeah, I do recall having to find an illegal stream for the Florida game. Which was a complete pain in the rectum. But if that would've been on ESPN this past year, it would've been on one of the main ESPN channels.

I truly empathize with fans who will have no choice but to pay for the new Bally streaming service if they want to watch their team. If anything, Bally should be forced to pay customers to watch, not the other way around.

I have zero problems with Bally Sports. Watch plenty of OU and STL Cardinals games on there. Hate having to watch ESPN+ thru an app.

This sucks. As bad as Bally was, I could record games and watch them later, weeks or however long I needed to wait. ESPN Plus leaves them up for like one day, maybe two if you're lucky. Plus, it's yet ANOTHER expense I now have to pay. I hate it.

So because you donít care about all of this content then that makes it not a big deal? What about all the other folks who do like to watch this content and have been pulling their hair out trying to watch via bally? The fact is the school will be making more money while providing a much better product for the fans. Itís a pretty big deal.

That's assuming Bally actually aired them at the time, and on the channel, listed in the guide. I found that about 50 percent of games aired on a different channel than listed. And here is how incompetent they are: two KC Royals games in the past week simply didn't air because they didn't send the correct programming to the cable company. Instead, they sent old MMA shows to Cox cable, and the games were not aired at all.

Bally has awful production value on college sports. They rarely show things like the shot clock, team fouls, etc. I was hesitant to subscribe to ESPN+, but have been happier than expected since I took the plunge over a year ago. As a massive sports fan, it is worth $5/month. It not only gives you access to lots of OU games, but other sports, plus columns/articles on their website.

Bally's sucks. So we agree there. A big deal for baseball and softball watchers. I'll find my streams for basketball though.

I watch on my tv as well, but it's still thru the ESPN+ app. It's just not very convenient.

I've also been very underwhelmed with the folks ESPN let's broadcast these games on ESPN+. I mean, some of those people should be embarrassed. It's that bad (IMO). Not saying Bally's has the best of the best, but some of those ESPN+ broadcasts are unbearable.

100%

I don't mind McKee and Manzer, I actually like them. I don't know where ESPN digs up some of these yahoos.
