WILL THE SUPER BOWL ON CABLE IN A COUPLE YEARS?
- BlueThunderLv 71 decade agoFavorite Answer
It won't happen in a couple of years but it's possible in the future.
ESPN has outbid all the broadcast networks for the 4 BCS bowl games and the BCS National Championship Game starting in 2011 and through 2014.
The current NFL contracts with ABC, NBC, CBS, ESPN, and the NFL Network expire after 2013. So the Super Bowl will be on one of the broadcast networks at least through 2013.
I never thought that the major bowls and the NC game would ever be moved off of broadcast TV. But it happened. Of course, ESPN is more than just cable, since they also sell access to satellite TV and online sources.
I'm thinking that ESPN, perhaps with some cable and satellite providers as partners, will make a run at trying to get the Super Bowl after 2013. A lot will depend on how successful the college bowls and NC game are on cable/satellite.
The networks will obviously want to keep the biggest payday of the year and will put up a fight to keep the Super Bowl. But we've already seen them cave on the college bowls.
I'd still say that the Super Bowl moving to cable/satellite after 2013 is a long shot. But I was wrong about the college bowls, and it is definitely a possibility.
