Will the conference via theMW Network (Stadium?) produce the games or TNT sports?

How good or bad R the TNT productions of NBA basketball? or is it TBS?

I don’t have cable & don’t know who Max is.

@HTK Personally have not complaints but the reason for the question is TNT is not producing the CFP games and this press release makes no reference to production. Curious to see if this season is a test of TNT’s college football coverage using the MW schedule as a development opportunity to either expand their coverage with more broadcasts next year and/or also produce the CFP games.

I wonder if Pac 12 Enterprises, the successor to the Pac 12 network which is producing the Pac 12 (Pac 2) games for the CW, could be involved on the production side. Most of the games are in the same region as their bay area headquarters. I actually though the CW might pick up some of these MW games since they don’t have Pac 12 (Pac 2) games every week.

I am blessed & happy with CBS,FOX & Turner having contractional obligations with Mountain West Football.

Go Boise State Broncos!!!

Very cool. It appears that every game will be broadcast across both platforms with nothing being exclusive to Max, correct? Always happy when I can stay on the cable box and not have to switch between multiple platforms just to check in on something.

You know what they say, a TV contract is worth it’s weight in gold, as long as the gold’s value is worth it’s equivalent value in dollars, and the dollars can be obtained in exchange from others who want the gold.

SJSU has the most games covered with 5, UNM with 3. But as noted in my other comment, this appears more exploratory for TNT to test its coverage (and possibly its production) for future CFB opportunities. That could be extended to whether TNT Sports gets further involved negotiating with the MW or new PAC next year as part of the new media rights deals, sublicensing other conferences games next year, and/or expanding its CFP coverage to produce their contracted games after 2024’s season.

I guess these games would’ve been left to local TV or being streaming exclusives otherwise. Not a bad way for TNT Sports to dip its toe into regular season college football. Maybe this could lead to a more attractive package that includes Boise State and much more of San Diego State provided the long-rumored reverse merger materializes.
