Arkansas game will be televised by the sec network.
Right, that game is at Arkansas so the SEC will have the tv rights and it will most likely be on the SEC network or could be on one of the espn channels. The NMSU is also on the road so they own the rights and they use Aggievision to put their home games on channels like ROOT or Altitude which is available on Directv and Dish for sports package subscribers. Also might be picked up locally in El Paso by Time Warner cable. Then ASN still needs to make their picks this summer and UTEP games vs UTSA, FIU and FAU could all be televised through them.

C- USA might not have their games televised by CBS SN since they have shown less of the conference content (football, basketball, baseball etc.) in recent years. Also CBSN just signed a four- year contract with the MAC.

True, CBSSN only televised 9 or so C-USA games last year and a similar amount this year. CBSSN is going the cheap route and buying cast off games from espn. They bought AAC excess games and now MAC. Looks like when C-USA contracts run out after the upcoming season, only Fox and ASN have an interest. espn has so much inventory that they are out of room for televising more games so they either sell them off or put them on espn3 which does not make a lot of money or get a lot of viewers compared to actual tv at this point.

Which makes the puzzlement of why they haven't expanded their streaming options. With the high demand and the market flush with bigger market games, it's obvious where ESPN's broadcast interest will be.

I'm guessing more mid week games for smaller schools and conferences.
