If you tried to tune into the UTSA vs UAB game earlier today (it is still on as of this writing) or you planned to tune in later and watch Southern Miss at North Texas, you might have trouble identifying the actual channel, or app you will be using.
Fear not, sports-lover. UTSA’s athletic program posted a helpful link indicating the situation. It looks like it is a press-release or something copy-and-pasted from one. What we care about is that the regional sports networks.
This was part of the business strategy in buying the RSNs from Fox Sports. From wikipidia (and ultimately from the SBJ)
In 2019, with Sinclair’s acquisitions of regional sports networksFSN, Marquee Sports Network and a minority stake in YES Network, Sinclair CEO Chris Ripley said of Stadium’s role in the expanded sports offerings: “That will be our national play. I don’t see it competing head to head with FS1 or ESPN. It’s not there yet with its maturity.”
I suppose the money spent on those RSNs was some money that would have supported the website, which currently is poor. It has always been difficult to find anything on there, and links are either dead or circular. Even this, a PDF, is not really user friendly and falls well below the standard for any network or channel even BeIN.
The silver lining is that you likely have the channel unlike BeIN. So enjoy.
