Just an update on this from Ben Issacs
So as it stands just the SEC game on the week on TNT and Notre Dame (home) games on Sky. I think his idea of BBC going after some rights is a bit pie in the sky, DAZN is probably more a little more likely as they look to fill out/prop up their offering (just got the Saudi Pro League) as it continues to burn more cash than the KLF!
What about YouTube TV? It carries ESPN, Fox, CBS, NBC, etc. Whilst it requires a US zip code etc, there are ways... 👀
Had this from discovery+...
Thank you for taking the time to get in touch with discovery+ Customer Support. My name is Liam and I will be happy to help with your enquiry today.
I understand that you were looking for more information on our coverage of the NCAA Football season. We are certainly showing live games this season on TNT Sports, however exact details have not been released as of yet. I would suggest keeping an eye on our social media channels in the coming weeks for more information releasing as we get closer to the start of the season.
I do hope that this has helped. If you have any further questions or queries, please feel free to get back in touch.
"Some bad news. I've now had it 100% confirmed there will no CFB of any kind on TNT going forward. So no SEC game from CBS. As it stands there will be 7 CFB games available in the UK and Ireland this year - the 7 Notre Dame home games shown by Sky Sports."
So much for, "We might be getting a new name but everything else will stay the same, "
After the college football season finished in January, I've hardly watched BT\TNT Sports. This is the final nail in my decision to cease my BT TV subscription and go down the IPTV route.
Any explanation why TNT have reneged on their promise when taking over from BT?
By all accounts they could make the claim that they were taking the same content BT Sport had, because they still had a contract with ESPN for their content through 31st July. The fact that they (whether TNT or ESPN isn't clear) then chose not to renew that contract is, apparently, entirely separate to the BT -> TNT transfer.
