Why not? I see that becoming a standard provision in such contracts. The constituency for such a provision is the players' parents, relatives, friends, coaches as well as alums, fans, etc., who may live hundreds or thousands of miles away from the game's location. My guess is now most schools have potential feeds produced by their conference, their local TV station, a cable or broadcast network or an outsource individually contracted.
Yes, but you overlook that rights are often exclusive.
For example, a UNH game broadcast by NESN, and if there is no streaming, and you don't get NESN in FL:you are plain out of luck.
If I pay through the nose for an expanded sports bundle, which gives me the Big Ten network, then the Big Ten network doesn't live-stream Michigan's game with Eastern Michigan for free.
The Big Ten network charges an average of 0.39 cents a month, has 79 million subscribers, and annual revenue of $370 million. The SEC network has annual revenue of $546 million.
Your UNH-NESN is a hypothetical, but does anyone know if there will a streaming option for the game on Saturday? the page on goholycross says TBA currently
sader1970- You are very perceptive--even if you may have intended that to be sarcastic. I tried to apply that attitude throughout my professional career. Maybe that's how I became a product development mgr. My heroes (Edison, Ford, Jobs, Einstein, etc.) all lived by that mantra. Einstein was correct when he said "Imagination is more important than knowledge."

I did not have a chance to respond earlier to Joe's post and thought you might think my suggestion was sarcastic but, while I understand why you might think that it was meant as sarcasm, it was intended as straight-forward serious based on your many comments about improvements to Fitton football field and streaming which is not now the current reality and your questioning why not now.
