Maybe some useful information may be gleaned from this?
Hope it helps,
Over here we had ESPN and ESPN America, two separate channels. ESPN basically showed a lot of soccer and rugby, while ESPN America had College Football, College hoops etc. BT bought both channels but it's since been revealed ESPN America will close. So what everyone is waiting to find out is whether BT will put college football on the other channel. They might do. But it's almost certain it won't be as much, if any.
Plus BT are trying to muscle in on a TV market dominated by SKY. I am a SKY subscriber and will continue to be because of the NFL coverage. In the end I'm probably going to have to buy the online ESPN College Game Pass for a few months a year if I want to watch CFB. Not ideal because it doesn't include CBS games and CBS = SEC.
