Where have those games gone to? Well, many of them are now streaming-only, on the Ivy League Digital Network, ESPN3, or both. American Sports Network has the rights to three Ivy League games in February, and it’s possible that they could pick up more, but for now, the Ivy League is going to have a lot less games shown on traditional TV. Of course, OWS wasn’t available on many providers either, so this may actually increase visibility for some who have access to ESPN3 but not OWS. However, the lessened TV appearances may still be a negative for the Ivy League.
This raises yet further questions about OWS. There’s been very little on them since our end-of-November report, and their website and programming schedule haven’t been updated since then. The listed programming schedule is for the “week of Nov. 28,” while their last posted story is an Asian Champions League piece from Nov. 24. Their Twitter account (20,500 followers!) also hasn’t tweeted since Nov. 24, and their Facebook page (172,333 likes!) hasn’t been updated since Nov. 22. (It is full of unaddressed comments about their programming schedule not lining up with what’s actually being aired, though.) Abandoned social media accounts and old stories? That sure sounds familiar. Perhaps the sale process is still ongoing, and perhaps someone will step in, buy them, and get things back to normalcy. For the moment, though, they seem to have mostly disappeared.
