Mizzou, McNeese State Playing On Pay-Per-View

New, 1 comment

Mizzou is on pay-per-view this week and wants you to pay $40 to watch them play. Unfortunately there won't be a ton of people that will do that.

Why do schools do pay-per-view?

Sure it brings in a little cash but it also diminishes the size of the TV watching crowd and ultimately hurts Mizzou's relevance.

It's like websites that charge for you to view their content. Sure, it provides a short-term money grab but ultimately it hurts your traffic -- and thus your relevance -- putting a ceiling on your success. If you're in it for the long-term, it makes very little sense.

SB Nation's Rock Chalk Talk seems to think it's a little much, too.

Can you believe people are actually going to pay $40 to watch this game on PPV?  Even Lew Perkins thinks that is outrageous.

Oh well, Five more years we'll be watching it on the Mizzou TV Network anyway.
