It’s not looking good:
Conference USA TV revenue to plummet to $2.8 million per year
Conference USA now appears fourth in the so called Group of 5 mid-major leagues when it comes to TV money. The American Athletic ($2 million per school), the Mountain West ($1.7 million) and Mid-American ($800,000) are all estimated to be well ahead of C-USA, which had the misfortune of being the first league to renegotiate its TV contracts during the current decline in cable sports revenue.
Report: Conference USA to get less than $3 million in TV revenue
If you needed proof of how much C-USA was struggling for television exposure in the future, look no further than the agreement it inked with BeIn Sports. The network, which attracts 10s of thousands of viewers, rather than hundreds of thousands or even millions, is one of four networks slated to televise football games for the conference in 2016.
