People love to watch sports, and sports executives know it – so the programming comes at a premium. The price networks pay to air sports has caused your basic TV bill to double over the past decade. The NFL alone makes a little over $7 billion per year for broadcast and cable rights to air their games. Combine that with the MLB, NBA, NHL, MLS, college and other sports and you can quickly see the impact.
Escalating salaries of star players and coaches place large financial demands on teams and leagues who drive up programming costs to cover expenses. All of this means escalating costs for you.
What’s more, many teams, leagues and conferences have their own networks and charge TV providers separate, additional fees. To maximize their profits, these sports networks require TV providers to include them on basic lineups, forcing you to pay for sports programming whether you watch sport or not – which just isn’t fair.
