Kansas State’s new online TV network isn’t on the same level as The Longhorn Network, which has received all kinds of attention for its mammoth contract with ESPN and its recent pursuit of a Big 12 Conference football game to broadcast.
K-StateHD.TV is mainly about exposure.
But the two broadcast entities could end up being similar in one way: They both want to show multiple football games this season.
Should any of its conference home games not be picked up by ABC/ESPN or FOX Sports, K-State athletic director John Currie said the Wildcats will push for that game to be broadcast live on its network.
“If the opportunity presents itself, we’re always going to seek that opportunity,” Currie said. “Anytime we have the opportunity to provide more exposure for our university and our student-athletes we’re going to explore that opportunity.”
