FSU/Auburn BCS Title Tilt To Be “Megacast”

television-wallYou’ve heard of broadcasting.  Now get ready for “megacasting.”

ESPN has announced plans to air the BCS Championship Game between Auburn and Florida State via six different pipelines.  Yep, six.  Your viewing options will be as follows:

 

ESPN — The traditional broadcast featuring Brent Musburger and Kirk Herbstreit.

ESPN 2 — “BCS Title Talk” will run throughout the game, featuring commentary and discussion among ESPN analysts, coaches and celebrities.

ESPNews — “BCS Film Room” will be provide play-by-play analysis from different camera angles.

ESPN Classic — “Sounds of the BCS” will feature only the game and in-stadium sounds (field mics, PA announcer, etc), no announcers.

ESPN3 — The website will provide team-specific coverage with the radio broadcasts from both schools available.

ESPN Goal Line — This game time-only channel will provide live action video, replays, the ESPN radio broadcast and up-to-the-minute stats.

 

ESPN head of programming Norby Williamson told USA Today: “We always champion the multi-platform approach of ESPN.  We thought this was the perfect opportunity to frankly have some fun, experiment and try to come up with different offerings to see what we can deliver on the biggest stage that we’re going to have.”

Expect Mike Slive and the folks at the SEC office to be watching closely.  As the SEC/ESPN partnership expands next season with the launch of the SEC Network, it’s a good bet the conference and the network will at some point trot out a multi-platform experience for a mondo SEC-versus-SEC contest.

The biggest drawback to this type thing in this writer’s opinion?  The constant fear that you’re missing something better on another channel.  Have those clickers ready, fans.

    We want to start our own blog page together on blogspot, but I just thought about us having our own separate google accounts. How can we start a blog page together where it’ll be easier for both of us to log on besides just using one person’s google…
