So far, the conference has signed deals with these cable operators; Time Warner Cable, Comcast, Cox and BrightHouse to carry the networks but expect to add satellite and telephone companies.
The new deal also includes “TV everywhere” rights, (great deal here) permitting the networks to be viewed outside customers’ homes on any digital device, such as smart phones and tablet computers.
There will be six regional networks and a national network. The six regions will cover the schools in the following areas: Washington, Oregon, Northern California, Southern California, Arizona and Mountain (Utah and Colorado.)
