Aug. 31, 2005
NEW YORK - iN DEMAND Networks and CSTV: College Sports Television, the #1 destination for college sports, kick off the college football season with CSTV All-Access, a new pay-per-view sports package that offers, for the first-time, coverage of up to 55 regular season Division 1A gridiron contests from Conference USA. The CSTV All-Access package begins with a free preview on September 1 and September 3, and runs through November 26. College football fans are able to purchase the package now for a special rate of $39.95 through October 1. After October 1, cost for the entire season is $59.95. To order the "ultimate college football experience," digital cable subscribers can call 888-SPORTS-IN or contact their local cable operator.
With up to 55 Conference USA games on the CSTV All-Access schedule, fans will have plenty of opportunity to watch some of the most explosive players in college football including one of the pre-season favorites for the Heisman Trophy, Memphis Tigers' DeAngelo Williams, who rushed for an astonishing 1,948 yards and a nation-leading 22 touchdowns last season; and a bevy of national awards candidates such as UTEP's talented signal caller Jordan Palmer, who led the Miners to the best turnaround in Division 1A last year with an 8-4 mark.
This package includes Marshall University's Thursday night opener with William and Mary. iN DEMAND is also available in the Huntington area through Adelphia and Charter. Please contact your local cable operator about availability.
CSTV televises regular season and championship event coverage from over 35 men's and women's sports across every major collegiate athletic conference as well as many select NCAA Championships. This package is part of a long-term relationship between CSTV and Conference USA; CSTV and the Mountain West Conference recently announced a fully integrated multi-media partnership, beginning in Fall 2006, as well.
