Big East launching year-round digital network with Fox Sports

Friday September 5th, 2014

The Big East Conference will launch a year-round digital network which will be distributed on Fox Sports' online platform, commissioner Val Ackerman told Bloomberg.

Ackerman said the network will carry 80-100 games each year and will be available on Fox Sports Go.

“This is a way to get additional exposure to women’s sports and Olympic sports,” Ackerman said.

She said the network will also cover news and do highlights.

The Big East has undergone many changes in recent years, most notably Syracuse and Pittsburgh leaving for the ACC last year. The 2013 restructuring led to the removal of football from the conference.
