This new offer would give ESPN its own digital channel for Longhorn, widely available to Suddenlink’s customers who want it. We told ESPN they could make this channel available for free or set whatever price they like — and keep all revenues, including all advertising revenues. Under this offer, Suddenlink would have made no money.
So far — a week later and counting — the response from ESPN has been … chirping crickets. Not a single word.
We remain ready and willing to negotiate.
