Disney’s ABC/ESPN is now the home for College Football Bowl Championship Series

Just a quick follow up on a story from last week. It was reported that ESPN had bid $125 million for rights to broadcast the NCAA Division I College Football Bowl Championship Series on the cable channel. Turns out that was for just one year. They actually bid $500 million to get the rights for four years… and guess what? They won.

That’s a lot of money, I hope it pays off.

    Actually, those are the rights for four of the five BCS games.
    ABC/ESPN already has the rights for the Rose Bowl under a separate contract.
