Kansas Athletics and ESPN Announce Multiyear Rights Agreement

Kansas Athletics and ESPN have agreed to a seven-year agreement, beginning with the 2013-14 academic year, under which ESPN3 annually will carry a minimum of 70 live events distributed nationally, one of the largest deals the multiscreen network has signed to date.

Kansas Athletics announced recently an agreement under which Time Warner Cable will annually air 50 KU contests - including two exhibition and four non-conference men's basketball games - exclusively on Metro Sports in Kansas City and in the state of Kansas. ESPN3 will deliver those 50 events nationally outside that territory. ESPN3 will also carry - exclusively - a minimum of 20 additional contests nationally, including in Kansas City and the state of Kansas. ESPN3 currently reaches more than 85 million homes nationwide to fans that receive their Internet or video subscription from an affiliated provider. It is accessible online at WatchESPN.com, on smartphones and tablets via the WatchESPN app, through ESPN on Xbox LIVE to Gold Members and on Apple TV.

The 70 events include one regular-season football game, the football spring game, six men's basketball games (including two exhibition games) and basketball's Late Night in the Phog, as well as 16 women's basketball games. ESPN3 will also deliver the Kansas Relays and multiple volleyball, baseball, softball and women's soccer games.

"ESPN3 continues to serve as a destination for college sports fans, and our agreement with Kansas Athletics extends that commitment," said John Lasker, vice president of programming and acquisitions, ESPN. "We look forward to delivering these live events to the KU fan base."

"From the start of this process, our goals were to saturate the Kansas City market, distribute Kansas programming throughout the state and make our live events available nationally," Kansas Director of Athletics Sheahon Zenger said. "We are meeting these goals through agreements like these with ESPN and Time Warner Cable. Both are significant steps for Kansas Athletics and we are excited about the future for all Jayhawk fans - wherever they may be watching."
