Good way to lose cable customers.
Sports rights fees are a big reason that cable/dish bills go up every year. Next time you read about some channel on your cable signing a multi-billion dollar contract with a sports league or the NCAA, keep in mind the per-subscriber rights fees. And view the deals through the prism that it's the subscribers
who will ultimately be bankrolling those billions.
