Reuters Article
Digital media company RealNetworks Inc. said it would team up with Fox Sports to offer live coverage of college football games over the Internet for the 2003 season.
The deal between RealNetworks, known for its RealOne media player, and Fox Sports Interactive Media, which is part of media conglomerate News Corp. Ltd., is another move by RealNetworks to seek growth by offering online content.

The companies said the plan to offer exclusive and live coverage of non-televised and pay-per-view games would provide the first live, season-long coverage of college football.

Subscribers to RealOne SuperPass, RealNetworks' online service, will pay $9.95 per month to see out-of-market games, while additional pay-per-view games can be bought for $14.95 each, the companies said.

Seems similar to the deal between Real and MLB.

Yeah, that's what it looks like.

The only problem I have with this is that the quality of video is not as that great to watch on 60" monitor! It maybe good for 40". Also, there are momentary pauses in the video streaming. It is a good and probably a cheap way to get the games...

Not all games are on TV... Even with ESPN Gameplan, you miss out on some JP Sports games, at least out here in Arizona...
