OK, so a lot of people have been asking if we will have a live stream and a replay of the ENTIRE Big Blue Madness event. The answer is YES! In case you haven’t been following along, the SEC Network owns the rights to broadcasting Big Blue Madness, and they claim that due to not being able to finalize all the music licensing agreements that they cannot air Madness in its entirety on TV. They can, however, stream it online via ESPN3. We will be providing a restream from ESPN3, which will not have any Internet service provider restrictions/limitations or blackouts.
Only certain portions of Big Blue Madness will be aired on TV–not the entire event–and this news caused quite an uproar within the BBN this week. It was reported that ESPN/SEC Network received some 5,000 complaint calls on Tuesday and there were over 19,000 tweets on Tuesday that used the #FreeBigBlueMadness hashtag. Yikes!
Check back on the site 5-10 minutes after Big Blue Madness ends for a replay to appear.
