You paid for COX cable right...then game wasn't free. Unless you are saying game could have been viewed via antenna
But you did not pay extra above that for the same content that is now moved to ESPN+.
Basically the new deal provides ESPN the right to pull back content that the schools kept previously and gave them to ESPN to use on whatever platform they chose. ESPN is then using that right to drive more ESPN+ sales.
This is a win for ESPN and Big 12. ESPN gets more subscriptions for their new streaming service and Big12 gets more revenue.
It is a loss for viewers of providers that previously carried those games at no additional cost. Because now instead of getting those games, they need to pay more to another party.
