Beginning this past Thursday, Fox will be streaming college football bowl games and preview shows on a few Web sites.
The network also has the rights to the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic (not part of the BCS bowl games) which they will stream on New Year’s Day. This will mark the first time a major college bowl game has been streamed online.
Users will be able to download full games, shortened versions and previews/highlights of the Cotton Bowl, the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, the FedEx Orange Bowl, the Allstate Sugar Bowl and the Tostitos BCS National Championship game.
Web sites participating in the venture included FoxSports.com, Fox Interactive, Apple iTunes and AOL Video. Pricing for the content will be $1.99 for game previews (which became available today) and $2.99 for full-length games which will be available to download within 24 hours of the end of the game.
