CSTV Reaches Atlantic 10 Deal


CSTV Networks announced a partnership with the Atlantic 10 Conference Wednesday.

The deal, which tips off with the start of the 2006-07 school year in September, gives CSTV long-term .media and marketing rights for all 21 men's and women's Atlantic 10 sports.

CSTV was acquired by CBS Corp. earlier this month.

The conference is made up of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, University of Dayton, Duquesne University, Fordham University, George Washington University, La Salle University, University of Massachusetts, University of Rhode Island, University of Richmond, St. Bonaventure University, Saint Joseph's University, Saint Louis University, Temple University and Xavier University.

“This deal gives the Atlantic 10 more access to placing more games and sports across more platforms than ever before,” Atlantic 10 commissioner Linda Bruno said in a prepared statement. “No longer do geographic and schedule limitations prevent us from connecting with everyone who wants to follow Atlantic 10 sports.”
