Sunshine Network will make the Sept. 1 college-football game between Florida
State University and Duke University available on pay-per-view to cable systems
and commercial establishments throughout Florida.
The live PPV showing at 6 p.m. that evening will come in addition to the
regional sports network's taped coverage of the game Sept. 2 at 7 p.m. and the
following day at 12:30 p.m.
The suggested retail price is $24.95 in advance and $29.95 the day of the
game, Sunshine said.
Sunshine's FSU announcers -- Paul Kennedy (play-by-play), Keith Jones
(analyst) and Tom Block (sideline) -- will call the action live from Wallace
Wade Stadium in Durham, N.C.
Per Atlantic Coast Conference television contracts, when an ACC team does not
have its game selected by ABC, ESPN or Jefferson-Pilot Communications, it is
allowed to televise that game live on a statewide basis only on PPV.
Consequently, Sunshine cannot air these games live on the network, but it can
make them available to cable systems and satellite distributors on a PPV
Sunshine reaches more than 5.5 million homes.
