ESPN will now provide primetime coverage of both the semis and finals. Not ESPN3 or ESPNU or some other lower brand. On the Worldwide Leader. Primetime. 2 nights. Wow.
And they are expanding overall event coverage, to include every mat in every session, and bringing nearly 2 dozen announcers. So every session will be televised on ESPN, ESPN3, and/or ESPNU.
Also, every match in the entire tournament will be streamed, so online viewers can watch every match. Viewers can set up quad screens to select up to any 4 of the mats at any given time, and can switch mats at will.
This is awesome news for Penn Staters (since we should have at least 5-6 semifinalists, and could have 8 if things break right). And for mat-heads everywhere.
