Has anyone been broadcasting sporting events, TV shows etc. on screen? I am looking into this possibility for Ohio State football games and I was wondering if anyone has had to go through the process of getting this set up already.

Shane,

Jeff Frank at the DREXEL GROUP (http://www.arenagrand.com/contactus.htm), Larry Gardner at the SCREENS AT THE CONTINENT (http://www.thescreens.org/ContactUs.asp) or STUDIO 35 (www.studio35.com) are all showing the OSU football schedule.

They have been successfully running OSU football games for some time. They are well advertised and promoted. No admission is usually charged, but they sell a LOT of concessions.

OSU tickets are pretty much impossible for the average fan to get, so these gatherings of fans have been very popular. A lot of people around here sure love their OSU football.

I was down at the Arena Grand when they were setting up for one of these, and they were using one of those small satellite dishes. So, I checked out Direct TV. They do offer a plan for public viewings.

You can find some detailed information about signing up here, including prices and the formal agreement:

Hope that helps! I think you would do very well with OSU. Arena Grand has even done DESPARATE HOUSEWIVES!.
