New Tier Communications, which produces and distributes broadband video, on Tuesday said it reached a long-term revenue-sharing partnership with Arizona State University Athletics to market the
school's new and archived sports footage to fans as well as content carriers such as SBC and Verizon--each of which is in the process of expanding content offerings. Sun Devil fans can subscribe to
the Sun Devil Sports Network on an annual basis at $99.95, or on a monthly basis at $9.95, although an introductory offer allows fans to buy a one-time annual subscription for $79.95. In late
September, New Tier announced a similar partnership with ISP Sports, the multimedia rights holder for University of California Athletics.
