    Anyone know why ESPN doesn't sell the ad space on ESPN3 broadcasts?

    They show "ESPNPHOtO"s instead. Seems like an huge missed opportunity - one that an ESPN run ACC Network could certainly benefit from...

    I can only assume that they cannot find anyone willing to pay for this ad space. I'm sure they would if they could.

    That's what I'd say, too. Some of the dead time has ads.

    My guess is that advertisers have standards, and don't want their ads shown in 200x100 webcam resolution at 5 frames per second with a 25% chance of just cutting out half way through. I'd bet money ESPN is intentionally reducing the quality of their streams so as to force people to keep paying for cable.
