One of the biggest stories about this year’s college football season was the fact that a lot of locations were not going to have access to the games. Several TV networks were no longer carrying the games and this was a cause for concern for a lot of fans.
The PAC ’12 application which we designed and developed took the initiative. People were able to type in their zip-code & cable provider and find out if the games would be available in their area. If the games were not available, they were able to sign a petition on the application which would then send an e-mail to the carrier on their behalf, showing the people’s interest in the games. It would also send out a Tweet to the carrier as well if the user were to connect with their Twitter account.
The application was a massive success with thousands of e-mails and tweets sent out, and the TV networks recognizing the overwhelming response and many eventually offering the games on their networks.
