Green Boy Preu-Gazetfa Saturday, March 17, 1984 A-l 1 Sports pay-cable A new way to raise bucks for Wisconsin sports teams is brewing around the state, including here. It's Sportsvue, a pay-cable TV venture with Milwaukee Brewers baseball and Milwaukee Bucks basketball at its core. JSportsvue's arrival April 3 will bring about departures, some which will cause a bit of unTiappiness. 'Notable is the trimming of the Brewers' over-the-air TV schedule. Last season, Channel 26 televised mdrje than 60 games. This season, the limit is 30 games because of Sportsvue. At suburban Total TV, the Hdfhe Theater Network movie channel (300 subscribers) is getting the ax as of March 31. Sportsvue will take its place on Channel 18. At N.E.W. Media Cablevision of Green Bay and Howard, the probable candidate for the chopping block is The Associated Press text service, though that's not definite. Sportsvue is tenatively slated to appear on Channel 29. Sportsvue operates under this chain of thinking: There are a lot of die-hard Brewers and Bucks fans around the state. Many will be willing to pay ($8 minimum a month) for viewing games they've seen for free up to now. More games will be offered. There will be enough subscribers to make Sportsvue profitable, with money turned back to the teams. ; "Both the Bucks' and Brewers' survival is not dependent upon the success of Sportsvue," says Larry ilWGB groups to perform in Lenten concert Music for women's voices and sacred works for the Lenten season will be performed Sunday, March 25, at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. Susan Matthews will direct the university's Vocal Ensemble and Trinidad Chavez the Concert Choir. The program begins at 2 p.mi in the University Theater. The Vocal Ensemble will present music of the 19th and 20th centuries. Concert Choir selections range from the 16th century to the Prime-time soaps put CBS, ABC in tie LOS ANGELES (AP) Riding the popularity of the soap operas "Dallas" and "Dynasty," CBS and ABC deadlocked last week in the first prime-time network ratings tie of the season. In the A.C. Nielsen ratings for the week ended March 11, ABC and CBS had a 17.0 average, while NBC's was 13.4. The networks say this means that in an average prime-time minute, 13.4 percent of all households with televisions were turned into an NBC show. ;New programs generally had a rough time last week. On ABC, "a.k.a. Pablo" Norman Lear's series about a struggling Mexican-American comic landed in 37th place. "Two Marriages," a family drama that returned to ABC after premieririg lait summer, was No. 66. I The CBS cooking-show com-ecfy, "Mama Malone," was No. 54. CBS continued to lead in season-to-date ratings at 18.2. ABC was next at 17.4, and NBC trailed at?5.1. CBS maintained its dominance of! the evening news, with a 13.9 iCRigidaire i APPLIANCES hti ... 1241 Bailami &t Groan Bay SUNDAY ICHICKEN V DINNER : 2 Large Pieces Fried Chicken Our Own Fresh Coleslaw Lots of Crispy French Fries : Only on Sunday and Only at Call ahead for fast carryout service. 494-6776 Entertainment Gerds Warren Gerds is critic-at-large of the Press-Gazette Barbera, vice president of sales and marketing for the network. "However, Sportsvue could greatly assist them in remaining the competitive, highly visible teams that we've come to expect them to be as the result of their successes in the past." Barbera adds, "There are very few new revenue sources available to the sports owners today. Sportsvue becomes a new revenue source. No question about the fact they're real optimistic about its possibilities." He was referring to Brewers owner Allan "Bud" Selig and Bucks owner James Fitzgerald. Total TV also happens to be Fitzgerald's domain. Though Total TV was sold recently, Fitzgerald has a five-year contract as a consultant for the new owner, and he remains heavily involved in the state system. All Total TV systems will carry Sportsvue. In this region, Total modern period. In "Song From Twelfth Night" by Brahms, the Vocal Ensemble of 14 voices will be accompanied by piano and two French horns. Vincent Persichetti's "Winter Cantata," a descriptive piece comprising 12 short movements, is scored for women's voices, marimba and flute. The ensemble also will perform "O Bone Jesu" by Brahms, "Nigra Sum" by Pablo Casals and "A Hymn to Truth" by M. Thomas rating. NBC moved into second place with 10.9, and ABC was third with 10.6. The 10 top programs of the week: "Dallas," CBS, a rating of 26.8 or 22.4 million households; "Dynasty," ABC; "Simon & Simon," CBS; "Magnum, P.I.," CBS; "The A-Team," NBC; "60 Minutes," CBS; "Knots Landing," CBS; movie-"Dark Mirror," ABC; "Hotel," ABC; "Falcon Crest," CBS. The rest of the top 20: movie-"The Spy Who Loved Me," ABC; "Hardcastle & McCormick," ABC; "The Fall Guy," ABC; "Scarecrow & Mrs. King," CBS; "The Jeffer-sons," CBS; "Webster," ABC, and "AfterMASH," CBS, tie; "Newhart," CBS; "Alice," CBS; movie-"Calamity Jane," CBS.

Sportsvue plans to carry 200 live events a year. It will be on the air only during the games and pre-and postgame segments. This season, 67 Brewer games are scheduled, 22 at home. Steve Shannon, Mike Hegan and Bob Uecker are the announcers. The Sportsvue games will not be duplicated on Channel 26, and the games on Channel 26 will not be on Sportsvue. Same with the Bucks, who will be on Sportsvue 33 times next season, 13 at home. Naturally, the owners are going to look at attendance figures for the televised home games with a magnifying glass. If crowds fall, it's back to the drawing board as far as televising them. If big crowds come anyway, more home game telecasts are possible in the future, Barbera says. These are the plans for the 100 other telecasts: 40 University of Wisconsin (primarily basketball and hockey) games, 10 Marquette University (primarily basketball) games, 20 American League baseball games, 10 NBA games and 20 NHL games. Barbera says there are 450,000 cable homes in Wisconsin, and Sportsvue will have access to 250,000 of those. He predicts a signup rate of from 5-10 percent initially. Cousins. Kathy De Jardin is piano accompanist for the Vocal Ensemble. Robin Abraham and Wendy Wojta will perform on French horn, Ellen Robl on flute and Lonni Ann Ackermann on marimba. Ackermann teaches percussion instruments and directs the Percussion Ensemble at UWGB. The others are students. The Concert Choir of 40 voices will open with "Surely He Hath Borne Our Griefs" by Tomas L. W00PSIPI Sunday Serving Family Style Chicken Family Style Chicken & Ribs $Q85 75 Wed.

Sports vue's startup costs will be between $5 million and $6 million for the first two years, Barbera says. The network will need between 40,000-60,000 subscribers to "turn the comer," he says. Total TV in Brown County will charge $8 a month. Cablevision has not set its price yet. I've gotten a few phone calls from people eagerly awaiting Sportsvue. They were adamant about the network being available here (this was before it was announced). Also, they were not only willing to pay to see the Brewers and Bucks, but they agreed with the owners that such a network was essential to raise more money to help keep the teams contenders. For a majority of subscribers, though, that argument either won't wash or they can't afford another fee or they don't give a hoot about sports of any sort. At any rate, this kind of venture is part of a trend in professional sports around the country. Other such networks are operating in major markets. In case you're worried about having to pay for watching the Packers on TV, rest at ease for a while. The league has four more years left on its contract with ABC, CBS and NBC and cable TV is totally out of the picture until then. Vittoria. "Crucinxus from the J.S.
