    Wow....I must have missed the boat on this. I don't give a damn how bad Mediacom is...and it's bad....this makes me a Mediacom customer as long as this is on. 24/7 Cyclones channel in HD?? Are you serious? ISU: Cyclones TV channel to air in HD | Ames Tribune

    Great news, hopefully they will have both the basketball and football games in HD. I am glad they are working to do it the right way.

    I knew it would happen eventually, but didn't think it would be this soon. Great news for the good guys.

    Would this just be in Iowa? I would love to get some Cyclone content when I'm at school.

    This soon? Once I saw this my thought was "it's about freaking time!!!" Glad it's here but Mediacom and Cyclones TV were both pretty tardy to the HD party.

    Dear god, thank you....as a cyclones.tv subscriber, nothing worse than having to watch crap in SD on my computer because of the Mediacom deal when I was used to watching in HD prior.

    This is great news but Mediacom is still a joke. I live in a new development in Johnston and they had no idea we existed. Rep wanted me to give him addresses of all the houses around me so he could take to his supervisor . I don't see them offering me service anytime soon.

    Pollard said this was in the works from the beginning. Excellent next step!

    Awesome!

    This is one of main reason still with Mediacom.

    Sidenote: I get a kick out of it when I'm in Menards or place like a home show and some DirectTV guy in a booth tries getting me to switch and I just keep saying I won't because they don't offer a dedicated channel for Cyclone sports. There are usually clueless when I mention this (which annoys me...any salesman worth their commission should know their competition) plus everyone on the planet should know what Cyclone.TV is! ;)

    This is not good news. Mediacom is horrible, so I would never want to be stuck with their service. Additionally, I live out of state so I'll need one of you fine gentlemen/ladies to stream all the HD games on Justin.tv

    I went through this a couple of years ago in Ankeny, too. We had a Medicom box in our backyard, and it still took me a couple of months to convince them that we were eligible for service. If Century Link internet hadn't been so miserable, I wouldn't have bothered.

    Yeah, gonna go with Ray on this one...I can sympathize with the cable cutters for the games that are on the national cable channels, since you're choosing not to pay the cable companies. But for the stuff on the mediacom channel, if you can't or don't want to get mediacom, there's still cyclones.tv, so if you're watching a stream, you're choosing not to pay ISU for their games, which is crap. $80 a YEAR, cough it up, cheaparse.

    I don't know much about them, but couldn't a local get a sling box dedicated to that channel and share it with those without Mediacom?

    Or you could help out the athletic department and get a Cyclones.tv subscription? $80 for a year! Is very good deal.

    The state of Iowa is considered 20 years behind the rest of the world in everything, so it happened pretty darn fast! :p
