    The ISU at KU MBB game will be on ESPNU for the Eastern half of the U.S. starting at 6 p.m. Central. It will be blacked out on ESPN3.com for the Eastern part of the U.S. The game will be on both ESPNU and ESPN3.com in the Western half of the U.S. at the same time. Check the blackout map on ESPN3.com to see where you can view it.

    The ISU WBB game at Baylor will be on Channel 173 Mediacom (FCSC) Wednesday night at 7 p.m. Central. I'm not sure about the other carriers.

  4. Ugh. Maybe a bar will carry it. Thanks for posting this.

    Is there any way to change the ticker at the bottom of the page to basketball? Sorry if this is posted elsewhere.

    See if they're still selling that 2 for $50 package and road trip. That's what we're doing :smile:

    Last year I was able to stream from my 360 to tv. I'm sure I probably can't do that then huh

    ESPNU is the channel for several games. Hopefully ESPN3 isn't blacked out for all of them.

    That's what I do for ESPN3, but it looks like it won't work this time.

    From that link, I believe it will be blacked out for all of them. Under the map, it mentioned that ESPN3 is now a network dedicated to original programming. Things we used to watch on ESPN3 are possibly available on WatchESPN.

    I don't think we'll see anything broadcast on ESPN3.

    What is strange though is that if you look at the map......half the country will still get it on ESPNU and ESPN3.com. I guess I don't understand why the Western part of the country can still get it online and the rest can't.
     
  13. I hope you're wrong; that's such a raw deal for fans.

    FAQ on WatchESPN.http://espn.go.com/watchespn/faq#faq2

    I missed it when this happened. It seems new to me. Probably a few months ago, but I wasn't paying attention to much in August.

    I think there are 3 levels..starting at like 7.95/month up to 17.95/month. I got the middle one for like 13.95 per month. I think ESPNU might be available on the first level, but I'm not sure. Best thing to do is just call them.

    If its 8 dollars a month ill definitely look into it. I assume a majority of our conference games will be on ESPN U correct?

    Unless you have someone from this list of providers, looks like you don't have WatchESPN:

    WatchESPN FAQ

    Interesting to see VerizonFIOS on there. Between this and the LHN, they are all in with ESPN.

    Not according to the schedule. Six are on ESPNU. Eight will be on Big 12.....whatever that means. Two will be on ESPN2. One will be on ESPN, and one will be on ESPN or ESPN2. Not sure where the Big 12 tourney will be brodcast.

    Does anyone know what it means when it just says "Big 12" for tv cooverage?

    I believe Big 12 means local affiliate. Which would be ABC in Des Moines and Ames.
