    Getting espn360 onto my TV

    Hi folks-

    I have espn360 and don't believe that ABC will be covering the game locally (Boston). I really don't want to watch the game on my computer. I have a white newer model MacBook, but it does not have an s-video out. It does look like it has some kind of monitor connector that I am unfamiliar with. Anyone know if there is a cord I can buy to connect this to my TV? Alternatively, is there an internet blueray player or something similar that can run espn360? I've been thinking about getting one of those anyway to watch Netflix streaming.

    Thanks!

    Eric

    Not sure about the cord but I know the XBox 360 now has espn3 on it as an app or something like that.. If you were considering one of them at all

    I think it might be on ESPN2, or ESPNU or something like that. Check your local listings.

    Game is on ESPN2. If it is on ESPN3, your 360 can make it work, assuming of course that you have one and a Gold membership to XBox Live.

    Yep ESPN2

    The cable you seek is probably a VGA cable....
    Perhaps DVI, and slim chance HDMI - it just depends on the option of your computer.

    I have HDMI on the laptop and love it! Comes in very handy.

    The above about ESPN2 will be your best bet but here is a link to the adapter you would need for a TV with an HDMI input.

    Re: Getting espn360 onto my TV

    I don't think the xbox and ESPN 3 will be up and running until November...My local HSI provider is the only in the country not providing it for me, so I may be wrong on that, someone else know anything different?

    Re: Getting espn360 onto my TV

    My laptop has a VGA connection and my tv does too. I bought a male-male VGA cable from Best-Buy and have watched Clonezone and ESPN360 on my TV with this method. I think most TV's don't have a VGA connection though.

    Re: Getting espn360 onto my TV

    Anyone want to explain how the ESPN360/Xbox works?

    I have a LIVE Gold account but am having trouble finding this on the Dashboard, where they usually pimp everything new. Is it not up yet?

    Re: Getting espn360 onto my TV

    Thanks for the responses all. I hope you are right that it is on ESPN2. How do you know? I just scrolled through to Saturday afternoon and it said TBD. I had previously done a programming search for Iowa and all that came up was the Kirk Ferentz show.

    It's on ESPN2 everywhere but the Midwest. Coverage maps.

    Re: Getting espn360 onto my TV

    Pretty sure ESPN3 and Xbox 360 aren't hooked up until November. Sorry for you guys out there who were hoping for it this weekend. The price of a Gold membership also jumps up around that time, as well.

    on a related note, I would think that our flurry of games on national TV to start the year should help us out immensely in the whole 'Big XII TV Revenue' plan.
