    Mediacom/ESPN Full Court coverage

    So...for TV coverage today was very confusing for me. First, today's game was not on the original Full Court schedule that I printed out, but then it shows up on today's TV guide. Then when I switch the channel to watch it, I don't get it, so when I talk to Comcast they tell me it's blocked out.

    Why would a game being played in Iowa be unavailable for me to watch at my condo in Steamboat Springs, Colorado? Isn't that why I got Full Court in the first place? Was the game blocked out in Iowa on TV as well?

    Not a big deal in the long run, since I did get to see most of the 2nd half on ESPN3.com, and it ended up being a blowout, but that whole thing leaves me confused.

    Huh, must be a Colorado thing then, since no one else seems to have had issues.

    My DVR said it was recorded but it wouldn't start after I hit play, ****** me off too. wtf it shouldn't have been blacked out, I think they just screwed it up.

    Same thing here in Chicago, supposed to be on but I can't get any FC games today. Comcast has no idea what the problem was.
