    Can we get IPTV to pick up CTN?

    I'm watching the ISU / Minn. wrestling meet in what appears to be high def. If we can get this quality of picture for a IPTV broadcast of a wrestling meet, why do we have 1980's quality picture of basketball? Just asking.

    I agree the broadcast is horrible.

    Seems like all the Full Court broadcasts are awful. The Creighton game on Comcast SportsNet or whatever it was called was bad today, too.

    Does IPTV's wrestling coverage have that much more money than CTN that they can afford HD equipment, but CTN can't? I know that it takes a couple more cameras to cover basketball, but IPTV has at least two if not more going.

    With the new scoreboard at JTS, the university is going to have to but some HD cameras. Maybe Hilton and CTN will get to use them next year?

    The title of the thread is, "Can we get IPTV to pick up CTN?". Yes we can, if we donate enough money to IPTV, and make it clear to IPTV that we are donating this money to pick up CTN.

    If you are asking the question, "Why is CTN coverage antiquated?", the answer again is money. There is a reason why there are only 5 or 6 stations that make up the CTN. Ten years ago, there were many more stations, but as those local stations were unable to get sponsors (or advertisters) to pony up money, that number of stations shrank. KIMT in Mason City used to carry some CTN games, and some UI games. When the local money to help carry those broadcasts disappeared, so did the coverage.

    Charities almost always have better "stuff" than comparable private businesses. They don't have to pay taxes.

    Maybe because they're the only D-1 school in the state.

    CTN is its own entity, separate from Athletics/Jack Trice/Hilton.

    that's a joke... how much would the ~6 cameras + any other necessary equipment cost? 100k? I have a hard time believing they haven't been able to come up with that over the past 4-5 years

    IPTV is also down to doing maybe 5 matches per year.

    They use those HD cameras for a multitude of other events, too.

    The university can't let CTN borrow them at Hilton?
