    Chicago Gamewatch

    Anyone know if the Iowa Iowa vs. State game is going to be available in Chicago? Our FSN here is Comcast Sports, which is playing the Cubs game instead. Local Fox channel is showing infomercials. Anyone know of Bars that will have it. I'm in the Schaumburg area. Would a Dish be able to pick up the FSN feed from another town? I've checked every channel and do not see the game on anywhere.

    It will be on FSN, which you can order for $8.95 per month and then cancel it. I am oredering it tomorrow, unless I can find Comcast plus which is supposed to be airing it. The Bar Fizz on Lincoln/Belmont also carries the games. Good brats too.

    I just looked and it is not up yet. Don't worry too much, it takes them time to update the listings. Also, they will use 100 and 285 to show the alternate program. I will be calling, and will let you know what I find out.

    Fox and Hound in Schaumburg is the gamewatch location for you.

    Is this on Dish? I have cable and already have the fox Sports package, but instead of FSN we get Comcast, which is the local FSN here, so I dont' think I have the option to order it.

    I don't see any Comcast + either. Been trying to find a channel for that.

    yes, corcoran's will also have the gamewatches this year in the back bar (along with fizz as mentioned). i'm not sure why fizz is advertized more on gamewatch emails but corcoran's was packed full for most games last year.

    Comcast uses 100 and 285, their info channel, to air if there is a conflict like a Cubs Game. May not pop up until game day however. I have comcast so FSN is an upgrade. You may already have the game.

    Re: Chicago Gamewatch

    The last couple of years I went to Fox and Hound in Aurora for gamewatches, but having since moved to Evanston I might have to give Fizz or Corcoran's a try.
    Anybody know which one is closer to Evanston? I'm on my phone and too lazy to do a mapquest.

    Re: Chicago Gamewatch

    I just found the game on Comcast Chicago channel CSN 420, and also on CSNBA or something like that. Looks to not be HD, but hey I will have the game so there goes.

    Fizz is closest to Evanston.

    Check out the Fox and Hound on Roselle Rd. in Schaumburg between Golf Rd. and I-90. Also check out the gamewatch website: Iowa State University Alumni Association - Gamewatch Guide for game watch locations and ISU Alumni Association Chicago website.

    Re: Chicago Gamewatch

    As previous posters stated, both Fizz and Corcoran's will have the games on.

    The bar for the Iowa game is always packed with Clones. It will be tons of fun if the Clones can pull it off this year!!

    I have to work Saturday, but I'll probably be at Fizz for at least a few this year. I made it to 3 or 4 there last year.
