    Another "What channel is the game on?" thread

    I have family stuff Saturday and can't go to the game. I'm getting nervous the KU-ISU game is not showing up in the guide on my TV or online. Was FCS not renewed in the new deal between Fox and DirecTV?

    Im sure you know you have to have the Sports Pack, but If I recall, it is usually on like 617, and typically does not show up on the guide until about 24 hours before kickoff.

    Re: Another "What channel is the game on?" thread

    I know for sure that I don't have FCS. Trying to decide if it's a "listen on CloneZone" game or a "try to find a sports bar with FCS" game.

    Beer is cheaper at my house than at the bar, though...

    I have the sports pack. That's good to know it usually shows up late and this is not unusual. Thanks.

    Just to be safe I'm going to setup manual records on both 617 and 623.

    Hopefully I can get a nice stream for this game. I don't want to go to the bar...

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    I don't have the sports pack on Directv, but have been able to watch every game that has been on the FCS channels. I just had to look through 30 different channels to see which one was available.

    Those are FSN channels, not FCS.

    There is an FCS HD channel on DirecTV but for some reason Big XII games are usually on the SD channels when they're on FCS.

    There's a great stream at 1800 South 4th Street Ames, IA. Seriously. Get your butts to the game! Much better than watching at home!

    Don't tell me to get my butt to the game. How about you go work for my wife and pay for a baby sitter and I'll go. Otherwise mind your own freaking business.
