    Basketball Television Options

    So this is my first year in eastern Iowa with both DirectTV and CenturyLink. In the past I've lived in Central Iowa and have had no problem getting most games on ABC5 or Mediacom when we still subscribed to their service.

    For those of you in Eastern Iowa, do any of the local channels regularly cover Iowa State games? If not, has anyone purchased ESPN Full Court before? Does that pick up most Iowa State games? Are many blacked out?

    Just trying to figure out my best option to catch as many games as possible-- any advice would be appreciated.

    Last year's schedule to see how many are on ESPN FC:

    Basketball (M) - Schedule - Iowa State University Athletics Official Web Site - www.CYCLONES.com - The home of Iowa State Cyclone Sports

    Pretty sure if you buy the package there is no black outs on it. You are paying to have access to all the games.

    On CenturyLink's facebook page they say they are negotiating with ESPN3 right now. I'm having a hard time deciding if I should just get FC or wait and see what happens.

    Interesting. Looks like FC picks up conference games, for the most part, so it might be worth waiting a while.

    Re: Basketball Television Options

    Last year the majority of our games were on ESPN3. Is that going to be the case this yr as well?

    A lot of games were on the Mediacom Connections channel, as well (Ch. 22). I'd check that, as well. I caught a fairly high percentage of games on there last year.

    Here are the games that ESPN3 will have (I believe this is also ESPN Full Court)

    Lehigh
    Prairie View A&M
    Iowa
    Central Michigan
    Lipscomb
    Mississippi Valley State
    Texas A&M (1/4/2012)
    Mizzou (1/11)
    Kansas (1/14)
    Tech (1/21) - also on ESPN2
    Kansas (1/28)
    OK State (2/7) - also on ESPN2
    A&M (2/11)
    OU (2/18)
    Kansas State (2/29)
    Mizzou (2/25)

    4 conference games do not have TV times listed on ESPN yet (they may be listed on Cyclones.com) and 4 conference games will be on ESPNU, those games are:

    Texas (1/4)
    OK State (1/18)
    Baylor (2/13)
    Tech (2/22)
