    ESPN3 Access in Hilton?

    Does anyone know if there is ESPN3 access in Hilton? I want to go to the women's game Wednesday night, but also keep an eye on and watch the men. Both are at the same time.

    If you are connected to the Iowa State network then yes you should be able to access it.

    Re: ESPN3 Access in Hilton?

    If you are talking about getting access on a computer to ESPN3 in Hilton, then yes, you could probably get it with access to the Iowa State internet. However, if you are wanting to get access on something like a smartphone, then you will need access to WatchESPN (different than ESPN3 access) on your smartphone and I'm guessing you don't have that access. In order to get WatchESPN access on your smartphone, you need either a Time Warner cable account, a Brighthouse Network account, or a Verizon Fios account. None of these are likely that you probably have. However, last fall, I remember that if you downloaded the WatchESPN app on your phone, you could get either 4 or 6 hours of a free preview of WatchESPN that started from the minute you downloaded it. That should be good enough to watch one game. I remember we used the free preview to watch football game on our way home from the ISU vs. Connecticut football game.

    Thanks for the info! I'm probably going to bring my computer so hopefully it will work.

    Or you can install a Playon server on a computer connected to an ISP that has ESPN3 - then use the Playon Mobile app on a phone to access the game.

    Is a person allowed to bring in a laptop in Hilton Coliseum?

    I doubt your going to get a good picture quality but give it a shot if they even let you bring your laptop in.
