Mediacom will pick it up so they can show games in this state, collect the advertising money, and not have to actually do anything besides pay a small fee.
    This is why Pollard is the AD and you - or I - aren't. The University essentially created it's own little network. This isn't Fox Sports sending out cameras and crews to cover Iowa State athletics. This is about pushing content to a different level. It's going to happen with all BCS schools eventually. I would suggest to you that Pollard is at the forefront of deals like this. To say it's not FS in some fashion is naive. The Big 12 could have channels in the works with DirectTV. As long as we push the content up it's not that far fetched. Who knows.

    I think we're partnering with ESPN and creating a real "The Ocho!" Ok, so probably FSN.


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    FSN-Oklahoma started this year because of 3rd tier rights, FSN Kansas City started because of Royals baseball, so a new FSN channel is not as far of a stretch as one might think, or a partnership with with FSN-Midwest and FSN-KC, or even FSN-North could be added to the mix.

    There isn't a ton of area specific programming on those channels, it's a coaches show, replay, olympic sports live, and then Fox national or paid programming.

    I agree with this. Fox Sports has already taken advantage of Cyclones.tv content during half time of an ISU volleyball game on FSN. They showed around a five minute segment produced by Cyclones.tv on Kristen Hahn. They even pretended like it was their content by thanking the Cyclones.tv reporter by her name when they came back to the half time show.

    Iowa State is the only state school FSN has an existing relationship with. Holy crap, dude.

    FSN is not the most likely scenario, in my opinion, but your reason for suggesting it's not is as ludicrous as the reasons some are suggesting it is.

    This seems like a good candidate to me.

    Exactly. Insert Iowa for Kansas everywhere in that story (and names) and you have our press release. Or we're going to Mediacom.

    They might want to change part of this sentence before issuing a press release:
    up to 20 women’s basketball, baseball and volleyball games,
    On second thought leave it alone and let some people get their hopes up.

    Re: Announcement coming: "Cyclones.TV is the real deal"

    A Fox Sports distribution deal would be great with North, Midwest, KC and FCS all picking up some of the content. Fox Sports created a San Diego stand alone channel simply as a result of picking up the Padres. There are over 1 million more people in Iowa than in San Diego County, so it is not beyond the realm of possibility that Fox Sports-Iowa could exist to show content specific to Iowa State, the I-Cubs, national feeds (ie. Big 12 & Pac 12 football/basketball) and possibly some combo of Royals/Cardinals/Twins content (though that may largely be a pipe dream). It could possibly include some UNI/Drake content as well. Comcast sports might also be a possibility, since I believe a lot of Iowa homes get Comcast Chicago. Mediacom would be ok and at least keep basketball in front of the casual Iowa based fan (something Cyclones.tv standing alone doesn't do), but not as good for out of staters like me who can pick up Comcast/Fox Sports regionals by buying a sports pack. The number of hours, $$$ and exposure are the three important components that I am sure Pollard is all over.

    Has Cyclones.tv always been HD? I noticed this weekends games are in HD.

    Cyclones.tv---yes, always been HD (for its year of existence)
    CloneZone---No, I don't believe that it was HD.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!
