    What happened to ISU and ESPN's Full Court?

    My apologies if this has already been discussed in a previous thread. With a recent move to Michigan to start a new job my internet schedule has changed and I haven't had as much CycloneFanatic.com time recently.

    Anyway, does anybody know why none of our non-conference games are on ESPN's Full Court anymore? I do remember that the number of non-con games on Full Court was scaled back a bit last year, but there were still at least a few. Two or even three, four years ago almost all of our games were available through Full Court, whether Big 12 or not.

    It's not a huge deal. Every single conference game will be on TV through the ESPN platforms (a lot of our games are on the U) or Full Court during conference season, so if nothing else I'll probably get the half-season package, but the schedule is a dramatic departure from what used to be available. It would have been nice to see a few non-con games, even the ones against low-major competition.

    Cyclones.tv happened. Worth every penny and it actually makes the ISU AD money whereas ESPN FC/ESPN3 made no money.

    It would have been nice to see a few non-con games, even the ones against low-major competition.
    Cyclones.tv subscription.

    Re: What happened to ISU and ESPN's Full Court?

    Mediacom used to make the feeds for games they produced available for ESPN Full Court.

    Last year Mediacom installed a dedicated line to their production facilities and was no longer using satellites to carry the games, so once that happened there was no satellite feed for Full Court to pick up.

    This year, as someone already said, Mediacom isn't involved at all.

    Why wasn't the CBS feed for the Cincy game on Full Court?

    Because CBS is not interested in making ESPN money

    We live fulltime in our RV traveling the USA. Since we are in a lot of remote areas that have only 3g cyclone.TV does not work for me. I really miss the old full court days where I would miss only 2 or 3 games.
