    I'm a Web TV neophyte, or worse. Whatever you need, I hope you get!

    NeuLion was mentioned in context of some 100 similar schools doing programming. Is that not something, to be No. 2? (Heck, I don't know what NeuLion is, maybe its lineup isn't much? . . .)

    I guess this means mediacom's price will go up.

    Mediacom's prices always go up...might as well be for something we are actually interested in.

    Or, go up at a greater rate. The company seems to boost its rates whenever it feels like it can get away with it. Kinda like health insurance premiums. I'm not a happy Mediacom customer. But, now with the new ISU access. . . .

    Re: Announcement is here: It's Mediacom

    I'm sure it has been posted but I will say it again because people still seem to be complaining. If you think you need to switch to Mediacom to get ISU games or you live out of state, just keep your current TV provider and subscribe to Cyclones.TV for $80/year. Problem solved.

    Edit: And if you would rather watch it on a TV screen than your computer screen, get an HDMI cable to hook it up to your TV.

    Re: Announcement is here: It's Mediacom

    This is a good step forward, but the build up on this, comparing to the Big 10 and other deals that other schools were doing, I have to admit, this is a bit of "Ho-Hum" news. This is exactly what I expected it to be, but I had hopes for a lot more than this. Is it bad, no, definitely not, but it certainly doesn't do much to promote ISU athletics much outside of places that don't already have some access.

    I guess, on a positive note, we'll probably be in more houses now than the Longhorn Network. And if I lived in Iowa and had dish, I'd be switching to Mediacom.

    Re: Announcement is here: It's Mediacom

    "The Big 12 Conference has given individual schools the ability, like no other major conference in the country, to distribute their third-tier television rights and we are capitalizing on an opportunity that is unique to our conference," Pollard said. "Our relationship with Mediacom means that our Cyclones.tv content will be available to more than 500,000 additional viewers."
    So does this mean this is Mediacom nationwide and not just Mediacom Connections (Channel 22)??? That's not too bad at all!

    Re: Announcement is here: It's Mediacom

    Im not sure why people are disappointed about this, you still get the online streaming, so if you've been doing that nothing changes, at the very least this helps build the ISU brand within the state of Iowa. You gotta start some place, this is a small step but a step forward.

    #2 seems like a pretty good spot if you see what schools they have on there:
    NeuLion - Internet Television Technology Innovators (IPTV) - Company Information then click on College Sports


    Lots of smaller schools, but some bigger name ones too:
    -Arkansas
    -Colorado
    -Duke
    -LSU
    -Florida
    -Nebraska
    -A&M
    -Oregon

    I don't know what the usage is referring too exactly, but that's a pretty good list to be near the top of

    Yep. It's a win-win for ISU fans. Eventually this could spread into a nation-wide network if this step is hugely successful.

    If I read it correctly, starting Dec. 9th for the women's basketball game, Cyclones.tv will be on Mediacom Channel 22. This will be the channel for Cyclones.tv UNTIL early 2013, where we will have our own permanent channel.

    The Iowa State Athletics Department announced today that it has agreed to a five-year partnership with Mediacom to distribute programming, currently produced and aired on Cyclones.tv, across Iowa and into several bordering states via a fully dedicated Cyclone sports channel on Mediacom's cable television network.

    So not all of Mediacom's states but the midwestern ones for sure.

    This. ALMOST EVERYTHING I have watched on Cyclones.tv has been on my TV and not on my computer.

    What the AD needs to do next though is get this on Roku and XBox and then I wouldn't even have to use my computer at all.
