    Re: Announcement is here: It's Mediacom

    What's the point of me keeping my online subscription if I have Mediacom?

    I highly doubt it with online streaming of Cyclones.tv available.

    FSN would not provide a ISU-dedicated outlet. Also, the Regional FSNs in and around Iowa are currently too fragmented.

    The entire appeal of this banks on HD

    If I stay in the area I will be getting Mediacom because of this deal, I wouldn't have said that an hour ago.
    This is very true, I doubt FSN would have allowed ISU to continue the online package option.

    I like it. I love it if it is going to be HD.

    No HD per JP on twitter

    Bobby La Gesse ‏@BobbyLaGesse
    ISU AD Jamie Pollard said the Cyclone sports channel on Mediacom will not be in HD.

    Bobby La Gesse ‏@BobbyLaGesse
    ISU chose to go the non-HD route b/c it allowed the channel to get into more homes.

    No HD just ruins it. If you can't so something without half-assing it, don't do it at all.

    Re: Announcement is here: It's Mediacom

    Too much build-up for something that doesn't impact me at all.

    Meh.


    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”

    Re: Announcement is here: It's Mediacom

    Being on Mediacom makes sense to me, more widespread in Iowa than FSN is. But not being in HD is just a joke.

    I would guess Mediacom will add it to their on-demand content. Just a guess, but there's a lot of local sports programming now that is on their on-demand menu so it would seem to make sense they would follow suit with the Cyclone.TV content too.
