    Cyclones.tv Question

    Sorry to start this thread already, but can anyone tell me, I purchased Cyclones.tv last year when I live in Sioux Falls, SD. I have since moved back to Ankeny and am wondering if I need to purchase it again. The reason I ask is because last year I did not get a lot of the Men's bball games that were on local TV. Will I be able to catch all the games on channel 5 like the old days, or should I renew my subscription?

    TIA for your information.

    You will likely need it for several non conference games, but you should get all the others.

    If you have Mediacom you will not need cyclones.tv. Mediacom carries cyclone.tv broadcasts. If you don't have Mediacom you will need cyclones.tv to see the non-conference games they are no longer on channel 5.

    This is why I asked about Cyclones.tv. I think that I will just end up getting it, because I have Directv.

    The Mediacom channel will reduce the benefit for live broadcasts. But I still plan on keeping it for the radio feeds, press conferences, and ability to rewatch stuff.

    Re: Cyclones.tv Question

    I don't think anyone ever posted this article which I found through Ubben's blog one day. Has some good information on the delay that Mediacom has in forming the separate ISU channel. ISU: Cyclone TV channel experiencing technical difficulties | Ames Tribune. Since I have DirectTV I am definitely keeping it but my internet at home sucks so I'll probably have to come in to work to view the games.

    I have it at home. I run a cable from my laptop to my 65" HD plasma and it's awesome!

    The condensed replays are my favorite feature. You can watch a football game less than 40 minutes.

    Re: Cyclones.tv Question

    I watched a lot of basketball games on it, but the whole family enjoyed wrestling and volleyball games as well. I hardware my laptop into my tv as well via hdmi and the HD is awesome.

    The interviews and practice are fun for preseason.

    Cyclone Feud episodes during the Tailgate Tour are actually pretty entertaining also.
