    Cyclone.TV HD is up and running in Des Moines!

    OK....granted, as was mentioned in the Cedar Rapid's related thread, it is just a splash screen & music, but does get me pumped each time I see it as I glance at my channel guide or land on it as I'm scanning stations.

    Best part -- it is not burried in the HD section of Mediacom's digitial lineup. Instead, it is on 798 right before all the 800 HD stations (right before ABC5 on 805). VERY visible to any digital cable viewer.

    Here's the rundown: Iowa Tube Talk: Cyclones.tv Set To Launch On Mediacom

    I feel that this would be more awesome if I wasn't already going to every game that they broadcast.

    As am I, but I like knowing that it will be avialable for those that don't/can't but moreso looking forward to press conferences, coaches shows, "Cyclone Today", classic game replays. I know I'll take in some of the men's BB games this winter.

    Re: Cyclone.TV HD is up and running in Des Moines!

    Just got home from lunch and decided to flip on Cyclones.tv just to see if its running and I see John Walters doing an interview! Unfortunately no sound yet and the video is very jumpy but they are close to having it ready to go!

    Look at you Mediacom customers looking so smug for the first time since you've been subscribing. I'm actually a tad jealous. Lucky for me Iowa State invented the computer.

    Well…it is not like the homecoming queen finally said yes. But on the other hand, at least it doesn't feel as much like we're justifying having to dance with our step-sister anymore.

    Does anyone know what is going to be shown other than live events?

    "A six-week block of programming is already scheduled out. ISU is tinkering with its lineup to “make it the most coveted and fresh content we can,” Rutherford said.

    There will be a block of new ISU content, airing daily, likely in the evening.
    “Essentially take when people are going to be watching the channel most,” Rutherford said, “not during the work day, and set up our programming blocks for when people are going to be able to view it.”
    Original programming will include a “Cyclones.TV Today” newscast recapping the biggest stories of the day, an Olympic spotlight show and two different documentary-style shows centering on ISU sports icons and famous games called “Cyclones Classics” and “Cyclone Legends.”

    The channel will also air live press conferences, coaching shows and replays of classic games"

    Re: Cyclone.TV HD is up and running in Des Moines!

    Mediacom by far and away is the largest cable provider in Iowa and Cyclones.tv will be available in all 4 corners of the state and you can find out on what channel on your Mediacom line-up here

    Cant be viewed in most of SWI... Council Bluffs, which is probably Im guessing a top 10 market in the state, population wise, will never have it from what I am hearing.

    The bolded was taken from the Iowa media blog I linked to in my original post. garn91 is a member here (and the blog's author) . Maybe he'll defend (or revise) this claim.
