    Cool! 3 different FB game replays will be available on Cyclone.TV!

    I wonder how many caught John Walter's comment on the call-in show last night about game replays. He mentioned that there will actually be 3 different replays of most football games.

    One will be using the production of whatever entity did the original broadcast.
    A second will be with the Walters/Brun's radio call with video.
    A third will be a Mediacom/Cyclone.TV production using the camara crew they'll have at all the games (besides just the UNI game they are broadcasting). Essentially, you'll be able to watch another replay of the game from different camara angles.

    Starting to wonder if there is any need to DVR the live broadcasts.

    Anyway, it is all good for promoting the brand. Gotta think sports bars around the state will have a Cyclone game on at least one TV most of the time.

    There were multiple replays available last year, too.

    There have been replays for years but now they will be on a dedicated Cyclone channel available statewide in HD Secondly, (and correct me if I'm wrong) I doubt in the past if mediacom had a multiple camara crew producing a second production for the purposes of replaying the game. That will be new (at least that is the impression Walters gave).

    I looked into it a bit, thinking of subscribing to Mediacom just to get more games. You have to have a package that includes Cyclone.TV. I think the cheapest one is about $70 per month (including internet).

    Considering the channel isn't on air for more than a couple hours each night, not really.

    Well that is internet with basic cable. The only other package for tv that is lower is internet only and since your house is wired I or internet you get the basic local channels (that are free over the air). That is how they keep from paying for them (they dont charge for them).

    I looked into it too. Call them about basic cable only I think it is $40 or something. The internet is 29.99 (I have internet only at the bundled rate). If you get the family I package it is 49.99 I believe and includes cyclones tv and a comparable lineup to directs basic package and you get the on demand stuff. There isnt a contract now so they are trying the flat rate thing it seems.

    Last year there were three versions of every game available in Cyclones.TV. there was the network broadcast, a full version with the radio call and ISU cameras, and an edited version showing only the plays with the radio call and the ISU cameras. I am pretty sure the university makes it's own recordings of every game, which consists of primarily an elevated sideline view and elevated cameras in either end zone. At least that's what it appeared to me last year.

    Mediacom has nothing to do with it. They aren't sending their own crew to record the game. It's the feed from the video board.

    You can watch up to 4 different versions of games from 2012 on cyclones.tv -- full network broadcast, edited network broadcast, full video board broadcast (home games only), one-hour condensed replay. The only difference is now you can watch them on TV -- just like with all other cyclones.tv programming.

    That certainly wasn't clear in what Walter's said (at least to me). I stand corrected. Regardless, "the only difference" from prior year is a big difference and that is, you can now watch it on TV which means a much greater distribution and exposure.
