    Mountain West Conference can be seen on Directv

    The Mountain West Conference just reached a deal with directv to broadcast games from their conference. Hopefully this Big 12 network will start soon.

    The Mountain West? Seriously? Will that many people really watch it?

    This network already existed and it probably cost DirecTV next to nothing to pick it up. The conference is probably just happy with the publicity. DirecTV looks at it as just one more thing to tell customers about.

    I'll watch it.

    It may mean another game on national TV for ISU next year, as we play UNLV.

    I will, I watch the big10 network now. Big12 football package just plain sucks!

    No, it really really doesn't. I would wager it's better than anything except the Big 10's (or MAYBE the Pac-10, though the Pac-10 has mitigating circumstances in that they play their games way later than anyone else and it makes it easier to schedule coverage because there are fewer games to compete against). I bet it compares very favorably to the SEC's package.

    Unfortunately ISU's coverage is spotty because we are more like Mississippi State in the SEC than LSU.

    Agree. The two WORST teams in the Big 12 last year had 5 of their 8 conference games on TV.

    [8 - KU/OU/UT; 7 - CU/MU/OSU/A&M; 6 - KSU/NU/TT; 5 - ISU/BU]

    40 of the 48 total games (83%) were televised. Not bad for a league that doesn't have its own dedicated network.

    [40 games = 80 spots: 41 South appearances, 39 North appearances]

    Interesting breakdown, thanks for sharing.

    Re: Mountain West Conference can be seen on Directv

    I was looking at the link there for the iowa game. Since 3 other teams are slated for abc or epsn/2 from the big ten, does that pretty much assure it will be on the big 10 net?

    Re: Mountain West Conference can be seen on Directv

    I would love to see us reach some kind of semi-exclusive deal with Versus or Spike or something. Have two games a week on there plus coaches shows and a big XII recap show. Throw them some basketball, baseball, women's basketball games and really help fill there programming withought having the Big XII have to go out and start their own network...
