    Iowa, UNLV Telecasts

    All right, I know that Jeremy posted it, but I haven't seen a discussion. So here we go. The Iowa and UNLV games are slated for telecast:

    Release: 07/02/2008
    AMES, Iowa – Iowa State’s Sept. 13 football game at Iowa will kickoff in Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City at 11 a.m. CDT and be televised on the Big Ten Network. The Big Ten Network is channel 220 on DIRECTV. The Big Ten network is channel 439 on the Dish Network. Fans should check with their cable or satellite provider for game availability.
    Iowa State’s game at UNLV Sept. 20 will kickoff at 8 p.m. CDT and be televised on the The Mtn., the Mountain West Conference’s television network. The Mtn. is available on DIRECTV’s Choice and above packages for viewers in Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah and Wyoming plus the markets of Dallas/Fort Worth and San Diego. Customers throughout the remainder of the country will be able to access The Mtn. with a subscription to DIRECTV’s SportsPack.

    Now, I don't mind the BTN since we have the Dish Network, but what the heck is The Mtn? Am I going to have to head to my nearest sports bar (or to W.A.S.) to catch this game?

    So, despite everyone criticizing the BTN, the Mountain West is going ahead with the same thing--only, so far DirectTV is the only system picking it up?

    I think the Mtn has actually been around longer than the BTN - the difference being the cable companies in the MWC states actually bought into the system whereas the cable companies in the Big 10 states didn't...
