    ESPN Full Court

    Has anybody ordered this in the past? This is the first year that I have not renewed my Basketball tickets. I thought I would pickup full-court to make sure I get most I-State games. I have Dish Network, would the games be blacked out if mediacom connections has the game? I'm in polk county. Thanks for any help.

    Re: ESPN Full Court

    I get it every year, since I'm out of state. I can't help you with the blackouts, but I will say that there are only 2 or 3 games before January, when you can get the "2nd Half" plan for $75. So basically, you're paying about $25 for 3 games at the beginning of the year.

    Re: ESPN Full Court

    well ive had this in the past, and all i can say is if the game isnt on ESPN or our local channel 5, its probably not on full court...

    Re: ESPN Full Court

    If you are in Polk County, you should get all the ISU games on the local channel showing them, Full-Court would be blacked out. You may be able to get away games if they are not being shown locally, but I think you'll feel you wasted the money if you aren't interested in anyone besides ISU.

    Re: ESPN Full Court

    There are 19 games listed for ESPN FullCourt this season.

    15 conference games (all but Kansas, which is on regular ESPN).
    4 nonconference home games (MVSU, JSU, SDSU, SIU-E).

    Re: ESPN Full Court

    The amazing part of this thread is that we are 5 posts in and not one person has started blasting you for selling ISU out and not reupping your MBB tickets. Normally that is what would happen

    Re: ESPN Full Court

    It costs about the same as the cheap season tickets per game. $5/game

    Re: ESPN Full Court

    Being in Polk County, almost all of the ISU games are going to be available to you on local TV, ESPN, FSN, or Big 10 Network (Iowa game), and you probably get all of those in your Dish Network package.

    Only four games will be on Mediacom Connections (and they will also be on Full Court--I don't think they'd be blacked out)...

    Mississippi Valley State
    Jacksonville State
    South Dakota State
    SIU-Edwardsville

    Personally, I'm not that upset about missing those.

    The only thing I'm not sure about is the games on ESPNU (Oregon St. and Drake). Do you get that with Full Court or do you have to have a different sports package? Heck, get single game tickets for those two and you'll be set.

    Re: ESPN Full Court

    If I remember correctly from last year, you have to subscribe to the appropriate channel package to get ESPNU on Dishnetwork to get those games.

    Re: ESPN Full Court

    Get the half-season package for the conference games, which should be available in late December/early January. You pay half the price and actually get the games on TV. It's not worth it to shell out the whole price and only get 4 games in the first half of the season. Wait until the end of the year before you get this.

    I have the absolute cheapest package available and don't get any of the channels bolded and underlined, I thought I could get around uping my package by buying full court.

    No ESPN even? I didn't think that was possible with Dish.

    The only games you'll get with Full Court are the ones you'll be able to get on OTA TV anyway--except for those four non-conference games on Mediacom.
