    Big XII Network!

    Sorry if this has already been posted, but I didn't realize that the Big XII created a "network" of stations to broadcast all bball games throughout the Big XII region. These are not separate stations like the Big 10 network, but it's a good start.

    2008-09 Big 12 Network Television Station List - Big 12 Conference - Official Athletic Site


    WOI (abc in Des Moines) will be carrying ALL ISU conference games, along with other stations throughout the state. To me this is great news!!

    Re: Big XII Network!

    Good deal, I really hope they get their own channel too.. although I have no idea how the Big 10 network doesn't go broke.. they never air commercials, just the same 5 30 second to 1 minute clips of big 10 moments or previews of upcoming games.

    Re: Big XII Network!

    Hopefully in HD because those broadcasts are horrible on WOI

    Re: Big XII Network!

    Isn't this basically the old ESPN regional network? The Big East does the same thing for basketball.

    Re: Big XII Network!

    Pretty nice venture out into Big Ten country, and a little bit into SEC land. The only other area I would like to have seen with some broadcast coverage would be a little Pac-10 country (maybe AZ or NM), but that's probably pushing the geographic envelope...

    Re: Big XII Network!

    pretty sure that the ISU-UNLV football game this past season was on "big 12" network also.

    Re: Big XII Network!

    They just renamed the ESPN regional network to the Big XII network.

    Essentially nothing else changed. There is 0 change from last year aside from the name.

    ISU-UNLV was on the MTN, which is the Mountain West's network.

    Re: Big XII Network!

    Hopefully the next step will be streaming all BigXII games like the BTN does. Eventually I think there will be a BigXII channel. I just hope that they introduce it better than the Big10 did.

    I don't remember if all the ISU conference games were broadcast last year, were they?

    No, and the release says nothing about them all being available this year either.

    What it does say is that regionally syndicated games will be available on ESPN Plus, which has been rebranded the Big XII network. That's no different than last year.

    Menís Basketball Television FAQ - Big 12 Conference - Official Athletic Site

    So, chances are, ISU will be on WOI about the same as it was last year.

    Re: Big XII Network!

    I think jumbo is right that it's up to any of these individual stations to pick up what they want. The way I read the schedule some of the games won't even be available and are only on the Cyclone network instead of the Big 12.
    Basketball (M) - Schedule - Iowa State University Athletics Official Web Site - www.CYCLONES.com - Iowa State Cyclones Sports

    On a plus note (I guess) I'm getting ISU-Texas here in Kansas this weekend.

    According to the FAQ, there will only be 32 games total broadcast on the Big XII network. The rest of them will belong to other ESPN networks (ESPN/ESPNU/ESPN360 etc) to broadcast nationally. It is up to the local station (WOI) to determine if it wants to carry any of those games. It's likely that whatever games ISU is in that are cleared for the Big XII network will be carried, but it's certainly no guarantee that ISU will be on WOI for all it's conference games.

    Rights to any games not broadcast nationally (ESPN) or regionally (Big XII network) belong to ISU and can be produced and broadcast if the school so desires (i.e. Mediacom connections, or some sort of Cyclone TV network).

    According to the FAQ, that is not accurate.

    Only games picked up by ESPN will be on ESPN360. There are also further restrictions on how many times a team can appear on ESPN360 according to the FAQ (it doesn't elaborate though).
