    Games on TV

    Whats with very few games not being on regular TV? I got hooked on ISU basketball as a kid because it seemed most games were on TV. Now the Drake and UNI game are not even viewable, unless you are one of the few that have medicom. I can see where 5 doesnt want them but why not 5.2 or why not have them on a Fox sports midwest. I guess the quicker the Big 12 gets a network going the better.

    Re: Games on TV

    As the season progresses more and more games will be on tv, it just a matter of who we are playing right now and most of them arn't real good with the exception of UNI...

    If you were WOI would you pre-empt the primetime shows during sweeps month for a bad basketball game?

    Speaking of TV coverage I see the Drake game is on Mediacom. Does anyone know if it will be shown on any of the Dish Network Channels?

    Re: Games on TV

    I hate mediacom. Their channel has been ruining my sports viewing time a little more each year. I like directv too much to switch to mediacom. The more games that are shown on that channel, the more ISU accepts them as a valid tv broadcast. At least it is somewhat televised, yes. However, if mediacom didn't pick up these games, I have a feeling someone else would have.

    I completely agree with kingcy. I became an ISU basketball junkie because of the game broadcasts that used to play on channel 5.

    They are just royally horrible in every other way. I won't pay for Mediacom AND Dish network (sorry all you DirecTV lovers -- Dish is cheaper, has better receivers, and is close enough in sports packages). So I tend to agree -- the more that Mediacom gets, the less I get to see.


    May my postings be polite and not misunderstood. (And hopefully funny on occasion.)

    I have Mediacom because of ISU basketball. I have the same choices as you. I made mine. I cancelled my satellite install when I saw the schedule. More TV would be great but we haven't earned it. Until then I'm thankful for Mediacom's low def ISU games.

    If I am not mistaken all of the mediacom games except for drake have been picked up by the ESPN Full Court package.

    Mediacom is a terrible company, and I have never heard one good thing about it.

    Same here. I have mediacom pretty much for ISU reasons. Not just basketball but the coaches show and replays of all football games...a few womens games as well I think.

    I hate mediacom pretty much as much as anyone but hey, they support ISU more than anyone.

    This is true...I have Directv and purchased Full Court so the only game I cant see (Drake) on Directv that you can see on Mediacom, I will be going too.
