    Hope for Local TV Coverage of Insight Bowl?

    According to Wikipedia, last year's Insight Bowl between Kansas and Minnesota was simulcast on the local Fox affiliate in Kansas City and shown for free on Comcast cable in the Twin Cities.

    Since Mediacom doesn't carry NFL Network, maybe we can count on one of the local stations in DSM to simulcast the game?

    I could see the NFL Network doing this. The network is subsidized with Thursday Night Football anyway.

    NFL Network did the same thing when Rutgers played in the Texas bowl a few years ago

    Or you could just get a dish package and kill 2 birds with 1 stone by dropping MediaCrap.

    Go to a bar or a friends house. This pisses me off when they do stuff like this. Not fair to the dish network/direct tv users who actually PAY for it.

    Re: Hope for Local TV Coverage of Insight Bowl?

    Well, if this does happen, I could get lucky. I doubt Mason City would be able to get it, but I might get lucky with Albert Lea/Austin/Rochester stations maybe showing it.

    Or FSNorth buys it and shows it.

    But driving down to Ames for a bowl party sounds better.

    Sure would be a lot easier for the people who can't do that--not to mention a lot cheaper for everybody--if a local TV station simulcast it.

    For the record, I have DirecTV and NFL Network. I'm just looking out for my fellow Cyclone fans.

    I agree. They did the same thing here in Chicago when the Bears were on the NFL Network. It ****** me off.

    They allow a local broadcast in the home cities of NFL teams for the Thursday night games, I would like to think they'll do this for the bowl as well.

    The NFL has a rule that all games must be carried on free, over-the-air TV in the participating teams' markets (as long as the game is sold out). Monday night games on ESPN are subject to the same rule.

    I would imagine any local TV station that picks it up would announce it pretty quickly. WOI would be the first logical choice, but since WOI is rarely logical it could be anywhere.

    Wrong. Dish Network gets it too!

    Go to a friends, if you have one. If not, find a bar.
