    No TV in Eastern Iowa for Insight

    KCRG just announced that their request to air the bowl game was denied. The NFL network said that it would only let WOI air the game because that is ISU's home market.

    Re: No TV in Eastern Iowa for Insight

    I wonder if this has something to do with Cedar Rapids having a local cable company (ImOn) that offers the NFL Network to its subscribers? I have DirectTV now...but when I had cable...I preferred ImOn over Mediacom easily!

    sadly ImOn hardly covers half of the CR metro area.

    That's kind of BS. CR is only 2 hours from Ames. People in Eastern Iowa should be e-mailing the NFL Network and the Insight Bowl reps and ********.

    Re: No TV in Eastern Iowa for Insight

    Title is misleading....it is on TV everywhere on the NFL Network. If you don't have it, someone or someplace close does.

    No reason to complain although that is the sole purpose for many to frequent this board.

    Re: No TV in Eastern Iowa for Insight

    By all accounts I've heard, ImOn is vastly superior to Mediacom in both programming and customer service. Unfortunately, as someone pointed out, they don't cover the entire CR metro area. I think they are currently stuck with the territory where McLeod left off when they went bankrupt. I did hear recently that they are expecting to start expanding again soon, but obviously this doesn't help anyone right now.

    So basically your home market is the area that you could ride your bike to in an afternoon and thats it?

    In fairness, Iowa's home market would be the eastern side of the state...
