    Official NFL network sucks thread

    So I live in SE Iowa, decide to have some friends over for a 'bowl party' to watch the game. I've got WOI so I'm good to go right?

    Wrong.

    WOI is only showing the game in central Iowa, as in just DSM and Ames area. Why is this only today getting out today in the paper? Did I miss a something? A thread on here? Cause I've lived on this site for the last week and I've seen nothing.

    So now the party is off, we are scrambling to figure out where to watch the game and I officially hate the NFL network.

    I'm really wishing we'd have just gotten the Texas bowl!

    I recommend focusing your hate on mediacom... you'd be fine if you had satellite

    Re: Official NFL network sucks thread

    According to their website, it is on 5.1. Are they splitting their signal somehow (how would they even do that)?

    Are you out of WOI's market? I don't think they extend to SE ia anyway do they?


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: Official NFL network sucks thread

    Wait...so eventhough we get ABC5 here in SW Iowa(through Mediacom), I'm not going to be able to see the game since we're not in the Des Moines market?

    At least we have a backup plan...

    channelsurfing.net hook TV up as monitor audio to stereo system. My current plan to stick it to NFL Network.

    Re: Official NFL network sucks thread

    We got the NFL Network and WOI and we live in the Central Iowa area, so I think we will be good. (p.s. can't wait for the pre-game show on WOI)

    Yes - Even though we both get WOI as our ABC...we won't get the game.

    At this point I think I'm getting madder at ISU. They made a big deal of WOI getting the game and then said very little when a large portion of the actual WOI viewing base won't get the game.

    It's NFL Network's fault that cable companies won't pay the money to put them on the air? Sounds to me like if cable companies actually cared about what their customers wanted they'd get NFL Network on the air.

    I have DirecTV so I'm good to go, I have not paid attention to the whole thing. I just wish DirecTV still had versus so I could watch every possible ISU FB game.
