    State of the Union alters coverage of ISU-OU game

    AMES, Iowa—President Obama’s annual State of the Union address on Wednesday (Jan. 27) has caused stations across the Big 12 Network to change their coverage of the Iowa State-Oklahoma men’s basketball game.

    WOI Des Moines/Ames in Central Iowa will televise Obama’s speech on its primary station 5.1 and will carry the ISU-OU game live on its subcarrier digital channel 5.2. The game will tip at 8 p.m.

    Other stations in Iowa telecasting the game are WBQD (Davenport), KPTH-44.2 (Sioux City) and Mediacom connections channel 22 in the following areas: Cedar Rapids/Waterloo/Cedar Falls/Dubuque/Iowa City.

    The game is also available on ESPN360 (subject to blackout in certain areas) and ESPN Full Court. Go to ESPN360.com for coverage information.

    Re: State of the Union alters coverage of ISU-OU game

    I worried about that when I saw the day the State of the Union was announced. I'm glad to see woi is putting it on 5.2. Here's hoping they don't screw it up.


    "Blamo"! The new CF approved swear word.

    Get a digital antenna / receiver if you live in Iowa.

    If your internet carrier is not work on 360 have someone with Mediacom or an approved internet provider set up a 360 account for you with remote access.

    Re: State of the Union alters coverage of ISU-OU game

    Why do the local stations feel the need to show this. There will be at lest 10 channels all showing the same thing. You'd think that if the station were smart they'd show something else. That wold be huge for their ratings. Even if a majority of the people want to watch this, which I highly doubt, they would be spread out to so many channels that you're ratings will be terrible. If your priority is to get ratings the best thing to do is show your normal programming.

    I have always thought this myself, I wonder if they are "required" to air it?
