    ISU-Iowa football game broadcast on Versus network

    At 12:30. Never heard of this network before. Sounds like it is going to have a deal with the Big 12.

    Re: ISU-Iowa football game broadcast on Versus network

    It used to be OLN. It is part of the Mediacom basic cable package and it's really not a bad channel. I wonder who they will have announcing football games?

    I think they're showing several Big 12 and Pac 10 games next year. Defnitely not as widespread as ESPN but still some national coverage (sort of) for the game.

    Well, any TV is better than no TV. I'm just sad a bigger audience won't be watching when we win.

    Where did you hear this at? I don't see any press releases anywhere.

    Woo hoo, now this channel might be worth while for something other than my NHL fix.

    Re: ISU-Iowa football game broadcast on Versus network

    Wow. I don't like this at all. After watching the NHL playoffs on the network, I wasn't impressed. Their announcers are boring and uninformed. If you thought Gottfried was bad last year, you'll hate who VS throws in the booth. Look out for more mispronounced names, interspersed with shots of barns and cornfields.

    In fact, that might be a fun little game in the run up to ISU v. UI. Who's name will be mangled more? Ten bucks says that someone pronounces Milan Moses' name like the Italian city.

    Where are you getting this information from? I have a hard time believing ESPN+ wouldn't be picking up the Iowa vs. ISU game with Big 10 implications and all.

    Re: ISU-Iowa football game broadcast on Versus network

    I kinda find it hard to believe that, specially with how it has gone the last few years that abc regional wouldn't be picking it up again. Aleast it is a station mediacom carries though not like it will matter for me.

    This does mean tailgaters can't watch, and Iowa may have hard time trying to pull off the Kinnick stunt.

    I have noticed Mediacom has a lot more sports channels available for the basic digital package now. They must be trying to compete with Direct?
    They need to step up there HD programming next.

    Why? Directv has worthless HD programming, they only have ESPN/ESPN2 in HD for sports. DSM locals are still not in HD and wont be until 2008, so there is no competition for them. Now, I still think mediacomm should up their HD programming to keep DTV honest.

    The fact mediacom doesn't even have TNT in HD pretty much says it all. I couldn't believe that.

    Re: ISU-Iowa football game broadcast on Versus network

    I have Versus here on Cedar Falls Utilities, it's an alright station, it's had a lot of hockey (not a big fan) but had some cool fights (especially this one weird league that is like the UFC, only with no ground fighting, which I think is boring)
