    Per Big12sports.com.

    Television Set For Oct 4 Games - Big 12 Conference - Official Athletic Site

    I know this was mentioned in the KU kickoff thread, but I think this deserves its own thread so that people don't post a hundred "Is the game on TV???" threads.

    For DirecTV, Versus is NOT part of the Sports Pack. You have to subscribe to at least the Choice Extra package to get it.

    For Dish, it looks like you have to have at least the America's Top 250 package.

    Not sure about Mediacom. Their website is not helpful. Anyone with Mediacom want to chime in with info?

    You get it with the basic plan (Channel 55) and I can't wait for the game! We haven't had a home game for a few weeks and I'm already missing Jack Trice.

    Versus isn't on direct TV? It's a pretty good channel with alot of Outdoors, sports, UFC-WEC and Hockey...

    Oh, and I hate kickoffs before noon.




    Golf is the only sport that should EVER be played before noon...

    If you check out the original post, Versus is on Direct TV, but it isn't in the sports pack, it is in one of the Choice programming packages with all of the general channels.

    It's on direct TV, but you need to have the choice extra package to get it, I think it's channel 605

    Woohoo! TV again!

    This might be a record for ISU. Only one game so far that hasn't been on national TV (SDSU).

    SDSU - FCS Central
    Kent State - not broadcast
    Iowa - BTN
    UNLV - MTN
    KU - Versus
    Baylor - ???? probably not broadcast, but who knows?

    Also, our record with games on Versus is 2-0, is it not?

    Actually, the FCS Central broadcast was on national television.

    Eh, I doubt this game gets on TV. You're probably looking at two of the worst teams in the Big 12 playing each other. Although, if we beat KU, who knows?

    That is correct. Beat Iowa and K-State last year.

    Fine with being on Versus...hate playing before noon...night games are so much better.

    TV doesn't matter if you are going to be at the game :wink:

    Love the TV exposure, hate getting up at 5:00 AM to get in my requisite 6 hrs of tailgating. Early bed time for me that friday.

    Not a fan of games at that time slot, especially at home - but - we're on TV and it's ISU football.

    So, I shall not complain. :)

    I like the early kickoff time, so I can watch the game before I have to go to work. The game will be on CFU, for all the Cedar Falls people.

    Yeah. I've seen teams play on the west coast that late, but never here.

    Wow, why would ABC choose Tech v KSU? Doesn't ABC get the first pick - if so you'd think they would want CU v Tx.

    That one's a typo. MU/NU is an 8:00 CT start.

    IF we get on TV the rest of the year, it will be the 11 or 11:30 start time. If no TV, 1pm.

    Book it.
