    I guess something has to fill that channel 6 spot now that Sinclair went naughty. I'm just glad it isn't UI basketball. YES!

    Edit: Another good job by JP getting this game on TV. Good job guys!

    Now the question is whether or not it will be worth watching.

    I don't see it on the ESPN Full Court schedule. What a bunch of crap!

    Just got off the phone with Directv. Refreshing to talk to someone who had a clue. He told me the game would be blacked out due to zip code restrictions. When you see the game is on Fox Sports SW, don't buy into it. I'm pretty sure that unless you are in Texas (or Iowa), you won't be getting the game on Directv. Frustrating that it got dropped by ESPNU.

    Hopefully something can be done in the future regarding the zip code restrictions. I have a problem with the fact that the game will be on television and, although I subscribe to ESPN Full Court and the Fox Sports package, I won't get the game. Seems unfair.

    Well, don't quote me on this, but I'm pretty sure that if you are not in the Fox SW market, the game will be blacked out (on Directv). I'm hoping I'm wrong.

    Jeremy says that it will be on Mediacom Channel 6.

    For those on Iowa State's campus, Channel 6 is Fox because ISU cut a deal with them to get the channel back. What does that mean for us?

    Mediacom Connections is channel 22 in Des Moines. Is that the same as Channel 6 in Ames(for ISU campus?).

    Has anyone with the Fox Sports package with DISH Network checked to see if it will be blacked out there as well? The next question is what bars in Des Moines still have Mediacom that will show the game. Most of them have some kind of dish package anymore...

    On dish network it is on channel 445 but if you look at the info it has a blackout icon on there. At least it did last night. Wonder if Trophy's will have it on.

    From A&M site:
    Satellite TV subscribers: All Texas TV markets on FSN Southwest alternate channel (DirecTV Ch. 667 & Dish Network Ch. 445).
    The Texas A&M/Iowa State basketball game will be shown by FSN Southwest IN PARTS OF THE STATE OF TEXAS ONLY.

    Out west.
    My dishnetwork on screen quide shows it on channel 445 ALT. When you select the game a message says "not available in your area". (I live in NW Iowa) I have Full Court. Is it blacked out because Mediacom bouight the rights in Iowa?

    I guess I'm still confused...is mediacom channel 22 the same as channel 6? I live in SE Iowa and I have 22.

    Another question, I have digital cable but my mediacom channel 22 never shows what is on, does this work for other people?
