    "Want to watch your Cyclones? Well, your carrier [see recent AT&T dispute] needs to pay us more per customer (certainly that won't be passed on to you...) and you need to pay us directly for our online service while you're at it."

    When you're picked ninth, you get the crap times.

    People like my parents will think twice and will be very disappointed on game day when looking for the game to watch on TV! This hurts exposure in many demographics...which is too bad! Lots of casual basketball fans would watch this game even if they weren't Iowa State fans! Now that won't happen as much. I became an Iowa State fan by changing the channel one day and stopped on a game that Iowa State was playing when Barry Stevens was on the team. Loved watching the game that day and have been a fan ever since. That won't happen now if these games are only on subscription streaming services.

    We have the same number of games on ESPN+ as Kansas and Baylor.

    It's almost like the inverse of teams most likely to want to leave the conference during realignment!

    I had a feeling this was going to happen. When the ESPN+ deal first came to light I tried to explain to people that it was not a good thing and was assured that the big games would be on regular espn channels and the only games on espn+ would be the ones that are on cyclonetv now. I took that as a win and moved on. Now it really is what I thought it would be. This is no bueno for the b12

    I don't mind streaming services; however it IS easier to just turn on the TV and find the game. With Netflix, there is an app on a smart TV to stream, so you don't have to cast from another device. Will ESPN+ work this way, or will people have to cast to their TV if they want a more enjoyable viewing experience other than staring at a smaller screen??

    What is a major pain (in my opinion) is having three different sources for games this season:

    1) Non-conference games on Cyclones.TV
    2) Non-con and conference games on TV contract partners.
    3) Conference games on ESPN+

    Why can't everything just be in one place???

    They completely sold out on previous goals and ended up with less money selling out. Nice job.

    This feels like it is something else outside of the third tier agreement though. Go back and read the press release...

    "The ESPN+ agreement will start for Baylor, Kansas, Kansas State and Oklahoma State beginning this year. Iowa State, TCU, Texas Tech and West Virginia will join in 2020."

    Depends on the TV, Samsung most likely yes, LG probably not but I don’t think they let you download apps anyways just what comes on them.

    Problem is with ESPN+ cost $ and most people are not going to want to pay for this for just a few games a year

    Because that is what we had and it cost too much for young people. Streaming isn't that much different from flipping channels but requires a couple extra steps opening some new app.

    The reason ESPN has to put this stuff on espnplus is because they gave the UFC millions upon millions of dollars and has to recoup its investment by putting KU ISU basketball on the digital platform and charge extra for it...all it is imho is a big money grab......
