As in years past there are 4 games, that due to overlap, are NOT on live on ESPNU, but are available via local RSN's and other various channels.

I would like to use this thread as a clearinghouse of information so that fans will be able to easily find these games via Directv/Dish or their local cable companies. I will update this first post as information comes in during the week. If you have any information of these games, please post a link below and I will update accordingly

As usual, all 12 games are available via ESPN3, which is not only great for these 4 games, but also potentially for any overruns of games on ESPNU due to overtime or injuries. However, I do acknowledge that not everyone has access to ESPN3. So finding traditional channels/stations can be a big help


The 4 games in question are: (all times ET)

Friday
530 pm Ferris St. /Denver
Altitude Sports (Direct TV 681, Dish 410) Comcast Denver channel 25

Sat
130 pm North Dakota/Western Mich. -Fox college Sports-Pacific
FSNorth (Directv 668, Dish 436) Kalamazoo area: CW7 can be found on Charter Cable's channel 7 and Comcast Cable's channel 17.


500 pm Minnesota/Boston U. Fox college Sports-Pacific
FSNorth+ (Directv 657, Dish 444/9514) NESN (Directv 628, dish 434/5434)

730 pm Minnesota-Duluth/Maine Fox college Sports-Pacific
FSNorth+ (Directv 657, Dish 444/9514) CW5 WABI in Bangor, Maine WPME-TV in Portland Maine

Please feel free to post information as it becomes available on stations carrying the above 4 games

Thanks,

Bill

*** My question: will Fox College Sports broadcast the FSNorth and FSNorth+ games? ***

My question is this: we know where to FIND the channel, but can we get it for ONE GAME if we don't regularly subscribe to it? Since Fox Sports North is out of our "region," it's not included in any of our packages. Great if you are in the Fox Sports North Region, but as of now, there is nowhere in Boston to see the BU/Minn game for us "non-ESPN3 because we have satellite and no cable provider" people...

Subscribe to the sports package for 1-2 days...then cancel, only costs about 10 bucks for a month and they may even pro rate it down

Or watch it via espn3,(obviously not an option for you) unfortunately this is the best we have right now

Online guides usually take 24-48 hours to properly update

We go this every year. Just happy there is quasi-national coverage for each game. Wasn't too long ago some of these games went untelevised or unavailable outside a local footprint

Not complaining...just want to try to make sure I can see the game if it IS on...I'll subscribe and then cancel. Thanks...

Like we told you in the other thread, that won't go up in the program guide until the day before most weeks (sometimes even the day OF the game). 658 is usually the FSN North overflow channel.

As far as getting access to the channel itself, as bill mentioned, you will need to subscribe to the Sports Pack and pay the $10 for the month. You can't just buy the out of market channels for 24 hours.

Beyond that, as I wrote in the other thread, I believe there is a chance NESN will pick up the BU-Minnesota game because they have a window during that time. The Bruins don't start until 9 in L.A. and the only thing they'd have to preempt is ACC baseball.

It will be on. There's no doubt about it.

In other news, NESN has agreed to broadcast BU vs Minnesota in HD live on saturday.

CW7 is picking up ND-WMU in the West Michigan area.

Figured NESN would televise the game. I'm guessing BU might have ponied up the cash (or at least some of it), but that's no surprise. The only hitch will be if it goes multiple OT's with the Bruins coming on at 9...

Maine vs Minnesota-Duluth will be on CW5 WABI in Bangor, Maine...more info here:
