Get a Dish and get the Fox Sports package, ESPNU, and The Big 10 Network for sure.

I agree 100%. I got Dish Network earlier this summer, and while the Fox College Sports channels are great (a decent option if you don't want to switch to Dish or DirecTV - FCS is available from many digital cable providers. Call yours and ask), you can't get the ECAC or Hockey East games (which I'm assuming you'd be more interested, being out in CT) with FCS that you can get with the "Fox Sports" package (which also includes MSN, NESN and Comcast SportsNet New England despite it's nickname - it's actually called the "Regional Sports Package" on Dish, and cost an extra $10 a month or so).

Oh, and in case your wondering, the pro sports will be blacked-out except for those that are deemed to be "in your area." I.E., those you would get on cable or over-the-air anyway, so don't expect to get the regional sports package and watch, say, the Chicago Blackhawks on Comcast SportsNet Chicago, or the Minnesota Wild on Fox Sports Net North with your dish, unless you pay something like $150 a year for the NHL Center Ice package...

I live in China so Dish Network not on the options list..Depends on the school, but many programs videostream a majority of their hockey games on a pay-per-view, monthly or annual subscription basis. If your school doesn't carry the game, usually the opponent will videostream the event.

Check your school's Athletic Department Website under "multimedia."

Games that are on television may also be available on websites that videostream television stations.

I am pretty sure all of the WCHA teams video stream games on a per game, weekend or annual basis.

Does anyone know who ran this site:

http://www.collegehockeylive.com/

the last couple years, and if it will be updates soon for '09-'10? It's been the top resource for TV schedules, IMHO...

As an example, here's what they had for last year:

Thank. I wasn't sure if there was one clearinghouse site that would let me cheat :)
