No more searching for BYU games ever again. Just check ESPN and/or BYUtv in HD.
I think Harold Camping was right! The end of the world as we knew it HAS passed.
We're now in the new millennium for BYU sports!Hooray for BYUtv and
ESPN and all the technology that's come around at just the right time. WOW!I'm in heaven. Good to be a Cougar!
Atta Boy Dick... Thanks for the follow up.
BYU is clearly on the cutting edge with it's sports broadcasting capabilities.
I still do not understand the full arrangement between BYUtv and ESPN.Last Saturday's rugby game between BYU and Cal was televised on ESPN3 and I
searched all ESPN channels, but never could find ESPN3. How many
other ESPN channels will/could host BYU games? Do we need a special sports
package to be able to watch all ESPN channels or do we have to wait until games
are rebroadcast over BYUtv?At least I know that if ESPN decides not
to carry the BYU activity, BYUtv will.
Old CougarESPN3 isn't on cable, it's streamed online on you
computer.We were at the game, but I think the game was also
televised on ESPNU.
@Old CougarThe rugby match had nothing to do with the BYU/ESPN
contract. That was broadcast by ESPN through some other agreement with the rugby
association the schools are associated with. ESPN3 was an online
broadcast, meaning you needed to connect to it on your computer to watch it
live. It didn't cost anything to watch it that way. It was shown on Sunday
morning on tape delay on ESPNU. BYU's contract calls for all of
their games that ESPN broadcasts to be on one of three stations, ESPN, ESPN2 and
ESPNU. ESPN and ESPN2 are basic cable channels that are standard on just about
every single basic cable or sattelite package. All you have to do is have cable
or a sattelite dish and you will get them both. ESPNU is usually part of an
expanded sports package on those systems. For instance I have Comcast cable and
to get ESPNU I had to buy an expanded sports package that costs me an additional
$7 per month. I actually had it already for the NFL Network but that should be
the only additional purchase you would need to make. BYUtv is already on your
BYUtv is always basic tier. BYUtv HD may be on another tier.ESPN and
ESPN2 are usually on the basic tier.ESPNU is sometimes on a sports
ESPN3 is Internet accessible, if you provider carries it. I have DirectTV and I
could not find the rugby game at all. The system said DirectTV does not carry
@oldcougarYou're guaranteed of being able to see every BYU game
going forward But if you want to watch a Utah football game you'll have to wait
for them to either play BYU on ESPN (thanks to BYU's generosity) or see if they
get a late night game during the week on F/X, Versus, Fox Sports Northwest, the
Travel Channel, Lifetime, The Weather Channel, etc etc through the Pac 10+2 TV
I watch ESPN3 all the time on my computer. You will need a high speed
connection to get decent picture quality.
