The ESPN coverage maps have been released. Here is the link to show them.
So this means in Michigan the game will be on ABC? I like how that third map is structured differently than the first two.
That is how I'm reading the map. The yellow area gets M on ABC. Whether or not the rest of the country gets the M game on WatchESPN, I don't know.
West-coasters can hop a flight to Alaska or Hawaii to catch the game. Nice.
is different because there is no mirror on ESPN2, no game on ESPN2 at all at that time. Which is the problem for anyone roughly West of the Mississippi.
I guess to some degree I can't blame them for not making MICH against UConn, which is a pretty weak game, the national game.
HOWEVA, given how bad both UT and KSU are, Michigan is clearly the most watchable team.
So boo this coverage map...
Suh-Weeeeet. Iowa is a cluster but I'm in the clear.
Anyone know if they're going to have a secondary channel showing the M game or am I going to have to resort to watching it on the web
Living in ann arbor I rarely have to care about this type of tv coverage map stuff, but Ill be in DC for a wedding this weekend. I loaded up watchESPN onto my 3G ipad, but im still not convinced I'll get the game one I arrive in DC. Anyone know ?
I have comcast thru ann arbor and 5 mins ago I rechecked the watchESPN app and at 8pm saturday the michigan game isnt an option(maybe because its on ABC for me??). Will my ipad update once I get to DC ?
This is all super new to me... Any pointers are appreciated. My wife doesnt realize this yet but an ipad is coming to the wedding and I have all intentions of watching the whole game. Hellllp??
I would skip. If they scheduled heir wedding during college football season they have no right to be pissed if you skip.
I'm here in California. I won't be able to see the game. Shit.
I'm out of luck here in Omaha
It doesn't look like it will even be on ESPN 3. Wtf.
Sincerely, The West Coast
Can't watch in TX, either.
For anyone worried about missing the game due to being outside the coverage area, just use http://firstrowus1.eu.
Fuck this shit. What happened to the guaranteed reverse mirror thing? Can't they just put it on BTN?
according to the michigan schedule page on espn, it lists an ESPN3 broadcast:
however, when you go to espn3, it doesn't list the michigan game as "upcoming" unless you go to this direct link - http://espn.go.com/watchespn/index/_/gameId/332640041/league/NCAAF
still not sure if either of these are confirmation for espn webcast.
BiG10 states Nebraska & Iowa get barely half coverage, but for some reason ALL of North Dakota will get the game?
Crap! Can you watch ESPN3 games after the fact, or only live?
I'm going to be in cabin in the middle of nowhere. Psyched about that, but I always counted on getting to put it on my DVR and watch when I got back. I hate UConn and their bullshit.
Pick a city where you can access watchabc.go.com/live and try a proxy (http://www.proxynova.com/proxy-server-list/country-us/).
I would imagine espn will reair it sometime during the week.
Channel 793 on ESPN Gameplan
True. And BTN will probably as well. I figured I could avoid all scores until I got back on Sunday evening and watch it then. Also seems like ESPN3 does do at-will replays.
is getting all the shitty UT games. Well this sucks, I guess I can always tune into ESPNU and watch another Alabama replay.
There's always XBMC and the Live Streams section of the MashUp addon. They have a whole section dedicated to live broadcast television. I'm sure there's a New York ABC affiliate on the list. It's easy to navigate XBMC and the Live Streams section on MashUp keeps getting better and better.
game is at uconn so it does not fall within the big tens contract with espn - the aac contact does not have reverse mirrors
This is very sucky.
My guide shows it on 793. Check again closer to game time
Doesn't dish network usually show the game on an ESPN alternate?
This is all part of our effort to build THE BRAND
Here is ESPN's GamePlan blackout map
If so then I guess it's fine...
I don't know quite how to do it, but I'm guessing that the coverage for Michigan - UConn has 3 - 5 times the population in the rest of the map. Here's a map that shows the population distribution. But it doesn't have the real numbers detailing the distribution, especially overlaid on the Michigan coverage map.
If nothing happening on ESPN 2, then mirror the Michigan game! May be we should wrestle NBC away from ND and make it the Michigan Football Network!
I live in KS, so I am screwed!
Big Ten footprint allows residents in Lincoln, NB and most of Iowa to watch Kansas State/Texas.
If I get the blessing from my GF, I'm thinking about having a viewing party at my house, I get ABC NYC, cause I'm cool like that. I will post a thread on the board tomorrow if she gives me the thumbs up, I live near La Jolla, kitty corner off the 52 freeway.
how Delaney and the AD's feel about that great expansion now?
I know it's usually a crap connection, not HD or anything, but better than missing a game completely. www.feed2all.eu shows pretty much every sporting event. Granted, it's a little ways behind even the TV stream (I'll usually get my Scorecenter push about a second before it happens on the site) but it's something. I'm in Utah, so no UM for me this weekend without some internetting.
That's a good location. I live in PB. I got an Apple TV and it appears the game will be on Watch ESPN so I'll catch it at home, but you're a champ for offering up your house.
I lived in PB for 20 years, fun times,,,I live 5 minutes from PB
Oh well, ABC is stupid, but though the quality won't be as great glad I'll get to watch through WatchESPN. If you have a decent interweb connection the quality isn't bad; not quite as perfect as a cable feed, but way better than anything on firstrow or any of those "unofficial" streams (or for that matter, way better than a non HD signal).
And if your internet/cable provider doesn't offer watchespn, ask a friend or family member to borrow their login info.
Not sure if it is the case all the time, but typically the broadcast of Big Ten games on other networks will be available on BTN2Go as of midnight Sunday. Basically, you'll be able to watch the game likely within an hour of its actual conclusion. Replays on BTN are available for about two weeks.
Here in the Detroit area, the listing is updated - ABC gets the Michigan game, ESPN will have LSU / Auburn and ESPN2 gets Colorado St. vs. Alabama. ESPNU will have Southern Methodist vs. Texas A&M.
If it was a home game I would have more grounds to skip, but who would have thought it'd be a night game!
Thanks for the idea to try watchABC - I downloaded that already, but didnt think of the idea to proxy. It's worth a shot!
Anyway, I'll have my 3G ipad so worst case I'm checking back on mgoblog for streaming sites! Thanks guys.
I'd imagine they put minimal thought into North Dakota's coverage desires. The Iowa situation is odd, but Nebraska is kind of venturing into weird Big Ten/Big Twelve country so it makes some sense.
Will get the game in Orlando. Sorry to all of those who won't be able to get the game.
thanks, I noticed my cable guide went blank and tex Ksu was gone last night.
If we pound the snot out of UConn, the prevailing wisdom will be that "Eh, it's UConn, they suck so this game means nothing." If we play poorly or God forbid, lose, you don't want to watch it anyhow.
Rationalization of somebody in the coverage map/
I live outside the map... Do I get it on ESPN 2?
