is there any info yet on streaming for the new season ????
I signed up to be notified and have heard nothing yet. The season is getting closer it would seem that now would be a good time to give us some info.
What info are you looking for? They're going to provide a service very similar to HoopStreams but more reliable.
More info here:
There is a question about whether the games broadcast on WTIC will be streamed for free as they have been. This blurb from Rich Elliott's blog about the recently announced deal with WTIC suggests not:
A source said that because IMG owns the rights to the broadcasts, WTIC will be unable to stream the games live on its website. Fans can access the games via Huskies All-Access at www.UConnHuskies.com for fees of $14.95 a month or $119.95 a year (about $1 per event).
I'm a regular listener of the post-game show with CD and I hope I don't have to pay for access to it.
As for SNY streaming, I expect the quality to be excellent.
Well, the big thing I'm curious about as a recent graduate is cost.
Jim Fuller confirms that the wtic broadcasts will no longer be streamed for free:
One thing not mentioned in the release is that WTIC no longer controls the live streaming portion of their broadcasts so those people who do not live close enough to get the signals from WTIC or the other stations which carry UConn games will have to pay to hear the games through the all-access program on www.uconnhuskies.com
Wow, I think that was clearly an unknown going into the season. My guess is that had the fanbase known that, there would have been far more support to keep things as they were. But then again, I may be wrong.
From John A yesterday - "What hasn’t been announced yet is how on-line streaming of the games will be handled; whether it will be available on WTIC’s site or UConn’s athletic site or whether there will be a charge."
From Rich - even more details-
"A source said that because IMG owns the rights to the broadcasts, WTIC will be unable to stream the games live on its website. Fans can access the games via Huskies All-Access at www.UConnHuskies.com for fees of $14.95 a month or $119.95 a year (about $1 per event).
The games will also now be available on SiriusXM satellite radio."
LOL, kill the golden goose. The complete NFL package via DirecTV for $199.
It's only $0.77 per game to actually see the coverage in HD!
Unless all you want is the radio for hoops. It is the only UConn athletics I watch. The SNY package on DirecTV for just hoops months is only $72.
We don't have SNY even offered on Bright House - but then again we don't have the NFL network offered either...pricks!
