    I know CBS Sports has the game. On their website (linky) it says you can watch the channel streamed if you have a participating provider (Optimum for me).

    My question is with Optimum should I be able to watch the game online?

    I'll be at work and I have computer/internet access.

    Take a 2 hour break and go have some pizza and best beer at an establishment near work. Simplify things for yourself Kita!

    Also supposedly if you use the Iphone CBS Sports App, you should be able to watch as well.

    Hmmm the Roku CBS Sports app doesn't have any CBS SN games. You can pay for CBS All Access... but that doesn't have them either. "All" seems like a bit of a misnomer.

    I tried to stream UCF (mostly so I could put the Giants game on the other TV) and was shocked by that crappy lineup of approved providers. No Comcast? No Verizon? What the hell? Way to leave off 3/4 of the country.

    That game was on an ESPN channel I believe, not CBS Sports Network.

    Not on mine, I hate this crap CBS SN situation. Seems like the toughest network to get access to stream games and of course half our games appear to be on there this season

    Despite all the whining below, yes you should be able to and no it's not difficult. The fact that I can do it without issues tells you all you need to know.

    Despite the meaningless post above mine that accomplishes nothing.

    I'll post a link to watch in the game thread later.

    As a fan who is in dire need of a stream, what do you consider to be the game thread? The one with the line as the subject, the one with UUUUUUUUUU as the subject, or a different one?

    I'm guessing CBS. But the logo on the UConn sight is SO f*g small I can't resolve it with a Mag glass. Who the hell is doing web design over there??

    Thanks!! installed and following these links

    There's a lot of similar names, but you're the guy who's close to Mike's in the South End right? If this was at 7pm I'd probably be at Parish Cafe hoping they got CBS SN

    Haha that's correct. Never watched a game at Parish cafe, those sandwiches are too expensive for my blood (but great), but ill have to check it out. Parish doesnt seem like the type of place that would have CBS SN though.

    You are a God. Where were you last game? First row has really been letting me down lately. But no full screen with Hahasports? You'll have to fight the Celtics until 9 or so tonight. I may go to Whiskeys for the second half.

    It definitely has full screen for me, try clicking on the video window first.

    Whiskeys would definitely have the game on.

    As for last game I didn't catch it due to the playoffs but generally if I see people asking about how to watch the game I'll post links. I'll try to do it more often for CBS SN games, remember guys, UConn's exposure is the same if not better than when it was in the Big East according to Boneyard statisticians!

    Was able to get it online at the CBS Sports Network website via Optimum account signon. Thanks though.
