If that's true, we should put a hurting on them.IIRC, Cal Davis is in a conference that will not share the feed, but I may be wrong.....thought that was why SNY could not pick it up.
I'm in the same boat as you, UConn. I just spent a couple of hours trying to get help/info from Frontier Customer Service. Finally got someone who said ESPN3 will be available to former CT Uverse customers "in a few days." Once that is in place we may need to reset our ESPN password/profile/whatever. I'm not positive she knew what she was talking about.Frontier has taken over our AT&T Uverse, and I just found out that ESPN3 is no longer available to us Is there any alternative way to view this game online? Unfortunately, I think I already know the answer...
That is not correct. UC Davis, part of the Big West Conference, only started having a handful games on ESPN3 last season. I believe you might be thinking of the Pac12 network, which wouldnt share its feed in the past.IIRC, Cal Davis is in a conference that will not share the feed, but I may be wrong.....thought that was why SNY could not pick it up.
I, too, had a long time getting through to Frontier's IT support. Was told to go to frontier.com/tveverywhere. Thereupon I found a drop down menu of the 20 or so online streaming TV providers they are in sync with. ESPN is not one of them.Yeah, I got the "we are working on it" from Frontier as well. Given all their issues, I'm not holding my breath. Frontier shows up on the list of affiliated systems, but it is not active, so the "continue" button doesn't work (yet?) Called ESPN too, but they said they couldn't (or wouldn't) do anything from their end.
The Game on Friday will draw around 8,000 and will be a complete sell out. More than will show for Uconn road games in ACCDavis averages 700 or so fans a game. The Big West Conference, about that as well. So, I'm willing to wager that - whatever the issue - it is unlikely to be unwillingness to be seen across the nation or protecting a valuable commodity.
Still no help for people who had ATT Uverse hijacked by Frontier
As a former Uverse and new Frontier customer, I was concerned that I might have lost access to ESPN3. However, it doesn't appear that I have. I think the reason is that I had only Internet and phone service via Uverse, but my TV service was and still is through Comcast. Apparently access to ESPN3 and WatchESPN is controlled by your TV provider, not your Internet provider (or so I'm guessing), so if you are in the same situation as me, you may still be able to access ESPN3.
And Time Warner cable.Eskin pointed out that ESPN3 is available in 92 million homes and Comcast, Cox, Charter, Cablevision and AT&T U-verse are among the providers which carry ESPN3.
I wonder how many UConn homes are NOT getting the game. Imagine if they all emailed UConn AD...
