Hello Boneyard!
Looking for recommendations for a way to stream Big East games. It doesn’t look like I can get SNY on any reasonably priced service. Is this correct? I don’t use my local cable for anything but UConn games. Thanks in advance!

There are quite a few variables that would affect your decision. However, I believe that you are correct in that SNY is not available for streaming in locations outside of their "viewing area". One exception is DirecTV who now offers a streaming service. No idea how it works or the pricing.
I could be mistaken but I believe that last season, all the games that were broadcasted on SNY were available for streaming via Fox Sports streaming. This is available on the majority of the big time streaming options.

Unfortunately SNY, as part of DirecTV streaming service, is not part of all packages. You can check the regional networks available to you by entering your ZIP code HERE. (Click on the Regional, Sports & Local tab to enter your ZIP.) Regional networks are based on the ZIP code used for billing.

I live in Colorado and Directv offers SNY. In fact, it is the only reason I haven’t switched to another system.

You could be right.
Before I cut the cord a couple of years ago, DirecTV was my tv provider and at that time they didn't offer streaming. But they did offer a Sports Extra package that included SNY (I don't live anywhere near the SNY viewing area). I am not sure if DirecTV still offers this package or not. I was wondering if the Sports Extra satellite package was still offered, if the streaming service also offered those networks.
Caveat: I know nothing about the DirecTV streaming service...

YoutubeTV streaming service carries SNY as well as the BIG, ACC, and SEC networks.

True but you can only get SNY if your zip code is in the SNY viewing area. (They do verify your location when you sign up.)

Perhaps using a VPN will help in that.

We are in MA and I tried to get SNY for a long time. It looked like The NBCSports app would work, but you have to be near NY. We saw all the games on the fox sports app which we had on our Firestick. Anytime the game was running, you could watch it live or restart which was helpful when we were a little late. Once when we were late we were unable to restart the game. Shortly after the game they have a full replay available , so we went back and watched the beginning after we saw the end.
We also have YouTube TV and SNY is not on it in MA.
We also save over 100 dollars a month and buy HBOMAX and AppleTV(You have to see Ted Lasso) and share our daughters Hulu and Prime

I tried that and SNY was still not available on my YouTube TV, even with using NYC as the VPN server location.
As long as the SNY games are streamed on the Fox Sports app, that's good enough for me...even if they don't stream the pre and post game shows.

If they were still in the AAC, the only way I would be able to see UConn games that were not on ESPN or other national channels would be on ESPN+ which is something I won't do. I get ESPN with my DISH subscription but I don't watch it much except for some women's basketball. I'm satisfied with the Big East and Fox Sports app, which is also part of my DISH.

I live in NYC and am looking to dump my Spectrum cable because of the monthly cost. Usually watch UCONN on SNY.
As I recall, BE tournament was on Fox Sports, NCAA tournament was on ESPN. There was a game or two on CBSSports.
I suppose I can get the regular season games on the Fox Sports app and the NCAA on the ESPN app
It just so happens I will be moving down to Texas the first week in April 2022.
So with my NY apartment all packed up, I don't know how I'll be able to watch the NCAA until I get down to Corpus Christi.
Once I get settled I'll have cable,WiFi and a Smart TV.
Then I can watch them AFTERWARDS on YouTube. How can I keep from finding out the results beforehand?
How can I NOT WANT to know?
Actually I'll be flying down on 4/6/29022 so I may be able to watch on my tablet or phone if the plane has WiFi.
Maybe I can take a cab to the local sports bar here in Queens to watch the Semi and Final(April 3,4,5?). If they will switch one of the 14 TV's to the NCAA Women's game. At this point I refuse to contemplate there not being another NC game without the Huskies.

Moving in April, might as well stay with Spectrum and eliminate all this @%&# you are stressing about. This way you can sit in your lounge chair and watch the Huskies at your leisure.

I realize that it is waaaaay too early (we don't even know the starting 5 or who will get the most minutes) but has it been announced by SNY that again this season the streaming of their televised games will be available on the Fox Sports app? Was last season a 1 year deal or what?

I believe that it is an agreement between Fox Sports and SNY to carry all of SNY's televised games to non SNY coverage area's. ESPN had a similar agreement to have all of SNY's WBB games on ESPN3 while they were in the AAC.

If you're dumping Spectrum. (you are in NYC currently)..I would suggest switch to YouTube TV. With YouTube TV you will get SNY and all the sports channels and you will be able to record all games to unlimited DVR. Once you move to Texas and setup, activate YouTube TV again with your account, all games played while you moved should be on DVR for you to watch.

Thank you, very much.
Nice thing about YouTube TV is the fact that I would only need it from November through March

That’s right. I get SNY thru my Fox Sports App.

FWIW, most (all?) of the big games will be on a national channel.
That may very well be true but I guess maybe I am in the minority here, but I want to be able to stream EVERY game LIVE! :rolleyes:
Also, IMHO, every game is a big game.

I am in the SNY streaming area - I have it on my atlice service now just wanted to find something cheaper. We don’t watch much tv but need to be able to see the ladies live.
