View Full Version : OT - for those who don't get ESPNU

09-04-2007, 10:06 AM

If you enter in your zip code into the "ESPNU on TV" field it will lead you to a form where you can request that your cable provider make ESPNU available. The form will automatically be sent to the provider once you submit it. I realize that you can also call your cable company to make such a request, but this is an easy way of inundating your cable provider with a bunch of emails requesting that this channel be added. It's time for desperate measures :D

It sounds as though ESPNU to is just going to be adding more and more college basketball games. I happen to get the channel through my dish, and I can tell you that it is worth having......they feature a lot of really good non-BCS games from the Missouri Valley and such.

Thanks for the link CDC. When submitting I found out my provider now carries ESPNU. Looks like I can quit complaining and will be able to enjoy more CBB this winter.

Thanks for the link CDC. In the comment section I let them know that its either provide ESPNU and more specifically the GU and WCC games at no more than I am currently paying, or DISH here I come.

...either provide ESPNU and more specifically the GU and WCC games at no more than I am currently paying, or DISH here I come.

I got the pleasure of telling them that the reason I switched to Dish was the absence of ESPNU! Let's hope it makes an impression, but I can't help but feel that we're essentially e-mailing complaints to the Death Star.

I have a dish and watch ESPNU as much or more than the other ESPN channels combined. I'm not a big fan of MLB or NBA so I watch ESPN/ESPN2 for college games only. If I need a NFL fix, I watch NFL Network.

ESPNU covers the college scene in nice detail and is my favorite of the ESPN channels. I watch all kinds of stuff like women's volleyball. In other words, it is worth having beyond just a means to watch Gonzaga basketball.

On another note, If you really are into the college scene then CSTV is a must. It covers every NCAA sanctioned sport you can think of.
