BYU football broadcasting mess
The Mountain West Conference has made a mess out of the new CSTV contract and the station called the mtn. that is devoted to Mountain West Conference sports. They can't even get the BYU football games on even the largest satellite provider packages.
BYU Athletic Director finally started to plead that people call their cable and satellite tv providers.
People finally realized that a deal wasn't going to happen so those outside Utah (and many inside Utah) decided that they would wait for the rebroadcast of the BYU and Tulsa game on BYUTV. Turns out that a couple hours before the game BYUTV pulled the rebroadcast of BYU football due to a "change in broadcast rights." Seemed a bit odd that they would lose rights a few hours before broadcasting it.
Even though the Boston College game vs. BYU this weekend will be broadcast on ESPN2, the next week against TCU BYU fans won't be able to watch BYU Football on TV.
It looks like it's going to be a long year for those of us that don't have Comcast (the only large provider with the mtn.) and want to watch BYU football.

It is a mess when your favorite team is not on tv. You should have a channel where you can search for the game that you want to watch! Why not? I can go online and do a music search and get the tunes I want. I skip to the on demand channel and do any movie search I want. I can jump on the internet and do a video search at my local movie store from home. I just beleive that if I can do a model search from home, I beleive I should be able to search for the game I want at home!
