ESPNU

Post by FANatic on Thu Nov 05, 2009 7:20 pm

Is ESPNU on Comcast Cable?

If it's not, I'll sure be watching those livestats carefully. I can tell when we score a goal at Merlo because I live fairly close to UP. Even with windows closed this time of year, I can hear the crowd, cause it's so darn good/loud!

Don't let the rainstorms keep you away, Pilot fans. This should be a monster game.

(PS: For those of you wondering, I would love to be at the match, storms and all. But I'm kinda shut in these days. Oh well. As long as I can remember the game is on Friday at 8pm, I can at least look at livestats. I know. It's on internet audio, too. Peace, and justice for the Pilots in Monday's seeding extravaganza!!!)

It's on Comcast Digital (channel 411 in N. Portland)
I guess it depends on what package you get whether you will get it.

We'll make sure you get the live audio update through the window. If you hear cowbells, tat will be me and A-Fan.

Miss having you with us, hopefully the chat room will provide some company.

I know you asked about Comcast, but in case anyone has DirecTV then it is on 614. Unfortuantely I do not believe that there is an HD version at all though.

There probably is. Some stations on Dish send out a dual signal, so you might get HD on 614. But that's only if you subscribe to HD service.

You have to have the HD dish. You need to have a dish that can receive from 2 satellites at once (you will see two white plastic receivers on the dish horn - the dish itself will be oval)
When I had mine installed, they installed the wrong one - I had to make them come back and put the right one on. Mine actually can receive from 3 satellites. The futbol feeds from Argentina are on a separate sputnik, too.

Thank you all. It's great to hear from you. We don't get Comcast 411 yet, so I guess I'll punt.

(If you see an American football flying into the stands, that's me punting. Please just throw it back towards Willamette Blvd..)

Welcome letsgopilots11. Great to have a fan in France. Can you get the internet audio of the game? It's the next best thing to TV.

You from France? Or an American living in France?

Geez, thanks for the help...but...for once you are wrong (wow, that feels good to say). DirecTV does not yet carry ESPNU HD, they just moved ESPNU to their Choice Packages, and as part of that deal they will carry ESPNU HD by the end of the first quarter of 2010. Hopefully it is sooner, because if I recall correctly there will be several Pilot basketball games on ESPNU.

When they start programming it I will know immediately, as my receiver is not set up to carry duplicate channels. It hides the SD channel of any station which also send an HD signal.

ESPN Commentary

Post by UPSoccerFanatic on Sat Nov 07, 2009 11:39 am

I came home last night after the game and watched the first half and part of the second on ESPN U. I thought the commentary was excellent. I liked in particular the regular talk about the Pilots style of play, which they called the European style.

What great coverage of the game by ESPNU. They really said very nice things about the program. I think we looked great too!

BTW, I work for Comcast so if you don't want to deal with Dish or waiting for HD call me! 866-727-9840 and ask for opperator ID 994. I will hook you up with our best deals, no BS!

I really liked the graphic that they put up to show the Pilot per game scoring average-

"High Flying Pilots"

We need to bring back the Pilot wheel or something. We are Riverboat Pilots, not airline Pilots.


I've never watched a Pilot game on FSC, so I have nothing to compare with...but I thought the whole production was decent, wouldn't really expect anything more from a women's college soccer game. I know, we all love our Pilot soccer, but I can't see ESPN justifying putting too much money into it. I would be willing to bet SportsCenter shows women's college soccer highlights twice a year. Maybe once if they choose not to show highlights of the championship game. Maybe never if BYU and UNM never match up.

The reason I have dish is because I had Comcast before. I don't get Comcast out here anyway.

I also thought the broadcast was pretty good. Not really in HD, though. Just the bars on the side. Sad

purplerose,

If memory serves me correctly, the last couple years ALL Pilot play-off games, whether home or away, are televised by Comcast's "Comcast Sports Net" on cable channel 37.

If we made it to the finals it would be on ESPN or ESPN2.

Someone should be able to verify that for me.
