BYUtv to Broadcast WCC Tourney Games

Post by DaTruRochin on Thu Feb 10, 2011 10:20 am

THIS year! (Well according to this thread on one of the BYU boards: http://www.cougarcorner.com/viewtopic.php?t=7387&p=75458 )

If true, it's a pretty savvy move to set this up by the commish, and a nice good faith effort on BYUs behalf to show the conference a little love before they even join the conference. It will give those opening round games national audiences (In HD where available.), and a chance for all the loyal WCC followers stuck at home a chance to watch every game! I'm fairly certain Comcast and DirectTV both get this channel, so the majority of the viewing audience should be reached in the PNW (Unless of course you are me and you don't have either of those cable feeds Hitting my head agai )

This is excellent news... This is exactly the type of benefit that BYU brings to the table. The profile of the WCC will be greatly raised with their support.

Yup, Direct TV has it.

Smart move by BYU, too. Rit now they have a children's choir on. Very nice, but I 'm pretty sure WCC tourney games will draw better.

Yeah, and this is just the beginning too, having access to this channel should get a ton of other regular season games televised as well. And not just in basketball, I'm sure we'll get to see a bunch of other WCC sports televised in the near future. Great news for sports fans, not so great if you are a children's choir aficionado...

Yeah, that BYU team is no joke right now...still #2 in RPI with the 11th toughest schedule in the country. I'll be really curious to see how they do without Jimmer next year. He must have an above average supporting cast for them to be 22-2 with that schedule...

http://www.realtimerpi.com/rpi_305_Men.html

I mean they have 11 quality wins over top 100 RPI teams so far (Utah St, St. Mary's, Vermont, Arizona, UTEP, UNLV-twice, Air Force-twice, San Diego State). Ridiculous.

Him and Emory are gone next year. BYU will be a .500 team, maybe.

It would be great if they were to do it, BUT... this has only appeared on a BYU message board. Until I see confirmation from BYUtv or the WCC, I wouldn't take this as a sure thing by any means.

(That's why I put a parenthesized grain of salt in my opening line)

And yeah I suppose broadcasting WCC games would take away time from the upcoming 12 episode biopic piece "Prison to Provo: The Jimmer Story"...

It probably also depends on how much the BYU AD decides they want to spite the MWC....

I seriously doubt it. This year they are 22-2 with a tougher schedule than anyone in the WCC by far. Playing in the WCC is actually going to lower their strength of schedule. It doesn't usually work that way for independents. Those two players must have a solid surrounding cast for them to be able to beat teams like Arizona and UNLV.

I can't believe BYUtv is not in HD. But College Basketball shows up in the guide on Saturday night. Wonderful, can't wait to watch.

Yeah! I've got it on my DirectTV package. One thing is for sure... I won't be tuning into the LDS programming in the days leading up to the game...

Channel 9397 on dishnetwork. It says I have it, but I'm not even sure the channels even go up that high!

Will wccsports.com be webcasting the games as in past years? I've really enjoyed being able to watch the first rounds for free.

Long time BYU fan here. Just to address a couple of questions/points brought up in this thread:

BYUTV does have an HD feed as of early 2011. It is available OTA (Over the Air) in Utah but whether or not folks get the channel in HD depends upon the satellite and cable carriers picking up the HD feed. As of right now, there isn't widespread traction. Unfortunately, most will be stuck with a SD signal.

I don't know whether or not wccsports.com will pick up the live feed of the game but if it is on BYUTV then I'm 99.99% sure that you can watch the game on byutv.org which is free and is an HD stream.

Thanks NorCalCoug and welcome. Good luck in trying to get a #1 seed come tourney time. With that schedule and your high RPI rating, BYU is pretty deserving... If you don't get a #1, it will likely be a #2...

They have only been HD about 2 months now. The online streaming works very well. Better than ESPN3. It is HD.

ESPN and BYU are very much tied at the hip and that should help get BYUtv on to Directv HD line up soon.

Can not wait to be in the WCC with you all!
