Sorry if this has already been asked..
So, the Mediacom channel is 24/7 Cyclones. Will this be live-streamed on Cyclones.tv website? I understand on the Cyclones.TV website, you can watch all of the content on-demand. But if I want to just let it stream for a few hours, can I do that just like the Mediacom channel? Or, do I have to select which items to watch on-demand. Maybe nobody knows yet, but I'm curious if the website will have an option to actually watch the Mediacom channel, all Cyclones, all the time.
This just occured to me regarding increased exposure/keeping the brand in front of people.
I don't think it is unrealistic to expect that in many sports bars (especially larger ones) across the region they'll have at least a TV or two turned to Cyclone.TV programming at all times.
Also, if you renew your Cyclones.tv in the offseason they usually have an "early bird" deal of 64$ for 12 months. That is an outstanding deal. I think it expired last week, but something to think about for the future.
I wonder if Mediacom will ever try to sell this to national providers ala many of the Comcast sports networks like Comcast Chicago for instance. I'm not going to pretend that it would fetch a high price or there would be overwhelming demand for it, but we have a substantial alumni presence in many metro areas and there are enough sports fans nationwide that it could be worth something very small to cable providers (ie. 1/10th of a cent per subscriber per month) to add to a channel line up. PBS for kids, for instance, has a whole sale price of appx 4 cents per subscriber, so it would be a big cut to even those prices charged by relatively unpopular channels with more nationwide appeal. It would also be a huge discount from the 70 cents charged by the BTN and 40 cents sought by the Longhorn Network. However, BYU.tv reaches over 50 million homes by charging a much lower wholesale price. I realize they have the nationwide Mormon following that ISU does not have, but even at ridiculously low wholesale rates, I wonder if Cyclones.tv wouldn't make more money by going nationwide than it does on a per subscriber basis on the internet. Even at 1/10th of a cent per month at 50 million subscribers, that is $600k annually and probably more than Cyclones.tv pulls in revenue wise on the internet would be my guess and it gives us a bigger audience to improve our brand and for recruits and their parents to watch our games (especially Olympic sports).
Pipe dream probably, but I would have never guessed we'd have a 24/7 Cyclones channel either and I would love to be able to watch me some Cyclones.tv out here in Cali. Hopefully, they will have a live stream on the internet feed to get that for me.
The ONLY reason I have kept Mediacom is one word, CYCLONES. That is all.
ANyone know if you have to have a certain channel package to get this channel and will they show a lot of live bball games?
I have to sign up for tv today and Im going either direct or mediacom so thats hwy I ask
free nfl leauge pass or cyclones tv.....hmmmmm
The contract calls for at least 1 football game, 10 men's basketball games and I would guess that it will probably have most women's basketball, volleyball, wrestling, etc. matchups.
