    I’ve never had any good luck with BTN web only. Guess that’s 3 games I’ll miss. Not going to pay good money for a lousy stream.

    How many seasons will it take them to use timeouts better on their stream?

    lol, I do appreciate your optimism 🙂 .. I tried a 1-month subscription for 2 years in a row to watch those games. No more.

    As long as ESPN doesn’t decide to slide some of the games to ESPN3 online.

    I will take ESPNU over ESPN3 or the Watch ESPN App. I live in an area without high speed internet. I rely on a 4G hotspot. Steaming a game would be ridiculously expensive.

    CF, will you reach out to me at damianus504@yahoo.com? I have something to pass along in private, and since I am no longer a member of the Forum, this is the only way I could think to do it. (And I’ve placed this in an old post in the hopes that you are notified by Disqus without the entire crowd seeing it….)
