The Summit and MVC fan board links we have pinned in those forums are handy, so I thought it might be nice to provide something similar to keep track of all the local media sources that cover our Yote teams. I thought that with all the podcasts and twitter accounts having an increasingly prominent role in sports news, we should have a centralized place for those links.
Earlier this year, we dropped cable TV and went with streaming TV. We get the networks and a bunch of other stuff through a Hulu + Live TV subscription. My only heartburn about dropping cable was the loss of Midco SN, which I think does a fantastic job. It has been a significant loss, but as husbands everywhere know, you win some and you lose some. My hope is that Midco will one day stream their programming and it'll be available to me again.
Today I received an email from Hulu announcing the immediate discontinuation of 18 regional sports networks, including FS North, which Twins fans (on Hulu) will be irritated by. None of this will directly impact the availability of Coyote sports, at least as far as I know. I did note that in addition to FS North, Hulu is also dropping FS Kansas City. Now that the Summit has entered the MSP and KC markets, it's not good to see new limitations (instead of expansion) on sports programming. I have no idea if FS KC ever carries Kangaroo athletics, but if they do, Hulu subscribers in that region will not have exposure to the Summit League. Same for FS North viewers, in the event that network decides to carry Tommie games and give folks a taste of Minnesota's "other" D-1 program.
I'd guess that anyone who spends time on this site would generally rather see more sports viewing options, rather than fewer.
I've got HULU+ also. Bummer on them dropping some channels. I mostly use the HULU subscription for access to ESPN+, ESPN3 and BTN. Hopefully that won't change. Will be interesting to see how many Midco games are picked up by ESPN this year, both football and basketball.
On the Tommies, I have to imagine there will be some way for them to broadcast and stream games. MSP is such a huge market.
