Is the Tourney Package availabe on Cable, or is it a damn Direct TV monopoly like the NFL?
I think Sen. Dole & Sen. Burr should have Congress bust Direct TV’s butt for being an illegal monopoly so that all cable & satellite systems can get the NFL.

that’s great news.

College basketball in high definition is great.

The holes aren’t playing at the same time as us Friday, so WBTV should air our game. I assume that would be the same HD broadcast from CBS.

It's exclusive to DirecTv. Sunday Ticket was my main reason for switching to DirecTv ... having the HD for March Madness now becomes my 2nd reason !!

I miss my Direct TV.

Any word on when regional coverage is announced. I’m thinking that we are playing NC State, an ACC school, along with a 7/10 matchup that it ill be the game shown nationally if there is no regional game. I am just concerned that they will be switching back and forth between that the Florida game and OSU.
