Insight offers free preview of men's basketball games in Cancun

| 60 Comments | No TrackBacks

Insight customers in select regions will now be able to watch the Kentucky men's basketball games in the Cancun Challenge for free from the comfort of their couch.

UK's next two men's basketball games - Tuesday vs. Cleveland State and Wednesday vs. either Stanford or Virginia - are being aired on the CBS College Sports channel. CBS College Sports is part of Insight's Digital Choice package, however, for the next two days Insight will be offering a free preview of the channel to all of its digital customers in Louisville, Lexington, Northern Kentucky, Bowling Green and Evansville, according to Jason Keller, director of public affairs at Insight Communications.

All Insight customers in those areas with a digital box will be able to view the games regardless of which programming package they subscribe to, Keller said.

Fans in those areas hoping to watch the Cats in action in Mexico can tune into Insight channel 531.

Well, I guess Western Kentucky is being left out of this broadcast. I live in Paducah and I won't be able to see either of these games? Not fair. I can't believe the University allowed this type of limited coverage.

Ditto the previous comment. Guess I'll have to listen to Cawood call it. Oops. Wrong generation!

Evansville? Isn't that in Indiana, thirty miles south in Morganfield, KY no coverage. Makes sense to me.

You have fans all over the United States. Please get the games on a more widespread broadcast. I agree....not fair.

what about the rest of the state? I am having big blue withdrawal. Not fair.

What about those of us in Kentucky who have Time Warner? Are we going to be able to see the games?

Just to let everyone know. I am stationed in San Diego. I am from Paducah, KY. I can watch both UK games on CBS College Sports here in California.

Direct TV Channel 613 shows the game will be aired. 4:30 PM Eastern

what about DISH satellite customers? What channel can we expect the game to be aired on?

dish network chan. 152

Channel 152 on Dishnetwork, ladies and gents.

Very sad about the limited television coverage!
I live 20 miles from Lexington and can't see the game! OMG!

I HAVE DIRECTV, WITH THE 35 CHANNEL SPORTS PACKAGE. WE GET CBS COLLEGE SPORTS CHANNEL. IT IS CHANNEL #613.

WE HAVE ROOM FOR THE FIRST 12 OF YOU THAT DRIVE OUT FROM KENTUCKY...HA, HA. BETTER CALL FIRST.

If you live in Madisonville, Evansville provides all of the major channels for you! Fox, ABC, CBS and NBC

Will there be any chance for New Wave customers to see today's ballgame? I don't remember a game last year not being televised in some way!

S.O.S. What about Time Warner in G'Town ? Does anyone know if it will be broadcasted ?

We have Direct TV and I just checked Channel 613 and able to view for all you Direct TV BIG BLUE FANS!!!!

thanks for doing what u can for big blue fans

I live in Sarasota Florida and it is on Brighthouse cable on channel 751 through CBS!

Maysville, ky??? Any suggestions

All those WKU fans that complain because Kentucky gets more attention need to get over it!!!! Kentucky basketball has the all time wins for college basketball. WKU can't compare, quit whining... it's getting old!

What channel will the game be on for Comcast?

I live in lexington and don't have cable or satellite but looks it would be shown locally especially when played at rupp arena my friend moved from kentucky to tennessee and don't have cable or satellite and has seen all of kentucky games

Update, if you have Time Warner Cable you can call them and add the Sports Package for $8 a month & get the game. Yahoo! Go Cats!

it looks like it will be on Comcast Channel 735 (CBS C) but I don't get that channel. It was one of those in a special premium package or something that I didn't even know was an option. I live just north of Bowling Green and am hoping it might be on some local channel. maybe?

Is there any online viewing option? I don't have a tv... but I've seen almost all of the games so far over espn360.com. Looks like this one won't be on there; does anyone know of another option online?? Thanks!

I live in Pensacola, Florida and have Cox Cable. Does anyone know if Cox will be televising and on what channel? We have ESPN Full Court and was hoping they would air, but no luck!!! ARGHHHHH!

Does anyone know if West KY TV in western Kentucky will carry the games and if so what channel

theres no way im going to order more channels just to watch 2 games. i'll either listen to it on the radio, or ingore it all together. its not like they-re playing anyone decent anyway

Just checked on Direct TV and didnt list the game on 613? Do other have it on there schedule?

I have sports package on DSS, channel 613, however I agree UK should have made arrangements for it to be on Channel 27. They are a CBS affiliate. For once, we could skip the local news & soaps.

when listing info on the coverage of Kentucky games, in the future, please list all available networks and coverages. That would be most helpful. thanks to all who have responded by blog! at least now i KNOW that i can't watch the UK game.

I am an alumni and live in Ohio now.......I have trouble getting any of the games and wish the University would do something about the coverage!

West Kentucy can see ball game on Direct tv ch 613

Direct Tv has ball gam on ch 613, for West Ky

I move to Ohio 17yrs ago....GET DIRECTV...

I'm at Fort Hood, TX and as far as I can tell nobody out here knows if UK has a team this year or not. They've not been on TV here yet.

If you have a halfway decent imagination, you don't need TV, you just need radio. It's more fun to watch the game in your head, anyway.

CBS College sports is available in the hd sports tier package for Time Warner Cable. It is $2.00 a month here in NC but can be as much as $7.00. It can be ordered instantly from your digital cable remote.

found UK game on dish network on channel 152

Mu daughter is in Tx Mcallen she get Uk On fox sport south cable

Time Warner channel 251

Ray,

I'm in P'cola as well with Cox Cable---no luck on my end, what about you?

Local TV picked up Fox South after numerous complaints,,,, this sucks. My nephew and I have been watchin every game the way me an my dad did,,, needless to say,,, i'm not havin fun.

Yeah i'm in Paducah also and the game is nowhere to be found.

If you want to listen to the game online go to the main page for U.K. Athletics and on the schedule in center of page, click on the speaker icon under the coverage column.

You'll be able to download the app for CBS College Sports and listen to the game wherever you are in the country.

If you have Insight basic cable, turn to channel 77.1 for the UK game!

I live in Tampa and have Brighthouse cable. I'm watching the game on CBS College Sports - FREE. Thought I was going to have to purchse it, but not. Must be a promotion.

I am an avid UK fan, living in St. Louis. I can get Fox Sports South on my AT&T U-Verse, but not CBS College Sports. Please do not televise any more games on CBS College Sports.

Time Warner Cable customers. I just checked, and evidently they are allowing us to watch it free. I didnt get this channel yesterday, but now its coming in. They are also reshowing todays game on there too!

I'm going to by in London, KY tonight for the game...any suggestions on what channel it will be on?? Time Warner I think is that cable co. there

direct tv channel 613 9:30 p.m. uk vs. stanford

Dish Satellite channel 152 (CBS College channel)

I live in Columbus Indiana and get the game on Directv channel 613

What channel would that be for Nashville,TN Comcast Cable?

I see that it's going to be shown on the basic cable channel 77.1? But, what if you don't have a cable box? I didn't need to upgrade to a "box" when the switch was made from analog to digital broadcast. So, what now? I don't have 77.1, or 77.2 ... just 77.

Insight needs to think these things through. Just put it on channel 120 or something. Heck, local Kentucky stations should re-broadcast it at 2:00 a.m. on CBS. That'd probably make most people happy.

Roger,
If you have Directv in the Paducah area you can see it on channel 613

Dave in Ft Hood. I was stationed there 46 years ago and would drive out of Killeen about five miles in the country and pick all Ky games up on radio clear as a bell. Good Luck. Hope you can do better

CBS College Sports is available on Channel 152 DISH Network ... starting with the Classic Silver 200 package!!
