I am wanting to watch the UT UTM game this weekend as it is only available pay per view. I have charter ISP which gives me ESPN3.com. they have the UT UTM game listed as being broadcast this weekend. On several of the games they have scheduled, they have "subject to blackout" next to it, but not for the UT UTM game.
Does anyone know if that means it wont be blacked out? the auburn game is subject to blackout as is the alabama game, but not the UT game.
Also, if it is blackedout on ESPN3.com, does anyone know anywhere else I can watch it (free) online?
Often the networks will blackout their televised coverage of a game IF IT DOES NOT SELL OUT, in the hopes that locals will instead go to the stadium* instead of watching it indoors in air-conditioned comfort. While it happens more in pro games, it does occur at the college level as well.
Greedy corporate schmucks.
