Which is huge news because everywhere else is scary.
Take it away, Jason Keller.
I wanted to let your readers at Card Chronicle know that Insight has arranged with ESPN to make the UK/UofL game on September 19 available to all of our customers in Louisville and Lexington, regardless of whether or not their current programming package includes ESPNU.
After learning several weeks ago that the game was scheduled to air on ESPNU, we initiated discussions with ESPN and Disney to request an exception for this game and we’re very appreciative that they have provided it. Unlike other communications providers, Insight is the home team here in Kentucky and we understand the importance of the Governor’s Cup rivalry. It’s also part of our commitment to provide the best sports programming around.
In Louisville, analog customers will see the game on channel 11 and digital customers will see the game on channels 514 (standard definition) and 922 (high definition). In Lexington, analog customers will see the game on channel 6 and digital customers will see the game on channels 514 (standard definition) and 922 (high definition).
As we move forward into football and basketball seasons, it is unlikely that we will be able to work out this arrangement for future games. That’s why we would encourage UofL fans to add the 50-channel Digital Standard package for just $10 per month. That will ensure they don’t miss any of the Cards on ESPNU.
More details should be available later this morning at Insight CEO Michael Willner’s blog, www.MichaelsInsight.com.
Well I'm pumped.
We're going to party, karamu, fiesta, forever...or until we're down by 17 at half.
