Anyone know:

Is the NCAA tournament full game package (a la NFL ticket or Extra Innings) going to be DirecTV only or will be it be offering through InDemand on digital cable?

Perhaps those of you that work in the cable industry know that answer...

Call your cable company and ask - I'm not sure on this one.

Looking at my local Cox PPV page, it doesn't show the NCAA Tourney on Digital PPV, so it probably is only on Dish.
However, Extra Innings is listed as part of the Digital Line-up.

It finally occurred to me to go to the DirecTV web page.

It's apparently Dish Exclusive. >:

I guess I'll be sports barring Thursday and Friday.

I think this has something to do with a Viacom/DishNetwork flap. My local Viacom-owned broadcast station was urging DishTV subscribers to call in and urge DishTV not to drop the affiliate, Nickelodeon, or Comedy Central. So it may have something to do with that.


Here is more...

I saw the Dish Network scroll last night on Comedy Central, during an SNL rerun, I think.
