I was thinking about getting the NCAA full court package this year and was wondering if anyone on here has gotten it before. If so, do you think it is worth it? While I do have a couple teams I follow (Iowa and Missouri) I also like watching a lot of the smaller schools play (ones not featured on ESPN such as colonial league, patriot league, Ivy league etc, etc). Do they show a lot of smaller school games? Are the majority of the games in HD? Let me know your experiences with this.

Opinion only - but are you on cable or satellite?

If you're on satellite, you can probably get more of what you want at a lower cost by purchasing the Fox Sports package.

I purchased Full Court one year, didn't feel like it was worth a lot, but I only care about UK games. If I try to watch much more, MRS ensures that my enjoyment diminishes.

Even if you're on cable, some of the cable packages would bring you CSTV, ESPNU and/or the Fox college channel (don't know the actual name). And, those channels do carry the smaller leagues. I agree in that looking at some sort of sports package or other upgrade in your service could be more cost effective, give you more games and give you the leagues you want. The only issue could be if you change your package, that may lock you into keeping the new, higher cost package. And, if you only care about college hoops (and not college football or other sports), then you might be better off with the Full Court package because it becomes a sunk cost immediately.

However, without knowing your provider or if you only want the college hoops, it's tough to say which would be best. And, because I'm lame (and cheap), I don't have HD, so I can't help you there.

Seconded. Even as a total College B-Ball (and UK b-ball) junkie I get more than I can handle with DirecTV/Fox Sports package. Love it!



It is a good rule in life never to apologize. The right sort of people do not want apologies, and the wrong sort take a mean advantage of them.

The ACC has traditionally always been the stronger basketball conference, bar none. We'll see what happens next year with a full 11-on-11 and likely losses from Miami, and Virginia Tech.
