Headed Into an Extended Weekend

We're off for the weekend after we post this information (see why below)...

FSO Alternate Channels Announced: We missed this one for yesterday's Miami University(Ohio) basketball win over Buffalo, but we're here in time to note this new added information.

FOX Sports Ohio released the following information Thursday about the two major alternate channels we were missing yesterday.

For today's games, this is the schedule in Cincinnati, Dayton and Northern Kentucky:


A-10 Tournament Quarterfinals

Game 1 (12 pm) & Game 2 (2:30pm)

Cincinnati: FOX Sports Ohio; Direct TV: FS Cincinnati; DISH Network: FS Cincinnati.

Game 3 – Xavier v. UD (6:30pm) & Game 4 (9pm)

Cincinnati: FOX Sports Ohio; Direct TV: FS Cincinnati; DISH Network: FS Cincinnati. **The Xavier v. UD game will NOT be televised on FOX Sports Ohio in Dayton, Ohio due to a conflicting syndication agreement with local TV, WHIO-TV.**

MAC Men’s Tournament Semifinals

Game 1 (7pm) & Game 2 (9:30pm)

Cincinnati/Dayton: Time Warner: Channel 99 & 310; Insight: Channel 422; Cincinnati Bell Fioptics: Channel 261; Direct TV: Channel 657; DISH Network: Channel 453.

As Miami(Ohio) advanced yesterday, you Miami fans out there will need to note the above alternate channels. This is due to the A10 tournament going on at the same time as the MAC Men's Semifinals. We bolded the new information that we found out yesterday.

And again, in Dayton, Xavier and University of Dayton fans need to tune their TV to WHIO-TV 7, NOT Fox Sports Ohio. WHIO has the rights to University of Dayton games, as we understand it.

Also one more reminder/note: If you're looking to see the Cavaliers take on the 76ers tonight, you need to go to FSO's HD feed. That's on Time Warner Digital 1309, Cincinnati Bell Fioptics channel 512, and (far as we know) Insight Digital 929.

A Personal Aside: Barring something major, this is the final update for this week due to family obligations as one of yours truly's three brothers' birthday is today. And we may be busy on Monday, as well handling some personal stuff.

Therefore, the next update should be Tuesday morning... barring some unforeseen circumstance.

As you are no doubt aware, we update this when we have something important to share with you. By Tuesday, we should have some idea which NCAA Tournament games will be on locally and when they'll be... so that'll likely be the focus of our next update.

If you have a media tip, you may e-mail us here. We'll get around to it as soon as humanly possible.
