Mizzou/FSN Announce Two Pay-Per-View Telecasts


Football Games Versus McNeese State, San Diego State To Be Aired

Columbia, Mo. – The University of Missouri and FOX Sports Net announced today that Mizzou’s home football games against McNeese State (Sept. 11) and San Diego State (Sept. 18) will be televised live via pay-per-view for Tiger fans unable to make the games in person.Game time for both contests has been set for 6 p.m. from Faurot Field/Memorial Stadium.  In addition, kickoff time for the Sept. 25 home game against Miami, Ohio, has been set for 1 p.m., with no television for the contest.The pay-per-view telecasts will be available on participating cable systems in the region and nationwide to satellite and telco customers, giving fans the option to watch a game they otherwise wouldn’t be able to see on television.

Suggested retail price for residential purchase of each game is $39.95.  Additional information about how to purchase the telecasts, including a list of participating providers, will be available in the coming weeks.  Details will be posted on MUTigers.com, and on FOXSportsMidwest.com as they become available.

Participating cable and satellite providers will offer the telecasts to their customers on a specially-designated pay-per-view channel.  It is expected that Charter, Time Warner, Mediacom, Comcast, Suddenlink and many more cable providers, along with DirecTV, Dish Network and AT&T U-Verse, will offer the games.  The telecasts will not pre-empt FOX Sports Midwest or FOX Sports Kansas City’s regularly-scheduled programming.

T
his marks the third straight year that Mizzou and FOX have teamed to bring pay-per-view games to Tiger fans.  In 2008, pay-per-view games included Southeast Missouri State and Nevada (the latter was moved to a FOX Sports Net broadcast after severe weather changed the broadcast schedule elsewhere that weekend).  In 2009, games against Bowling Green and Furman were shown on pay-per-view.

“We have an outstanding partnership with FOX Sports Net, and we’re very pleased to make these games available to Tiger fans,” said Senior Associate Athletics Director Mark Alnutt.  “We feel this is a win-win situation for both organizations, as well as Mizzou Football fans who can’t make it into Columbia for the game – now they have a chance to see the game for a very affordable price,” he said.

Mizzou’s 2010 schedule is below, with all known game times and TV information included.  Other TV selections during the season will be made six to 12 days in advance of kickoff by the Big 12’s network partners.
