Hey geaux, maybe one of your local affiliates will pick it up. I know in the past when LSU has played at Ole Miss one of the Jackson, MS locals picked up the Cox broadcast here. BTW, good luck to your Tigers.....man, are they playing well now when it counts. I was in Hoover Saturday, and it was not pretty through my red and blue glasses.


Good luck to the Rebels as well. The SEC is the best conference for football and baseball. Now lets go out and show the nation. I should be able to watch the game using a Slingbox that I have access to. However, DirecTv should cut a deal with Cox so I can watch it on my 61 inch HDTV. I wish I could have been in Hoover but I was in Omaha last year.

Watched the Tiger / Anteater game on Cox Sports on my computer using a Slingbox that was hooked up to a Cable Box in Baton Rouge. I had to watch it on a 17 inch computer screen versus my HDTVs 61 inch screen because DirecTv does not offer this channel. Great game as the Anteaters gave LSU everything they could handle.

I found out why this game was carried on Cox Sports rather than ESPN. UCLA / Jackie Robinson Park sucks and ESPN would not broadcast the game because of inadequate lighting at the ball park. UCLA needs to get their act together. You name a park after baseball great Jackie Robinson and its a dump. Additionally, the park only seats 1,200 people. Surely, Los Angeles has a better park than this.

Enough of a rant. DirecTv give us Cox Sports.

Cox Sports may have hope.... last I heard from Cox NOLA, DirecTV had pretty much agreed on terms of carrige last year but was trying to leverage the situation by not adding NOLA unless they could get SD to provide access to the Padres. With this out of the way, hopefully Cox NOLA is soon.

I want Cox Sports in Shreveport over my DirecTv. Bossier has it on Cox Cable so they should hopefully provide it for the Northwest Louisiana and hopefully the entire State.

No. You'll see it on the appropriate thread when there is news.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Being a fan of the SB champ Saints, I wish they would carry it as they carry all their preseason games but I know NFL Network carries all preseason games from all teams whether they are live or delayed.

They carry a lot more than just the Saints. If you like SEC Sports then they offer a lot of that as well.
