It looks like UWM has another small amount of TV games on Fox Sports Wisconsin this year, 5 mens games and 2 womens games (though it looks like the games at North Dakota will actually be the Fox Sports North broadcast). I wonder if GB can get in on that action? The channel is available to anyone with a basic cable package statewide and is ingrained into the casual sports fan mind of anyone that clicks through channels looking for a game to watch. It would be good exposure for the program. Plus, the Fox Sports Go app is available to anyone with a cable package unlike ESPN+.
Another interesting twist is that the Spectrum Sports channel is apparently not going to exist anymore once they start up their 24 hour Wisconsin news channel, though it does sound like they may still do live sports on that channel.
TV games (so far):
at Iowa - BTN Plus ($$) at Oregon - Pac 12 Network at Creighton - Fox Sports 1 at Michigan State - Big Ten Network at UIC - ESPNU

The opener vs Wisconsin Lutheran is going to be on ESPN+ (listed in the WatchESPN schedule). Beyond that, the home games and other Horizon League games will probably be a mix or ESPN+ or ESPN3. Bummed to see the Iowa game on BTN Plus. Not forking over $15 for a month of the early season blowouts on that network. Combined with a Packer game on at the same time, I doubt you will find it at any bar in GB.
Edit: Missouri Valley schedule is a mix of ESPN3/+
