With the loss of the Mtn. the TV situation for Mountain West schools has been a patchwork of local and regional channels. CSU went with local Denver Station KTVD Channel 20. That station only offers access to Colorado residents, so others out of state can't see the game. Wyoming went with Roots Sports for their games, but only three will be televised.

Looks like CSU was able to work some magic with the TV partners as they are first Mountain West school to offer online video streaming for their home football games. Fans have been begging for some type of streaming for years due to the limited reach of the Mtn. Have to give Colorado State props for finally getting this accomplished.

KTVD is set to broadcast the Border War locally and it will be streamed online through the Rams All-Access service. Prices are $9.95 per month or $59.95 for a yearly pass. They haven't announced single event pricing yet. First off, Wyoming better be able to stream the Border War on their own site. It will kill Cowboys fans if they have to send money to CSU to watch a Wyoming home game.

I assume that CSU is just streaming the KTVD broadcast online. Since the Toledo and Cal Poly game won't be televised, I doubt any streaming option will even be available for Cowboys fans anytime soon. The fact that one Mountain West school was able to get streaming done is a great sign. Hopefully this will help other schools be able to work out a similar arrangement for basketball and football games in the future.

There are some regional blackouts for the streaming. Luckily the Border War will not be effected by any restrictions. Really the best thing you can do as a Poke fan is get your butt to Laramie and help pack War Memorial as Christensen shoots for four straight victories over the sheep. For everyone else that lives outside the Front Range it is nice to know that we'll have a chance to watch the game online.
