What's everyones beef with espn360?

The times I use it to watch my Terps (or my other team) I haven't had any problems. I even hook my laptop up to my big screen tv so I don't have to watch the game on a computer monitor.

It's definitely on a delay it seems like. There isn't much wrong but it's really not a great program to watch the game on. It's sufficient though for the time and allows you to actually watch the game and not have the crappy commentators from Comcast who invite members of the opposing team to assist them with the broadcast which is complete BS! (For those of you who don't know, they did that for Middle Tennessee State last year.) Comcast should not be able to cover another Terps game unless that's in the contract that no opposing teams commentators are allowed. Especially since they are a local/small regional sports channel.

I haven't had any issues with it. I actually run it from my computer onto my big screen TV, and it looks fine. It's certainly not HD, and I'd rather we be on REAL TV, but it's better than nothing...

Is the question regarding having to watch Terps games on ESPN360, or the product of ESPN360 in general?

The Terps being on ESPN360 isn't great but it's watchable - it's a better alternative to not being on at all. I'm sure the Terps record and lack of being in the top 25 influences whether they are on regular tv or not.

ESPN360 itself is a great product - it allows you to watch games not shown in our market that may be entertaining. Plus the availability of replays is great too.

Just wonder how many recruits are logging on to see the Terps play on ESPN360.

As a prior poster said, a winning record and top 25 presence will get them on regular TV.

I can't get it yet, but Cox is supposed to be supporting it soon (before Saturday I'm not sure). The thing I don't like about ESPN360 is the strange gametimes that result from being on there instead of a mainstream network. What kind of kickoff time is 6:30 PM?

ESPN360. The worst. The absolute worst.

I don't think it's so bad. It's easy to use, seems to be fewer commercials, and tech savy people can easily hook up to a TV. Prefer UMD to be on networks but I can live with 360.com until our record gets us back on the big boys.

If Barno says it's the absolute worst, than it must be true.....

Just so everyone knows, I did not write the above comment, Fake Poopy did.

Fake Poopy, I am honored that you thought so highly of me that you took the time to impersonate me. You must have a lot going for you in life to have this much time on your hands pal.

Personally, I think it shows the sad state of affairs of the Maryland program that they won't even show our games on tv. I can't figure out how to get ESPN360 to work when I'm high and have to settle for following the game on this blog, which aint so bad!

Go Duke!!!

Oh my.

Who's the real one....

I wonder who the other posters think the real and fake P McP is.

Kinda like "Where's Waldo?" They may look the same but there is a subtle difference or two that easily seperates them.

Any TV is better than no TV. It is delayed several minutes though. During the MTSU game, I was listening while driving home and we scored. I called a friend who was watching on 360 and he had no idea what I was talking about because 360 was at least 4 plays behind.

I don't like it. I have had many times where I have tried to log in to it and it hasn't gone through and I've had to go through a lot of cache and cookie clearing to try to get it to work. Sometimes I even have to load IE instead of firefox. And sometimes even then it doesn't work.

You can tell the real Poop from the fake Poop by the fake Poop's high top sneakers and incredible foul mouth.

I've never really experienced any problems with ESPN360. So I assume that's the Terps' viewing destination once again?

Posted by: JamWhitt | October 9, 2009 11:23 AM | Report abuse

Works on one computer but not the other, and I can't figure out the problme with #2.

It is terrible compared to TV, but better than nothing.

Does any TV network broadcast the ESPN360 feed?
