I had ESPN Full Court -- the college basketball package -- at DirectTV.  However, trees in my neighbors yard prevented me from getting to the new HD DTV Satellites, so I switched to FIOS.  The HD quality is great (even if the DVR hard disk is way too small).

 

One question though.  I see the ESPN FULL COURT channels, but I have heard nothing -- zilch -- about ordering the package.  I want to purchase the whole package which was like $99 on DTV if you opted for the "early bird", but I haven't heard anything from FIOS yet.  Does anyone know how they plan to market this product and its availability?  College hoop is my passion, so I'm getting nervous not hearing anything so close to the season tip-off.

 

Thanks.


Dan

Yes we offer it as well I'm actually awaiting the schedule for it so I can purchase it like last year. I'll find out more info and get back to this post.

Anyone know anything more about Full Court for the 2008/09 season, which starts in a week? Last year I had to call some top secret special customer service number to order it, none of the regular CSRs could turn it on for me. Not sure why it's so difficult for college hoops, seems to work fine for NFL and NHL.

I just called Verizon customer service and they did not know anything about ESPN Full Court, the gentleman tried to sell me ESPN Game Plan.  Any idea when this will become available?  The early bird price ends 11/27.  Any information would be great.

Thanks

How can this be so difficult to order?  I mean, here we are people willing to spend money -- how can that be so hard to process.  ESPN has announced the schedule and the Early Bird Package is already being sold to DirectTV and DishNetwork subscribers.  They already have blackout schedules for upcoming games.

 

If Verizon folks are listening, please just let us know that our hoop fix will be sated.  I moved to Fios for the HD, but without the hoops package, I would seriously consider moving back to DirecTV because I hate to miss a single UCONN game.

ESPN360 is only available for those who get their Internet Service from FIOS as I understand it.   I have FIOS for my TV, but not for my Internet.  I suppose it is probably worth the switch.  I will look into it.  Thanks.
