Iowa State says it is entering into a five-year partnership with Mediacom to distribute programming from Cyclones.tv across Iowa and bordering states.
Cyclone Athletic Director Jamie Pollard says the agreement paves the way for a fully dedicated Iowa State sports channel on Mediacom's cable television network. No date has been set for that channel's launch.
Mediacom says it will televise roughly 75 Iowa State games a year, including a football game and 5-10 men's basketball games. The programming will be produced by Cyclones.tv, Iowa State's in-house broadcaster, and also include coaches' shows and live media conferences.
It's believed that Iowa State would join Texas and BYU as the only schools with a channel dedicated to their athletic teams. Financial terms of the agreement have yet to be disclosed.
