Watch Your Favorite College Basketball Team

Posted on Wednesday, November 28, 2018

Basketball season is heating up! CFU makes it easy to watch your favorite team.

We update an online schedule with game times, opponents and TV information for UNI, Iowa and Iowa State men’s basketball. Find it online at cfu.net/basketball.

Many UNI Missouri Valley Conference match ups are shown on ESPN3. ESPN3.com is an online channel available for free to high-speed internet customers.

Here’s how to watch:

What is ESPN+?

Some UNI basketball games this winter will be available exclusively on ESPN+. ESPN+ is a direct-to-consumer subscription service available on several devices (including Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Chromecast, Roku, iPhone/iPad and Android devices.)

The cost is $4.99 per month. Subscribed fans will be able to stream content through the latest version of the ESPN app.

UNI games airing on ESPN+ will not be available via ESPN3 or on cable TV.

Although CFU would love to distribute all Panther games to our customers, the decision to partner with ESPN+ was made by the Missouri Valley Conference.
