ESPN3 is an internet sports channel that carries thousands of live and replay games and events online each year. Many UNI Men’s Basketball games and other Missouri Valley Conference matchups will air on ESPN3 this season.

We continue to receive customer questions about how to watch ESPN3. The best way to watch depends on what CFU services you subscribe to and the equipment you have in your home.
