This question is for those of you who have access to ESPN360. Are you able to view all of the KU games that are on ESPN, ESPN2, etc.? I no longer have cable and I am thinking of making the switch from TW Cable to AT&T just for the 360 access. Also, will the 3 mb download speed be fast enough to support watching online or should I go with 6mb?

I have espn 360 and I hook it up to my LCD with vga cables and it looks pretty good! Only bad thing is sometimes you get lag and it freezes which blows but it is free and I live in NY so I don't have local access and i used to pay $100 for the package so it saves that money. 3 mb should be ok I don't think that really matters to be honest I have verizon fios which is super fast and I watched the OU fottoball game this weekend and it froze once and the rest was perfect! Good luck!

forthayshawk - Sorry I don't have the answers to your questions but I had a hell of a time trying to watch ESPN360 on Saturday. My internet provider told me I needed to install Move Player in addidtion to Adobe Flash Player. Not a big deal but my point is whatever you do - make sure it's (ESPN360) up and running before you try to watch a game.

I've watched on U-Verse with 3.0 down and it was fine. Not TV quality but watchable.

I used ESPN360 on my laptop last year for basketball. You are correct that any ESPN-affiliated game will be on 360. Watching on a 3-inch screen is desperate, but do-able.

There is a time lag (maybe 30-60 seconds?, I don't recall exactly) which is not really a problem. If I was watching a game on my laptop anyway, I tended to have the game thread from this site open as well. I would read about something before I saw it appear on 360.

www.justin.tv/jayhawktv or other justin.tv sights are another option if you do not go with ATT/verizon/whoever it is that carries ESPN360 in your area.

I can't help you with the download speeds.

Just and FYI - You can expand screen to full screen.

I run it through my TV at home, as well. If I'm on the road, I can get 360 anywhere when signed into my VPN.

You are allowed to stream video over a VPN connection?

Yup. Some things I need remote access to get done by video.

Thanks everyone for your input. I have tried watching some football games on justin.tv as DrP suggested, but video quality is lacking in full screen on my 32" LCD. Hopefully the 360 quality will be better. Just to confirm what t_jay said all espn college game plans are available on 360 for no additional cost per their website.
