Our commitment to High School sports is unwavering; however Iowa State happens to have a VERY good basketball team this year. The schedule for the Big 12 Conference Tournament above has not given us the Quarterfinal game involving Iowa State, therefore we will air High School Basketball live on THIS/MyNET 44.2 on Thursday March 13th and tape delay the Big 12 games on that same channel.
All High School games will air live on Friday the 14th – the daytime games on KPTH2 THIS/MyNET and the 1A and 2A Championship games on KPTH FOX44. The Big 12 Tournament games scheduled for Friday evening on the 14th will air live on THIS/MyNET 44.2.
This decision was extremely difficult because whichever way we go we disappoint some viewers. While disappointing viewers is the last thing we want to do unfortunately in this case we have no choice. A decision had to be made.
I know some of you will disagree and be disappointed and I will make every effort to ensure we do not run into this problem next year.
To receive KPTH 44.2 THIS/MyNet you can either get it over the air with a digital antenna or on most of your local cable systems. Please check with your cable provider. It is also carried on DirectTV on channel 45; however DISH does not carry the station.
