Fans Tuning In To Watch Huskies On SNY

There were plenty of fans who were uncertain exactly what the switch to SNY would mean this season. To this point, the switch from CPTV has been met with success.

SNY announced today that television ratings for the UConn women’s basketball team have increased 14% in the Hartford-New Haven DMA. The network is averaging a 5.14 household rating through the first five games of the season as opposed to the first five regional telecasts that aired last season.

SNY’s highest household rating was 5.86 when the Huskies faced Marist at the Paradise Jam in the U.S. Virgin Islands Nov 23.

    My husband and I are looking for a nice sports bar that carries syn and UCONN basketball. Needless to say we are dish connected. So my plan is to go somewhere to have a meal – a cocktail or two and watch the womens and mens games as we have for the last 15years only not in the comfort of our home or the XL center. We are also over 65 and if it goes well we’ll invite other seniors to join us and we’ll party. So who needs syn??

    This is all well and good but Dishnetwork does not carry this channel as part of a regular package. I have the 250 package and it does not include the New York channel. In order to get it I would have to buy a sports package that has other channels that I don’t need and I’m already paying an arm and a leg for what I have. I have all the major sports channels and on my fixed income can’t afford it.

    It seems that this decision was made to switch from CPTV without any regard for the Connecticut fans. Every cable company and dish company carried CPTV and you didn’t have to buy special. The new President of UCONN made this change without any regard for anyone. Maybe it would look good to the ACC to have UCONN on a New York channel but I see that didn’t help much. We’re still in the Big East.

    Being a UCONN women’s basketball fan since Jen Rizzotti started at UCONN doesn’t matter when people make decisions with no regard for anyone. What’s next? Move UCONN to Kentucky or Oklahoma???????

    It’s all about “Look what I did while I was at UCONN”.
