Does anybody know if the Livestream feed is still operational this year. Campus Insiders seems to have been swallowed up by something called "Stadium TV." Just wondering if this will change how Livestream works.

I watched portions of a women's soccer game. The feed was very choppy, but I don't know if that was an issue with Bucknell, Stadium, or my lousy internet service.

I can't find the football game on LiveStream.

Thanks, that works on my computer.

If we have lost the ability to watch Patriot League basketball and football on our big screen TVs, I'm going to be positively fuming.

This page says there's a Stadium channel on Roku, but I can't find one.

Responding to the last two posts, that was my fear. It appears that we have lost the ability to watch on roku, despite what the PLN says on their site. That info pertains to the old Campus Insiders setup. I have been looking for the stadium app on Roku for the past month. There is no such thing there.

Hopefully, there's just been a delay in adding Stadium to the Roku channel lineup.

Hopefully it will happen, but i think all these entities ( Learfield, Campus Insiders et al) keep getting gobbled up by bigger entities and the PLN does not carry a lot of swat.

Actually, as concerned as I am about not being able to watch on large screen TV, I am even more concerned by the apparent fact that there does not appear to be any archive.

In the past an archive was available almost immediately after the game ended. So if you missed a game and wanted to watch later, you could. There was an LU/Villanova FB game earlier today on the PLN. Is anybody able to locate a replay of that game, let alone a replay of our game which just ended? If it exists, please let me know.

One more observation, Stadium may be leading us in to a pay tv situation. I have always thought that getting what we used to get for free was too good to last forever, and would be willing to pay a reasonable amount for the privilege of watching the Bison whenever I wanted to.

There is a box on the Stadium page asking you to sign up for emails. When you fill in your email address they say click on the link we sent to your email. Only catch, they do not send an email. Have tried twice. SNAFU

It looks like archives are in the works, as a perk in the $4.99/month paid option:

"Coming Soon: You can watch Stadium Plus programming including hundreds of exclusive games, classic events, and commercial-free Stadium TV re-airs for a monthly fee"

That's under the heading of "WatchStadium.com and Stadium apps."

Yes, I think that is where we are headed. Pay service is coming. I'll go $5/mo, but then I want to watch when I want and where I want, including being able to start watching a game from the beginning, before it has ended. That is I want to be able to start watching a 7pm hoops game at 8pm and see the entire game.

I am concerned that so far Stadium does not seem to do what they claim. First it says there will be an app on Roku by July 31. There was not and still is not. Then on their web page they ask you to signup for email alerts. When you give them your email they say "click the link we emailed you,". Only oops, no email.

I'm communicating with Bucknell on this and will pass on your experience with the email sign-up, bison63.

Here is what I got from a source in the know at BU! They will have a Roku app, but the folks at Stadium do not THINK they have launched it yet. They will check (very comforting, more evidence of how on top of their game Stadium is). Once that is up you will be able to watch on Roku.

Where the archives are concerned, I'm told that they are coming, but that there are some issues. Hopefully they will be up in two to three weeks.

So, optimistically it is all coming. I still think $ will come into the picture somewhere, and I'm ok with a reasonable charge. That is me talking about the $. not my source. Also any sarcasm you may pick up on is also mine.

Finally, if you are wondering WTF I am doing up at 4:15 in the AM posting here it is because they put me on massive doses of prednisone to reduce inflamation caused by shingles, which in turn has (temporarily I hope)caused some loss of the use of my left arm. Damn crap is keeping me awake. Hopefully when you read this, I will be sound asleep. (Now if I can only remember if I took the sleeping pill I got up to take...)

63, my wife had shingles about 5 years ago. She was not happy at all. I wish you a speedy recovery.

Just did some research. It is possible to watch Stadium TV if you have a web browser enabled smart tv. Just go to the browser and search "watchstadium" and it will come up. This has nothing to do with Roku. A little further research reveals that there is a web browser app called "Web Browser X" available on Roku for $4.95/month. I presume this would allow you to access Stadium just as I did on my tv browser. As I said earlier, I am more concerned about the lack of archives than I am the large screen. There is no workaround for that one.

Take it from me, Folks at Stadium--you have not launched it yet.
