Oklahoma State football: Cowboys' bowl game will be televised on ESPNU

Trying to find the Heart of Dallas Bowl on TV won't be a fiasco. But it still might not be as easy as some think.
by Gina Mizell Published: December 21, 2012

On AT&T/U-verse, a relatively new provider in Stillwater and beyond, ESPNU is not included on the U-Family package, but is part of on every other package, starting with the U200 lineup. The difference in price between the U-Family and U200 package is $15 per month.

ESPNU is not available on DirecTV's 140-channel Entertainment package, but is included in on every other package, starting with Choice. The difference in price between the Entertainment package and Choice package is $5 per month.

On DISH Network, ESPNU is not part of the most basic Starter pak, but is available on every other package, starting with America's Best 120. The difference in price between the Starter and America's Best 120 paks is $5/month.

Berkinshaw said Cox hasn't seen a noticeable increase in local customers inquiring about the Heart of Dallas Bowl and if they have ESPNU with their cable package. But he expects more will come as the game gets closer.

The best advice to Cowboy fans? Plan ahead. Check that channel package now.

That way, there won't be any scrambling on the morning of New Year's Day to find ESPNU.
