ESPN College Extra is a new pay-per-view college sports service that replaces the old ESPN GamePlan. ESPN College Extra is available to customers of AT&T U-verse and DIRECTV (Channels 788-799), Bright House Networks, Cox, Time Warner Cable, Verizon FiOS and select NCTC members.
In late August, ESPN exercised its option with the Big South Conference to carry the Montana/Liberty game exclusively on ESPN 3. ESPN rolled out its new College Extra platform on September 5.
Previously, Cowles Montana Media was scheduled to carry the game. With ESPN exercising their option with the Big South Conference, Cowles became unable to show the broadcast.
Griz fans can watch the game on ESPN3 at no additional cost with an affiliated internet or video subscription.
ESPN3 is accessible to more than 99 million households nationwide online at WatchESPN.com, on smartphones and tablets via the WatchESPN app and streamed on televisions through Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, Chromecast, Roku, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
Live stats are also available from Liberty University’s website.
Fans can also follow the action on the official Grizzly Football twitter account: @UMGRIZZLIES_FB.
