Game available nationally on DirecTV, Dish Network
Saturday’s game will be available nationally through Dish Network and DirecTV. It will be the feed provided by Montana’s News Stations out of Montana.
Coverage will begin at noon (MT). The game will appear on alternate sports channels on both DirecTV and Dish Network. Those channels normally don’t have content on them, but beginning at 11 a.m. Saturday (on Dish Network) and 11:45 a.m. (on DirecTV) should have "Stay tuned for college football" listed.
A way to test that an establishment will receive the game is to check to make sure that it currently receives Altitude Sports & Entertainment. Altitude is channel 681 on DirecTV and channel 410 on Dish Network. All those establishments that receive Altitude will get the game. All establishments with Altitude will be granted access to the game.
It is very important to understand that the game is not being shown on Altitude Sports & Entertainment, but folks there are helping with the setup and transmission.
Channel: The game will appear on channel 652 on DirecTV, an alternate sports channel.
Dish Network information
Channel: The game will appear on channel 446 on Dish Network, an alternate sports channel.
