Mediacom cable systems around the state of Iowa will televise the University of Iowa’s men’s basketball game at Illinois on Wednesday evening on a tape-delayed basis.

The telecast will be shown on local Mediacom Connections channels (Channel 74 in Iowa City) at 10 p.m. Wednesday and 10 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 9. The game will also be available for at least one week on Mediacom Video on Demand, beginning at 10 p.m. Wednesday.

Mediacom has made the arrangement for the re-telecast of Iowa’s contest at Illinois while continuing discussions with Sinclair Broadcasting. Mediacom has added CBS affiliate WHBF-TV (Quad Cities) for its eastern Iowa customers, but that affiliate does not televise Iowa basketball games.
