COLUMBIA — Despite the recent removal of KOMU from Mediacom's line-up, Missouri basketball fans are still able to watch Wednesday night’s home game against North Alabama on Fox Sports Midwest.

According to David Reiter, director of media relations for MU athletics department, the cable dispute could really only affect two games — one next week against Nebraska and a Feb. 5 game against Colorado. 

Reiter said all other televised games will appear either on national networks or on the Big 12 Network, of which KMIZ/Channel 17 is the local affiliate.

He said that if the negotiation between Mediacom and KOMU continue, the department would keep the negotiations in mind and attempt to get games switched to Fox Sports Midwest.

“We’ll do what we can to help our fans watch that game locally,” he said.

Reiter said he thinks fans are aware of the how to watch the top-10 ranked Tigers play. Tickets are still available to some home games.

The game starts at 7 p.m.
