Just announced. All home games on Bill's Backyard Streaming Service. Available only with dial-up internet connection.
On a serious note, is NESN or NESN+ no longer in the picture? And what happened to Aunt Flo Sports? Did they go out of business?

Curious if ESPN+ is a possibility.

Looks like 3 games on ESPN+ (first 2 games of the season) and 1 on CBS Sports so far. Gresh and the play by play guy covered the spring practice for FLO Sports on NESN, I bet UMass works something out with them again. It's been nice being able to watch every game on actual TV (mostly NESN) for the most part since they jumped to FBS (even if the games have been overall pretty ugly).

Looks like the 2021 broadcast schedule with FloFootball/ NESN was announced on August 17th last year, so we should know any day now if it happens again:

Bamford said really soon when I tweeted at him the other day. They will announce the start times and broadcast together.

I actually like him doing color for football, especially UMass games, he’s a pretty big cheerleader of the program (URI football alum). He knows the game pretty well and he has some entertaining quips here and there.

He hasn't sugar coated our issues during broadcasts, but deep-down I think he really wouldn't mind seeing UMass turn the corner and start winning some games.

Speaking of broadcasts, does anyone know if football games will be broadcast on any other station than WEEI 105.5 Springfield? I know they used to be on WATD (Marshfield) and WCRN in Worcester, and possibly 1200AM in Boston. I would get 1200AM or WATD where I am.

I think that live audio streaming killed off the radio "network". It wasn't really much of a network to begin with.

No more FloSports. ESPN+/ESPN3 going forward. 1 game on a linear channel in 2023 & 2024.

Absolutely great news! Wonder if this is a reflection of ESPN's anticipation of UMass' future success...

And not to be lost here, the return announcement of UMass Sports Insider making a come back this fall! This is a great way to showcase all of the good work being done by the Athletics department and teams to the general public. Very excited about this!

So does this mean no more NESN? Hoping someone here with streaming experience can summarize the best way for us to stream ESPN+ and ESPN3.
What is required to do this and what streaming services carry these?
