The Iowa State University athletics department has agreed to a five-year partnership with Mediacom to distribute programming produced on Iowa State's Cyclones.tv on Mediacom's cable television systems.

The agreement will allow Mediacom to broadcast five to 10 men's basketball games, one football game, and home events in women's basketball, volleyball, wrestling, soccer, gymnastics and softball.

The broadcasts will be produced by the ISU athletics department. Cyclones.tv launched this fall as a digital television network with broadcasts produced by ISU athletics and distributed online for a fee to users.

Mediacom will initially show programming on its MC22 channel, beginning Sunday, and will create a dedicated channel for Cyclone sports programming by early next year. For more information on the agreement, click here.
