ESPN Buzzer Beater now on 613/1613

613 SD
1613 HD

I have U-300 and (until Sunday), HD Premium.

Hopefully I'll see it during the action...I now see the "you are not subscribed" screen.

I have Sports Package as well as U-200 and HD Premium, and am able to get both 613 and 1613.  I am not sure what combination of those lets me access the SD version and which lets me get the HD one, although I seem to recall that I needed both Sports and HD Premium to get NFL Red Zone.

 

Both have a static screen (like NFL Red Zone's screen when nothing is on) that say that it "returns" on January 1 starting at noon Eastern.

Red Zone is only on HD Premium, AFAIK.
Based on your post, I would say it's a Sports Package thing. If you turn to 1802 or 1932 and see a blur screen with a white "!" on it, that's what I see on 1613.

I may reset my box later to confirm.

I am happy to see that this has finally been added to the TV lineup.  I thought we were supposed to have Goal Line/Buzzer Beater starting in late August as part of a new contract that included Watch ESPN.  But at least we have it now.  I look forward to checking it out some.  And I also like the addition of ESPN Deportes.  I didn't expect to be able to get this since I do not subscribe to any foreign language programming, but I do get this channel.  They show stuff that no other ESPN channels do and I can always just mute the volume and still enjoy it to some music or something.  And by the way RLTV= Retirement Living TV.  According to Wikipedia, it only broadcasts in SD (no HD feed o it is available).  It doesn't really sound like my cup of tea, but the more channels and more choices the better!

I was able to get Goal Line on my computer and ESPN app. Now that Buzzer Beater is TV, I wonder if I can get it and Goal Line via computer.

I am pretty sure Goal Line and Buzzer Beater will also still be available to us on computers, smartphones, and tablets.

Is there a start date for Buzzer Beater or will it start once Conference play starts in January?  Just wondering.  I know they broadcast on like Tuesday/Wednesday and Saturday during the season.

Are you sure?  The screen on 613 and 1613 says it starts January 1.  (January 8 appears to be the date on which it premiered in 2011.)

Re: ESPN Buzzer Beater now on 613/1613

If I understand correctly, do ESPN Goal Line and ESPN Buzzer Beater share the same channel with Goal Line being on during the college football regular season and Buzzer Beater being on during the college basketball season?

 

Is there any difference in the format between Goal Line for the college football season and NFL Red Zone?

 

My third question is will we also get ESPN Bases Loaded during the college baseball seaon? I assume that will be on 613 and 1613, also.
