Ways to Follow the Hawaii vs San Jose St. Game

UPDATE: Bumped, with some changes.

Being There:

Buy tickets through HawaiiAthletics.com, or at Aloha Stadium.

HawaiiAthletics.com has info on fan promotions and ticket discounts.

The Aloha Stadium website has parking and shuttle bus info.

The Honolulu Advertiser has alternate parking info. Note: Ford Island will not be available for parking.

The Advertiser has info about free shuttles for UH-Manoa students.


Television:

In Hawaii, via Oceanic pay-per-view, channel 255. The KKEA audio broadcast can be heard on channel 884.

Oceanic has a list of some of the bars and restaurants that carry PPV this season.

It'll also be shown at the Ko'olau Stadium 10 Theatre in Kane'ohe.

ESPN GAMEPLAN UPDATE: Even though it's still listed on the ESPN weekly schedule, it looks like the game won't be on Gameplan after all. See related update about ESPN 360...


Streaming Video:

ESPN360.COM UPDATE: Even though it's still listed on ESPN's schedule page, and SJSU had a press release about it earlier this week, the game is not listed on the ESPN360.com player and may not be streamed tonight.

Oceanic Cable will be streaming it live via their new UH sports web video service. The game is priced at $12.56 on their schedule. There are some restrictions:
If you live in the state of Hawaii, you need to be a Road Runner customer to subscribe to the video streaming service. Individuals on the mainland or anywhere else in the world, do not need to be Road Runner customers.
Ordering is only available 1 hour leading up to the scheduled event.
Sorry to hear that a lot of people had problems either ordering or getting the Oceanic video to load during the Weber State broadcast. Let's hope Oceanic has fixed whatever caused these problems. From the Weber State thread, "McLovin" offers some advice, just in case:
I live on the mainland and initially had problems with order processing. I would fill out all my info and credit card info and it did not process. Tried for half an hour and it didn't process. Then what I did was actually click on the agreement button where you could read the agreement policy. Then after checking on the box that you agree to their policy it processed my order.
Hawaii IPTV should also be streaming it live. To use this service, you cannot be a resident of Hawaii. You'll need broadband internet access, and you need to either buy a box to view it on your television, or use their new webplayer to view it on your computer. The box costs $125 with a $25 setup fee. For either option, you need to purchase a subscription of $21.50 a month or $180 a year.


Radio:

On Oahu, KKEA AM 1420. Neighbor islands can listen live on KNUI on Maui, KPUA in Hilo, KMWB in Kona. KKEA can also be heard on Oceanic Digital Cable Channel 884.

In San Jose, KLIV AM 1590.


Streaming Audio:

Via ESPN1420AM.com.

Also available on a subscription basis on www.sjsuspartans.com and Yahoo!


Live Stats:

SideArmStats.com, via HawaiiAthletics.com

ESPN Scoreboard

Yahoo! Sports

Sites like CBS Sportsline, Fox Sports, etc should have stats as well.

    I have a comment, but I'm biting my lip from the real wording.

    Nice way Oceanic serves the outer island folks and if you dont subscribe to their service ( or cannot)

    No other way to view the game other than pay per view.

    I don't see the Hawaii game listed on ESPN360. Does anyone know whether it is going to be shown?

    I noticed that the ESPN schedule has a unique link on the ESPN360 logo next to the Hawaii vs. San Jose listing. I'm hoping it will take you to the broadcast once it starts even though the game isn't listed on the directory.

    I signed up and logged in Oceanic Stream. Seemed to work okay for pre-show but during game experienced problems (excessive buffering). My computer is a mac laptop and what I did was switch browsers. I originally used Safari but then changed to Firefox. There were no buffering problems with Firefox. Initially when using Safari, stream was so bad i had to listen to game on espn1420.

    Note: When I got my stream to finally work on firefox the resolution was great (even when viewing on full screen). Just like watching it on TV.
