    I tried to order the live streaming from Oceanic yesterday...they are restricting it to Road Runner customers only! Hawaiian Telcom did not do this, they let anyone sign up. Oh well Oceanic's package sucked anyway, they didn't even have road games for streaming. Screw Oceanic and their monopoly.

    thanks first anonymous -- maybe they had the wrong error message up? you're not supposed to be able to order until one hour before the start of a game. and they have this on the front page:

    "Road Runner Warrior Online allows you to see many University of Hawaii athletic events live from any computer in the world!"

    well, guess we'll find out soon.

    and thanks second anonymous -- tvfromhawaii does sound like a great service, but i think the UH football games are delayed until the next day -- showing the k5 rerun, right?

    first anonymous, you were right -- oceanic updated their website to say that you gotta be a Road Runner customer to order in hawaii.

    You guys lucky! We live Molokai in the boonies. Oceanic doesn't want to lay cable in our area because its not cost effective. Most homes have dial-up or aircards/wireless cards in their laptops (cell phone internet service) but they are all too slow of a connection to watch streaming video. Which leaves a huge portion of Molokai fans bumming other people who have cable in the "town" area or sitting around the radio like old school style. After doing that pretty much all of last season, we saved up and took our kids (ages 18, 10, 9) to the Sugar Bowl, because we thought, any kids who can sit by a box and listen for 2-3 hours in this day and age deserve such an experience!
    Anyways - point is, why do cable companies make it easier for Oahu subscribers to access the games, when the stadium is right there, and even easy for mainland based UH fans...what about us neighbor island fans?! We have ONE sort of sports bar/restaurant on the whole island!! Our options are limited....*sigh*
    So MAHALO NUI for all your updates, clips, links, that help us feel a little bit more in the game while we listen to Robert Kekaula break it down for us.

    Oceanic Sucks!!!!!
    Who cam up with the idea of only taking steaming order 1 hour before kickoff. Total amateurs. U of H will lose thousands of $$$ due to their incompetence.

    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. So if anyone on the mainland had problems with it accepting you credit card issue make sure you actually read the agreement then click on the agreement box. Then it will process your credit card info and let you watch the game. The quality of the stream (resolution) was actually much better than Hawaii Telcoms stream last year.
