The mtn is available on DirecTV, and it's standard on many cable packages in the Intermountain region.
I'm assuming that if Boise accepts an invitation to the MWC, they would provide the mtn on the basic DirecTV package like they do in every other current MWC market.
Also, MWC games are played on Versus and CBS-CS. Versus isn't on the basic package, but it is available on the next-highest package (I don't recall the name off-hand). And I believe CBS-CS is on the same package as ESPNU.
The TV deal was frustrating before they got distribution on DirecTV, yes, and the on-air talent/production is laughable (Todd Christensen; broadcasts that look like vaseline was rubbed on the lens; weak programming), but the games are available, and I'm sure you'll enjoy playing more Saturday games and no Wednesday games. :)
