The best way to watch/listen… on your radio: If you’re in WBNT’s coverage area (Scott County), tune your radio to 105.5 FM.

To minimize the amount of data you’re consuming when only listening to the audio of a game, such as when streaming to your car’s stereo, manually select a lower resolution. On YouTube or Facebook, click the settings icon at the bottom of the video, and select the lowest resolution playback possible [usually 144p].)
