Will you be posting your Big Ten Digital Network schedule soon? Also, I’m still holding out hope you’ll be able to show more live tv events staff on 10/8/2011 @ 10:16am EDT Said:

    We have two products: The Digital Network ( airs web-only events that don’t air on TV. Extra games, news conferences, etc. We also offer BTN2GHo, and you can find more about that here: Hope that helps.

Any plans on covering the Midlands Championships? staff on 11/2/2011 @ 5:21pm EDT Said:

Seems like this year’s network coverage lacks the volume compared to years past. Any chance of more coverage? staff on 11/3/2011 @ 1:37pm EDT Said:

    Kiel, possibly. As you may already know we try to carry events live but the winter season is extremely crowded from a programming standpoint with wrestling events often taking place at the same time as men’s and women’s basketball and ice hockey games. We’ve worked closely with the conference office and the athletic departments to identify the best times in order to carry these events live. But conflicts happen. I hope you’ve seen the significant number of wrestling events offered live on That scheduling process is still taking place. Many of those events will also be televised on a delayed basis. Ultimately, the number of wrestling events on BTN and is expected to at least be comparable to last year’s total, if not more.

I just reviewed the schedule. I am very disappointed. I would like to see you double the coverage schedule. You have nothing in December. The semi-finals at the Big Ten Tournament will be great, it would be nice to cover them. If you have to delay the broadcast, I can live with that. Cut down on showing the same event 10 times and show more wrestling.

Buckeyes get 1 match? Dont you have like 4 or 5 channels that make up the B10 network? Looks like stream city. staff on 11/15/2011 @ 2:45pm EDT Said:

    We actually have one cable TV channel (you can find that one TV channel on your TV system using our BTN channel finder) and we are part of a live stream product called the Big Ten Digital Network. The BTDN schedules for any school and/or sport can be found here.

jarrett on 11/15/2011 @ 9:24pm EDT Said:

It would be nice to have more coverage. Even if it’s aired in the middle of the night. Instead of airing the same events over and over thoughout the night. At least then people could Tivo the programs. Just a thought. Thanks. staff on 11/17/2011 @ 2:51pm EDT Said:

Go here:

Click on Sports on the tabs. Click on Wrestling on the left. Scroll through the events in the middle of the page. That’s what BTDN offers right now. Hope that helps.

Bob on 1/18/2012 @ 4:26pm EDT Said:

What can I say, I love the coverage! Not everything evolves areound hoops and football. Only thing I would change? More wrestling coverage!!!! But hey, I will take what we got for now.

Keep up the great work guys!!

Pau on 1/24/2012 @ 5:21pm EDT Said:

Too bad you could not stream PS/Ohio St. A lot of interest…

Tom on 1/29/2012 @ 3:59pm EDT Said:

Please more wrestling coverage on Big Ten cable television!

IRA ROSSMAN on 2/25/2012 @ 3:47pm EDT Said:

more PENN STATE wrestling coverage was not much coverage this year

Ed Langenburg on 11/17/2012 @ 8:21pm EDT Said:

Your schedule has Minnesota at Penn State on Sunday, 11/20, Could you please correct the date. staff on 11/19/2012 @ 10:12am EDT Said:

    Ed, no correction needed. You’re looking at a news story about last year’s wrestling schedule. Here’s the one you want. Thanks.

Rick Lauria on 12/2/2012 @ 9:51am EDT Said:

I am disappointed with the schedule as well, and I agree with one of the other comments that suggested you eliminate some of the programs that are shown 10 times and replace them with more wrestling matches.

Timothy DeRosa on 1/12/2013 @ 12:36am EDT Said:

I enjoy watching Big Ten wrestling. The more programing the better.

Bill Boyer on 2/20/2013 @ 4:06pm EDT Said:

Hope next year’s schedule is improved; there is plenty of room for improvement. I agree with so many others that there is TOO MUCH extraneous garbage and NOT ENOUGH wrestling. Afterall, the BIG10 is the nation’s premiere wrestling conference!
