Verizon’s FiOS TV Online Launches BTN2Go

Verizon and Big Ten Network (BTN) announced today that Verizon will begin offering BTN2Go, a live 24/7 multi-platform extension of BTN, to its FiOS TV subscribers beginning today.

The announcement was made by Terry Denson, vice president of global content strategy for Verizon, and Mark Silverman, BTN President.

Silverman said, “We’re very pleased to add Verizon FiOS to our growing list of affiliates offering BTN2Go. Verizon FiOS TV subscribers will now have access to the ultimate destination for Big Ten sports, including our extensive schedule of original and studio programming, wherever they go.”

Denson said, “Big Ten Network is incredibly popular with our FiOS TV customers and we’re certain they’ll enjoy the ability to watch this programming online with the launch of BTN2Go.  We’re thrilled to add this to our expanding FiOS TV Online offering, giving our customers the anywhere, anytime access they desire.”

BTN2Go features a live feed of all BTN television programming, including live game telecasts and Extra Football Game Channels, part-time channels available on football Saturdays when BTN airs more than one game simultaneously. BTN2Go viewers also have on-demand access to BTN’s deep video archive, including current season games from the Big Ten Conference’s television partners. In addition, original series such as The Journey, Big Ten Icons, Big Ten’s Best and The Big Ten’s Greatest Games, as well as game highlights and coaches’ shows, will be available.

Very nice and very appreciative as a FiOS subscriber that you two got together to offer this.

Only complaint is that there doesn’t appear to be any of the summer sports (read: baseball/softball) in your BTN2Go app on iPhone. I do hope this is just a temporary oversight or that an update will come down soon (since the season is starting soon…) staff on 2/15/2012 @ 4:35pm EDT Said:

    Not an oversight. Schedules for those sports have yet to be finalized. When they are, we’ll have them posted on Thanks for the note.

I can’t login to the big ten 2go app with my username and password. I confirmed on the verizon website that they were correct.
