I live in Boise, Idaho and have Dish Network why can’t I get the BigTen out here with my Package without paying extra. You have Blocked this area unless extra is paid. I am from Nebraska and lived there for 48 years, enjoying all the sports the University offered. My package is 200 with Dish and it says this network is included but OOOps it isn’t because you have blocked it. Good grief I don’t want to watch all Pac-12 sports and nothing else. We have a nice Idaho for Huskers following here and we meet at a specific place when games are played but charging extra for the Big Ten is a little much for some. Please can’t you see if a change can be made for us out here in this area. I want to watch the spring game but here we go again NO. Thanks for you consideration in this matter.

Virginia, that’s the way it is pretty much everywhere outside the Big Ten footprint. We’re in Colorado and pay for the upgrade on DirecTV. It’s well worth it during the football season, especially if you want to catch other Big Ten games. And you can always downgrade during the off-season.

Virginia, I threatened to drop DISH last fall (I was on the America’s
Top 120 Plus channel package) if I couldn’t see BTN in Oklahoma. They added it for the duration of the season. I don’t think it’s fair that us Husker fans outside the B1G footprint should have to buy a bunch of worthless Fox Sports channels to get BTN, when we have the necessary programming package if we lived in the B1G footprint. Good Luck.

Will the BTN2Go ever be available on Comcast? It stinks I can’t get it. staff on 4/12/2012 @ 1:03pm EDT Said:

    You’ll need to ask your TV provider that question. It’s up to the providers to offer it.

Brad on 4/12/2012 @ 12:07pm EDT Said:

I’m in Austin, tx and get the BTN but will I get the stream 2pm version and the 9:30 TV version one or both? I was able to watch the NU games last fall but i’m not sure what i’m going to get Sat. staff on 4/12/2012 @ 1:02pm EDT Said:

    Brad, if you get BTN on TV you can watch the game at 10:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, April 15. If your TV provider offers BTN2Go, you may watch the game live on Please see for more info on who provides it and where to see if you do, in fact, get BTN2Go. BTN2Go is free so long as you get BTN on TV and your TV provider offers it. A third possible option independent of the ones above here: You may subscribe to the Big Ten Digital Network and watch it live as well. More info here. That’s mainly for folks who don’t get BTN on their TVs. I’d consider the first two options before you subscribe, but that’s just a suggestion.

Will BT Digital Network broadcast be in HD? Will you be able to watch replay (as opposed to live stream) on BT Digital Network? Thanks! staff on 4/12/2012 @ 2:38pm EDT Said:

    Yes and yes. Feel free to send any further questions about the Big Ten Digital Network to this help site.

“The Nebraska game will air on BTN at 10:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, April 15.” …. Do you mean Saturday, April 14th or Sunday, April 15th ??? And will this be a full replay of the spring game then?

Thanks staff on 4/12/2012 @ 5:32pm EDT Said:

    April 14. Full replay. Our mistake. TV schedule here:

I get the Big Ten Network in Las Vegas but the Nebraska Spring game isn’t on out here as posted on the BTN website and channel guides. Any idea why?

    Brent Yarina, on 4/14/2012 @ 2:30pm EDT Said:

    Sherry – It has been canceled due to weather.
