The “Extra Football Game Channels” are only available to BTN during the football Saturdays because of capacity issues with our cable and satellite providers. The non-conference basketball season overlaps with dozens of other sporting events, including NHL, NBA and other regional football and basketball games. Therefore, our cable and satellite partners are unable to offer this space to us, even though our Extra Football Game Channels may still continue to appear on your channel guide. During the conference portion of the basketball season, the Big Ten schedules games in such a way where there is no need for “Extra Football Game Channels.”

You can read answers to all of our frequently asked questions on our FAQ page. Specifically…

Q: I want to know more about these “extra football game channels.” What are they?
A: These “extra” channels are part-time channels that the Big Ten Network provides to cable, satellite and telco systems which allow the network to offer multiple football games simultaneously to viewers. You probably never even notice them except on game days. Get more info on extra football game channels right here.

Q: Do I get these extra channels on my TV?
A: The GameFinder application above should tell you. Enter your zip code. But here’s some more information.
