Here’s a quick look at what’s coming up for volleyball in the next week on our subscription service BTN Plus. BTN Plus programming includes non-televised games and events available on BTN2Go with a purchase of a BTN Plus subscription. BTN Plus content features live games produced by students at Big Ten universities.
BTN2Go launched Field Pass, a live pregame field level video stream before select football games, followed by Court Pass for men’s basketball. Now our free “watch anywhere” app offers NetCam, a live video feed right from a camera right on top of the net that takes you inside every BTN televised volleyball match. And it’s only on BTN2Go.com.
