Just as BTN & BTN2Go did for football this past fall with BTN Field Pass, we're turning on pregame cameras before selected Big Ten men's basketball games this season to give fans a glimpse of their teams before the TV cameras go live. The experience starts tonight 30 minutes before both BTN games –  Nebraska vs. Ohio State Court pass goes live at 6 p.m. ET and the court pass at Illinois vs. Purdue goes on at 8 p.m.  You can watch these live online feeds via BTN2Go.

What will the cameras show? Anything around the buildup to the games themselves. We expect to see fans getting ready, players and bands warming up, and any other pregame activities that take place on the court. Remember that in addition to the online-only Court Pass feed, you will also be able to watch both BTN basketball games live on BTN2Go as usual, too.

You have to have access to BTN2Go to watch these exclusive feeds. If you don';t know by now, BTN2Go is a live 24/7 multi-platform extension of BTN that lets fans watch the TV network live wherever they are via the internet, mobile phone or tablet. Cable and satellite companies who have agreed to carry BTN2Go will offer it, but you must have BTN as part of your cable or satellite subscription to get it.

We also now offer BTN2Go for iPhone and iPad via the iTunes store as well as for Android phones via the Google store. To learn more and to use BTN2Go, go to
