Saturday afternoon's Iowa-Nebraska game, originally scheduled for Thursday but postponed due to an impending winter storm, will air at 2 p.m. ET on BTN2Go, the Big Ten Conference announced Wednesday.
The game was originally set to be televised by ESPN2, but when the game was rescheduled, ESPN informed the conference office that due to other programming commitments and logistical issues it would not be able to televise the game.
The conference office then asked if BTN could come up with a solution so that fans would be able to see the game. As a service to Iowa and Nebraska fans, and as a result of a significant logistical effort, BTN has made arrangements to be able to show the game on BTN2Go, the 24/7 mobile version of BTN that is widely available.
BTN will stream the feed from the arena video board on BTN2Go. Fans can go to BTN2Go.com to find out if their provider offers BTN2Go. Visit www.btn2go.com to watch on your computer, or search for ?BTN2Go? in the iTunes App Store or on Google Play for Android devices.
Q: Why can?t the game be televised?
A: BTN is unable to televise the game because we have live events scheduled for 1 PM & 3 PM ET on Saturday. In addition, a production truck was unavailable to produce the game from Lincoln on short notice.
Q: Why can?t BTN produce the game as a Student U streamed event?
A: In preparation for the renovation of the Bob Devaney Center, some cabling and equipment has already been removed. This cabling and equipment is necessary in order to produce a Student U event that can air on delay on BTN.
Q: What if my television provider doesn?t offer BTN2Go?
A: BTN2Go is widely available, through providers such as DIRECTV, Dish Network Time Warner Cable, Mediacom, Charter, Cox, Verizon FiOS and others. If your television provider does not offer BTN2Go, contact your provider.
Q: How do I access the game on BTN2Go?
A: Visit www.btn2go.com to watch on your computer, or search for ?BTN2Go? in the iTunes App Store or on Google Play for Android devices.
