All BTN games and shows are on BTN2Go, which delivers live and on-demand programming via the web as well as to iPhone, iPad and Android users. It's also on Roku and Google Chromecast, and it's available to subscribers of participating TV providers.

The ?Extra Football Game Channels? are only available to BTN TV 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.?
