I am loving BTN, i love the Friday Nite Tailgate they have. I say if people don't like it, they don't have to watch it.

B10 is in a lull right now for programming, Football is the main sport right now, it will really hit its stride in a couple months when Basketball (Mens and Womens) gets going, along with Hockey, Wrestling and other sports. then there will be new content on a nightly basis, and the alt channels will have some regular action on them.
I just hope they keep it all in HD like they say they are going to.

Of course, I'd be cancelling once basketball is over and back on when football comes back.
Missing the shows isn't a big deal to me, its missing the games that use to be on broadcast tv that REALLY makes me mad. OSU games this season that were on the BTN, were on WBNS (CSB aff) in the past. Now, we have to pay for it? What always made me bad with pay tv is the fact that you still have to suffer with commericals. Broadcast TV I understand, Ads is how they make their money and forcing me to watch them is "my payment" in a sense. But to have to do both is just wrong IMO.
On a side note, I like what ESPN/ABC did last weekend and hope they contiune to do so. PSU/Mich was the scheduled ABC game in our area at 3:30pm est. On ESPN, OSU/NW was on the same time. In the columbus market, ABC switched it so the bucks were on ABC for everyone to watch the local game. PSU/MICH was switched to ESPN.
I almost think that this is ABC/ESPN's way of fighting the BTN. Local markets should not be shut out of their local team! I really hope that ABC?ESPN continue with this pratice in columbus and other markets with the same circumstances.
