BIG 10 is BACK - A Deal Has Been Reached!
I just got an email on this from the BTN:
Attention DISH Network customers and BTN fans,
DISH Network may drop Big Ten Network from its programming line-up. This means starting Saturday, September 1, DISH Network customers could miss over 40 BTN football games this season. DISH customers could miss the first games of the season for 12th-ranked Wisconsin, Indiana, Purdue and Urban Meyer's coaching debut with Ohio State.
DISH customers would also lose access to BTN2Go, a LIVE, 24/7 viewing experience available on computers, tablets and smartphones, with live games, extra football game channels, on-demand programming, and historical events.
DISH customers have already been without AMC and their suite of networks since June. DISH has a long history of network disputes, including FX, MTV, Nickelodeon, National Geographic Channel, Weather Channel, multiple FOX Sports regional sports networks, MSG, SportsNet NY, ESPNU and many of your local ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX stations. Some of these disputes have resulted in DISH customers losing networks for a significant period of time.

Damn. I guess if you are going to piss off New Yorkers and not serve West Coast PAC-12 fans the next logical step is to give a big chunk of the nations heartland a reason to head for the hills.
