it is going to cost $24.95 a week to access what they call the Big Ten Ticket (BTT). Here are the most interesting bits of the BTT:
1. Not all of the football games will be televised; only a selected few from each team. One team's games to be televised can range from 2 - 9 games, depending on the coverage.
2. Post-season games? No.
3. and once again, Cost: $24.95 a week!!!
This sounds ridiculous to me, and I have to look into seeing if I can see more games with ESPN360 than BTT/BTN. Below are the official FAQs from BTN's website.
What are you guys paying locally for access to the BTN and ALL of the games????
What is Big Ten Ticket?
Big Ten Ticket is a web streaming service offered by the Big Ten Network that makes the Big Ten Network's televised football and men's basketball games available to those outside of the United States, Canada and certain Caribbean Islands. The service will offer between 35-40 football games and approximately 110 men's basketball games. Big Ten football and men's basketball games televised by ABC, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, CBS or any other network are not included in Big Ten Ticket on live basis, but these games will be added for on-demand viewing seven days after they are complete.
How many games will be offered for my favorite school?
The actual number will vary by school and by year. The Big Ten Network will televise between two and nine football games per school in the fall for a total of 35-40 football games. Throughout the football season, television assignments are determined on a rolling basis 6-12 days in advance of games, so the schedule you see on this website does not include every football game that will be offered as part of the Big Ten Ticket. The Big Ten Network will also televise between 12-20 men's basketball games per school in the winter. Overall, the Big Ten Network will televise approximately 110 men's basketball games, including three Big Ten Men's Basketball Tournament games.
Does Big Ten Ticket include post season games?
Big Ten Ticket season subscription only includes the Big Ten Network's televised Football and Men's Basketball games, which does include three Big Ten Men's Basketball Tournament games.
