I live in the Detroit area, and last year I was fortunate to be able to switch to WOW instead of Comcast in order to receive the Big Ten Network. Now that BTN has an HD option, I emailed WOW about having it added to their lineup. Here was their response:
"We do not have any plans to add the Big 10 Network HD at this time. The more requests we get, the greater chance of adding it to our line-up but at this time, it is not a channel we are planning to add."
I'm a huge fan of WOW, and I do not want to switch back just for the HD option. I went to the following link to fill out a channel request form for BTN-HD, and if you're a WOW subscriber (or even if you're not), please take a minute to fill out the form.
