spending too much time in the cave lately?
BTN not available on Dish Network
Well I knew they worked out a short term deal for this past week...any updates that I'm probably not aware of?
I have dish and still have BTN. But I have the sports package. I don't know if that makes a difference.
Uverse was similar price (cheaper first year). First AMC then BTN? Bye bye
And BTN is now on so maybe another temp deal?
Big Ten Network and DISH have come together to reach an agreement in principle for DISH to continue carrying BTN. We expect to finalize a long-term agreement soon and we thank fans for their patience.
This might sound asinine but I couldn't get it last year a couple times but it showed up on the BTN "alt" station. Unless your saying the BTN is completely missing from dish
Dude that's so totally asinine.
i have dish network and also lack the channel now. they better hurry up and make a deal
expected to wake up w/it removed from my Dish Network channels.. but it's still here. But I was kinda hoping it was gone so I would have more incentive to switch providers. I was pissed when they took AMC.. this would be the final straw. But it's not over, they could still pull it I believe. Which would be a huge mistake.
Anyways, luckily Michigan is on ABC today in case it does just disappear at some point.
I know when the BTN launched it was in my Dish package at my cottage and they pulled it from my package after ayear of so. I wonder if they just moved it to a different tier or sports only package. If they did you can call, get it added for a day and then cancel. You get hit for some fees ($5?) but don't have to upgrade full time unless you want.
I would gvie them a call and see what is up.
I'll do that, thanks for the advice.
I don't think the issue is the BTN being moved to a higher tier/package... I'm pretty sure it's the entire BTN/Dish not coming to an agreement on anything. It's worth a try tho, by calling. It's still on my Dish, curious what will/has happened.. haven't really searched any e-news about today.
Hours after Pac-12 Network deal, Big Ten Network announces that they've agreed with Dish Network in principle for long-term deal.
Appreciate the re-tweet. Good to hear... but I still may dish the ditch sometime this fall.
newborn kid plus tight budget equals going with the cheapest provider out there, so I'm stuck with Dish Network for the time being but not by choice. Only problem is where I live doesn't have a lot of cable options and the only one that is here, Mediacom, sucks majorly.
Anyone that gets satellite is a sucker. It's inevitable that it's gonna get choppy and have outages.
(Watch now everyone that has satellite is gonna neg me for speaking the truth.)
Not true. Directv here and its always good plus sports package is the best u can possibly get
Satellite screws up every once in a while when there is hail. However, I missed the first quarter of the Cowboys Classic because the crappy cable at my family's cottage. I'm not sure which provider it was so I won't slander the innocent but it was scrambled off and on the entire first quarter.
...I've had only a few brief outages in heavy rain over 10 years as a satellite TV customer. I've been very satisfied, except for inevitable price jumps and a bad DVR episode a few years ago. And you can't beat NFL Sunday Ticket it you're an out-of-town fan that only sees a few games of your favorite team during the year.
I had grown tired of cable TV's horrendous customer service. I also recall a certain UM-MSU game that I was watching on cable in the late 90's that cut off in the 4th quarter during a very tight game...not cool. So I kinda laugh at the notion that cable TV has 100% uptime.
Ocassionaly, but really not too often.. the satellite gets interference. But it never lasts long. Anyways, only reason I switched to dish network is because they gave me a sweet package at a good price.. and it was back when dish was the first to grab BTN. As for the sports package, I have no complaints... I get BTN/NFL Network/MLB Network/FSN/ESPN's/RedZone/etc. There's never a shortage of sports.. and if there is something I somehow miss, I can stream a lot from my ESPN app on Xbox360.. or the internet.
Not saying Dish is the best by any means, but i've really got no complaints and like the price.
There have been a few times with issues, but the equipment is better than cable. I paid for my own hard drive and for a one time fee of $40 I have DVR! Tied to the wonderful guide on the Dish box. Color me happy (Maize and blue!)
Was a Dish guy....and moved on to UVerse. It was a quality decision.
If you have a unique name, you can access the big ten network through the university. Follow the instructions bellow:
1) Download the UMich VPN client: http://www.itcom.itd.
Using a Mc with 10.6's built in Cisco VPN client (as per the umich site's instructions). Connected and tried to open the link from our post but the page failed to load. Could it just be gameday traffic or is there more I can do?
I was able to load it with out a problem so it isn't the game day traffic. This gives access to the big ten network and many other channels. Did you establish a a connection through the built in client? Go to network preferance and double check to see if the Umich connection has the green light.
