Does anyone know if games broadcast on the BTN are available on BTN2go after the game is completed or are they only available online during the live broadcast?
Thanks in advance
IIRC, and I may not be recalling correctly, the games can be played at midnight on BTN2Go.
I just looked into it a few days ago and it says you can watch games live that are airing on the BTN if you have a participating cable/satellite company.
I'm going to my brother's this weekend, and he doesn't have cable. I plan on logging in on my computer with my DirecTV account to stream the msu game live on Friday night.
If you don't have cable it's not going to be an alternative, unless you can borrow a friend's directv or Comcast login. Again I haven't tried it yet, I just researched it last week and that's my understanding of how it should work.
Yeah, the key is that you (or whoever's login you use) has to have BTN in your cable or satellite TV package. If you don't, then it's useless.
Regarding live streaming, as long as you have the channel in your cable/satellite package, you should be able to stream any game airing on BTN:
On football Saturdays when BTN airs more than one game at a time, will I be able to pick which game I want to see on BTN2Go?Yes, every BTN telecast will be available on BTN2Go. If BTN is televising three games simultaneously, but your TV provider is only carrying two, you will be able to find the third game on BTN2Go. Additionally, when the network airs back-to-back games, if the first game runs long and overlaps with the second game, fans will be able to watch the second game on BTN2Go. BTN will continue its television coverage of the first game and join the second game in progress.
Whether they're put together enough to put every game online in a timely fashion is unclear.
As far as I recall, any game which has aired is typically available within minutes after it is finished and I believe BTN stores them for two weeks or so, so even if you couldn't get to a game for a few days, you'll still be able to find it.
One minor thing - if you're like me and have Comcast and downloaded BTN2Go a while ago in anticipation of the day that it would work with Comcast, you'll need to first update the app on your tablet or phone.
I may be shepparding the girlfriend around Harbor Springs during the game so I want to make sure I can catch the game later.
The shopping up there should keep her busy for at least 3 hours. Just give her the credit card and head to the bar at Stafford's Pier and watch the game !
Are there any blackout restrictions on BTN2Go?
Yes, if it is playing on ESPN family of networks it will not be aired until midnight.
How about in Europe? Can one get BTN2Go if they have an App linked to a US Cable provider?
I use it in the uk. I plan on watching the game on it Saturday. Great product.
on the website, it sounds like it works differently from the regular btn2go app. They charge for it, but you don't have to be a btn subscriber.
