The watchESPN app isn't available to DirecTV subscribers yet. Now I'll be able to watch BTN games on the phone while watching other games on the TV.

Apparently Comcast, which seems to be one of the biggest national providers, has neither yet. Not only do they keep me on hold for 3 hrs, but I can't use either of those.  

Screw you, Comcast.

You mean Xfinity????

Apparently Comcast is in the middle of a re-branding effort.  I guess instead of improving their existing shitty brand, they'll just make a new one each time the current one gets to the point that it becomes voted consumers choice worst company in the world.  Which will be every year.

you live in Texas and your primary game (Michigan) is almost always on ESPN/2/U/ABC and lesser games of interest are on BTN. For the game against UConn last year, I even resorted to using ESPN360 online and connecting my laptop to the TV. That was the only way I could watch it at the time since I had just fired Dish for sucking and DirecTV wasn't installed yet.

the BTN has been regularly running promos saying the "Big Ten Legends division coming soon" but they have not ran any regarding the other division.  I haven't read anything into it, but am I correct that the Big Ten Network's affiliation is still with the entire conference as opposed to a specific division?  Just checking.

I would assume you have to pay for the B10 network in order to use the apps? In KC the network isn't a part of my tier of channels for Time Warner. Any idea???

I thought this was some sort of take out ordering system from big ten burrito. It might as well be because damn comcast is going to be slow to get on board with this just like their slow to get on board with watchespn, and have slow/shoddy internet. Ill definitely be downloading it right now tho.

I don't get all the Michigan games where I live, so now I'll finally be able to watch more of their games. And I'm assuming this is free if you have one of the listed service providers?
