BTN Schedule on DirectTV

Submitted by blueak on August 26th, 2013 at 8:13 PM

Just moved to Central Florida and got DirectTV for the first time. I see that there will be the regular BTN channel (610) for the games this Saturday plus 4 alternate channels (610-1 BTNa, 610-2 BTNa, etc). I've searched all over both the BTN and DirecTV sites and cannot find any guide as to which BTN channel will cover the Michigan game. Unfortunately, I am hauling my kid off to college this week so I can't watch the game live, but would sure like to record it for later viewing. Can anyone tell me which BTN channel will carry it?

My directv guide shows the game on 610 at 330pm. I have it scheduled to record as well as I will be at the fire station on Saturday with no direct collecting MDA. Make sure you extend the end time as I have missed the last few minutes many times.

Go to the BTN web page and go to gamefinder (link below).  Enter your zip code and provider and will show which games are on which channel in your particular area.  Unfortunately, it is only showing the games for Thursday right now, but should definitely have Saturday's schedule up by Friday if not sooner.

All games will be on the ABC/ESPN family or BTN.  As long as you have those networks in your package, you won't need anything else to get the Michigan games.  It's possible some of the ESPN games will be on an alternate channel depending on local coverage and blackouts, but it will available somewhere on DTV.

You'll be fine with the regular BTN channel. They almost never use the alternates anyway. Just remember to set the DVR for +30 minutes or +1 hour. I had Bright House, U-Verse and DirecTV at some point while living in Orlando. All carried BTN and I believe all of them have access to BTN2Go.
