The ESPN app for the xbox is really good.  You can watch truly live ESPN/ESPN2/ESPNU (so like sportscenter and other shows) or select games individually.  Most ESPN apps only let you select the games individually.

It also puts all the college football highlights in one section which is nice.  I could care less about all the other crap that sportscenter gives, but having all the college football highlights in one place is nice.

But - considering how expensive the xbox is, i would recommend Roku over any of the other players.  Roku has BTN2GO app and an ESPN app.  I think chromecast might have BTN too

i just realized the other day that when i try to say something is made up of other things, i would say "compromised of" instead of "comprised of".  My mind was blown that i had been saying that my entire life. cool story bro

i think highlights are free but you need a cable login for the other stuff.. sling tv + antenna + xbox one (because oneguide gives you a tv guide that brings in channels from sling and antenna) is the for cord-cutters and only 20 bucks a month.

slingtv counts as a cable option for the espn app.  once slingtv adds BTN, life will be perfect.  right now they only have SEC Network

I have both and they are about the same price - $25 - $35. I prefer Roku. Both have the ability to screen miror from a tablet or phone. I have only done it a bit and it was kludgy.

Watch ESPN on Roku works great, not sure about B1G.

BTN Plus is a horse shit money grab service brought to us by the Big Ten. I pay to have the BTN on satellite, but I can't watch this game unless I pay more for their online streaming service. If I am already paying for BTN, I should not have to sign up for a monthly subscription to watch us play against Northern Michigan.

I hate ESPN, but at least I don't have to pay extra to use the ESPN3/Watch ESPN.

I didn't try last week since I was at the game, but that does not work for me. When I sign in with my DirecTV credentials I get access to BTN2GO. In the top right corner of that page there is a picture of a padlock that says BTN Plus Content Sign In or Subscribe. 

From the available games schedule page it shows the game tonight is locked without a BTN Plus subscription:

What is true of the BTN is sadly true with a lot of other things when it comes to getting certain content, but I have to agree that it is a load of shit and particularly with BTN Plus, I would assume...well...Jemand in den Kopf geschissen und vergessen umzurühren.

Just another reason the current TV format can't last. My prediction is that TV eventually goes the Google route. You will be able to get everything for free, and the networks will generate revenue through advertising and collecting our personal information.
