watching online with bigtennetwork.com

Submitted by gpsimms not to… on November 12th, 2010 at 11:39 PM

I am in Santa Fe with inlaws, and this town is ridiculous.  I googled sports bars and there aren't any.  (wha?)

Anyway, I know people watched the hoops scrimmage last weekend on bigtennetwork.com, do they stream the footbal games live?  Or do they only stream the events that are not broadcast normally?

Thanks!

Google harder. If there are two things in every American town it's a sports bar and a lonely person wandering the street wearing flannel pajamas.

Anyway I can score a visual for the game tomorrow online? I don't have the Big Ten Channel either. If not, it is going to be a radio game for me. Thanks for any help!

Only once was I suckered into purchasing a game on bigtennetwork.com. The stream quality was terrible, and I vowed to never again give them my money. If that's your only option, you might as well find an internet radio stream and listen to it.

Couldn't agree more.  I paid for a basketball game once on BTN.com and it was flat-out horrible.  I would get a still image every 4-5 seconds, and then another still image after that.  There was a thread on Mgoboard that had at least a half-dozen other people reporting the same thing. 

I contacted BTN.com about a refund, and was refused.  They insisted that the problem had to be with my computer ( I tried 3 different PC's) and would not refund my money.  That was the last time I will give BTN.com a nickel of my money, and I would not discourage others from making the same decision.

Wow.  I was thinking about using a proxy and doing the BTN stream, because I have no problem shelling out a few bucks for something I really wanna see, but after hearing that, that's terrible, no way I'm giving them money, I'll be going with channelsurfing.net

I live overseas and I've watched numerous games  on the internet via bigtenticket. Last year i had numerous problems and the quality was very poor, but the one game on BTN this year was about a 100 times better in terms of quality than last years and was comparable to espn's feed, although ESPN's seems to less delay. 

It's a small sample size, and as with anything your mileage may vary, but I've found the quality of the BTN feed to be far far better than the free streams. Whether its worth the money is the real question.

I live in England so watching any football is difficcult. I've watched all the Michigan games this season online. Games on the BTN make it a bit more tricky because they get shutdown a lot more than games on ESPN. There should be a stream somewhere and if i find it I will post it up here

Justin.tv has okay quality, but I hate the chat section to the side.  I haven't figured out how to turn it off, and there is always an OT debate going on.  Pretty annoying.
