As of today -- Sunday, Sept 9, 2007 -- the Big Ten Network has worked out deals with Dish Network, DirecTV and some "smaller" cable companies... but has failed to get on major cable systems within the Big Ten "area" such as TimeWarner, Mediacom, and Comcast.
Here in Ohio, the Big Ten Network and TimeWarner have taken to dualing full-page ads in the newspapers. The public may be fed up: Reportedly, when a BTN commercial was shown at the Ohio State game yesterday, the crowd boo'd. (Not sure if it's because the fans are disgusted with the Network, or with the Network-vs- Cable Giants battle.)
Now... do you think the Big Ten Network and the cable providers will come to some kind of deal by the start of wrestling season? Weigh in with this poll.
