    Dish Network dropped BTN

    Looks like they didn't reach an agreement after all.

    DISH Has Dropped BIG 10 Network

    Iowa is probably happy, they didn't want people to be able to watch them get beat by UNI

    Re: Dish Network dropped BTN

    Good for dish. I don't like how the BTN requires their channel to be on the basic package rather than the sports pack like the NFL network. The sooner we get to ala carte programming the better. Let the customers decide if the channels are worth what is being charged.

    Re: Dish Network dropped BTN

    I wish you could get Dish/cable/someone to offer channels al la carte (pay for only the channels you want). I'm not going to pay the rates they want for TV I don't want (or in the case of the BTN, organizations I don't want to support). Until a time that they do, I'll remain part of the cord cutters. No cable. No satellite.

    Re: Dish Network dropped BTN

    This was my response on that forum:Big Ten is inferior football. They are asking for way too much money for an inferior product. They have an inflated opinion of the quality of their product. I am 100% behind dish network in this.

    Amen. Wish DirecTV would drop it next. I could handle having to go to a Sports Bar to watch one game every other year.

    Re: Dish Network dropped BTN

    Good job Dish. I never touch the channel apart from one game, it shouldn't be a basic network anyways.

    Sadly ala carte would probably end up costing the consumer more.
