The Big Ten Network Wants You To Switch Now

Last week at Big Ten Media Days, Big Ten Network President Mark Silverman once again reiterated the fact that many Penn State alumni are not receiving the Big Ten Network as part of the basic cable package. He also pointed out that with less than a month until the September 4th season-opening football game against Youngstown State (which will be aired on the network), the time is now to switch providers.

We did an expose of sorts a couple months ago explaining the situation between the rogue cable providers and the Big Ten Network. Apparently, negotiations have not thawed at all, leading Silverman to make the comments he did last week.

Onward State contacted both Armstrong Cable and Blue Ridge Cable, but did not receive a response. Silverman points out that DirecTV, Dish Network, Verizon FiOS and AT&T U-Verse are all options for those looking to switch.
