On May 1st, COMCAST is removing the Big Ten Network around the country, except in states where there are Big Ten schools.
Very clever how they waited for football and basketball to end. Some of us have nationally ranked non-revenue sports teams and would really like to see them too. Cost is not the reason, as BTN only charges $1/mo., unlike ESPN’s $8/mo.
BTN gave us this statement:
“We’re encouraging people to reach out to Comcast and let them know they are unhappy with the decision in the hopes that might help rectify the situation.”
“Like legions of Big Ten fans across the country, we were disappointed to learn that Comcast Corporation unilaterally decided to drop the Big Ten Network from Xfinity in many regions outside the home markets of the Big Ten universities. The outpouring of concern and outrage from fans nationwide speaks for itself – BTN is a valuable part of Comcast’s sports lineup, and we share their frustration at Comcast’s decision to deprive them of hundreds of exclusive games and programming featuring some of the most iconic universities in the country.” – Big Ten Network Spokesperson
If you care, please call COMCAST’s corporate headquarters in Philadelphia, at 215-286-1700, ask to speak with “Executive Customer Relations”, and let them know how you feel. Their chairman is Brian Roberts.
Fox, the owner of BTN, is meeting in LA with Comcast soon. Let’s do our part to bring BTN back !
Go Big Ten !
