Programming

Mark Silverman is the first president of the network. He was formerly a general manager and senior vice president of ABC Cable Networks Group.[3] Leon Schweir is the Big Ten Network's Executive Producer/Vice President of Production. He previously had spent 26 years working at Madison Square Garden Networks in New York City.[4]


The network is planned to broadcast 35+ football games per season (including at least two per conference team), with 41 football games being broadcast on the network in 2007. For men's basketball, there will be at least 105 regular-season games and three Big Ten Tournament games, with 135 games being broadcast on the network in 2007. For women's basketball, there will be at least 55 regular-season games and nine Big Ten Tournament games. Also planned are 170 Olympic sporting events per year as well as 660 hours per year of institutional programming and coverage from the conference's vast library of historic sporting events, including bowl games. The network has a commitment to "event equality", reporting an intention to produce and distribute an equal number of men's and women's events by year three.[5] Substantially all of its live events will be produced in High-Definition television (HDTV). The Big Ten Network claims it will produce more original High-Definition programming than any new network in television history.[6] This article covers college football played in the United States. ...

The Big Ten Network is available nationally for those who have access to satellite television. DirecTV carries the network on its basic Choice package. Dish Network carries the network on its basic America's Top 100 plus package within the eight state Big Ten region. Outside the Big Ten region, Dish offers the network on its Multi-Sport Pack. Despite the network's success with satellite and most smaller cable providers, several major cable companies such as Charter, Comcast and Time Warner Cable have yet to reach an agreement to broadcast the channel. The reported subscriber rates requested by the Big Ten Network is just under $1.00 per subscriber per month within the eight-state Big Ten region and carriage on an expanded basic tier. Outside the eight-state Big Ten region, the network is reportedly asking for $0.10 per subscriber per month and carriage on a digital basic tier. Currently, several major cable companies have declined to carry the network on their basic tier as the Big Ten requests, which has led to a situation akin to those of the NFL Network and broadband network ESPN360 where fans will miss many live games because their cable provider does not carry the Big Ten Network.

Controversy over carriage rights

Similar to many newly launched cable sports networks, there has been debate over carriage between the Big Ten Network and cable providers. Both sides have tended to argue that the other side is being unreasonable in its demands -- cable companies complaining about the high cost per subscriber for the network and the Big Ten Network complaining about the tier upon which it will be carried. Essentially, in the eight-state Big Ten region, the Big Ten Network wants to appear on expanded basic cable packages at a reported cost of $1.10 per subscriber per month. Comcast, Time Warner Cable and other large cable companies have indicated they want to place the Big Ten Network on digital sports tier, along with other networks such as NFL Network, Fox College Sports and NBA TV. Outside the eight-state Big Ten region, the Big Ten Network is reportedly asking for $0.10 per subscriber and has stated it could be placed on a digital tier, but given the multi-state coverage of many of the larger cable companies, this has not aided the negotiations. Comcast Corporation (NASDAQ: CMCSA) is the largest cable television company and the second largest Internet service provider in the United States. ... Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC) is an American national cable television company that operates in 27 states and has 31 operating divisions. ... NFL Network is an American specialty channel owned and operated by the National Football League (NFL) and is also shown in Canada and Mexico. ... Fox College Sports is a United States digital cable network, owned by News Corporation, that specializes primarily in College sports. ... NBA TV is a television network that is dedicated to showcasing the sport of basketball in the United States. ...


In particular, there has been an argument held in the print media between Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany and cable giant Comcast. In responding to comments made in a press release from the cable TV company, Delany railed about perceived slights against, specifically, the Iowa's women's volleyball team and women's sports in general. Some analysts have stated that Comcast intended no such slight, but rather attempted to accurately reflect the notion that consumers outside of Iowa are not likely to want to pay additional money on their cable bill to be able to watch Iowa volleyball games.[9] Comcast has allegedly provided financial and other support to the anti-Big Ten Network website http://www.puttingfansfirst.org [10]. According to its website, Putting Fans First is "a new coalition of sports superfans and concerned consumers uniting to address the soaring cost of TV sports programming." James E. Delany (b. ... Comcast Corporation (NASDAQ: CMCSA) is the largest cable television company and the second largest Internet service provider in the United States. ... The Iowa Hawkeyes is the team name used for all of the intercollegiate athletic teams that play for the University of Iowa. ... For the ball used in this sport, see Volleyball (ball). ...


It is interesting to note that Comcast is the owner or part-owner of many regional or conference affiliated sports networks, including MountainWest Sports Network. Comcast is also reportedly in talks with the Southeastern Conference on creation of a similar network.[11]. Comcast places its regional sports networks on its expanded basic tier and its carriage rates are often significantly higher than what the Big Ten Networks reported asking rate. mtn. ... The Southeastern Conference (SEC) is a college athletic conference headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama, which operates in the southeastern part of the United States. ...


In response, the BTN has published its arguments in support of its stance on this page. Also, all of the conference's head football coaches except Penn State's Joe Paterno have taped messages supporting the network's stance.

Joseph Vincent Paterno (born December 21, 1926, in Brooklyn, New York), nicknamed JoePa, is the head coach of Pennsylvania State Universitys college football team, a position he has held since 1966. ...


In response to BTN's request for $1.10 per subscriber and basic cable coverage, Comcast executive vice president David Cohen said in publish reports in the Detroit Free Press that demand for the new network has been "virtually nothing." He added, “Consumers are tired of getting expensive channels they don’t want to watch. ... We don’t think that the vast majority of our customers who are not interested in it should pay to enrich 11 universities and Fox.” [12], Along with The Detroit News, the Detroit Free Press is one of the two major metro Detroit newspapers. ...


According to a March 10, 2008 Street and Smith's SportsBusiness Journal Article, Comcast and the Big Ten Network are close to a deal. A March 11, 2008 Chicago Tribune Article confirmed this report. According to the SportsBusiness Journal, the agreement would provide that Comcast would put the network on extended basic cable in at least 94% of the eight state Big Ten region rather than a digital sports tier.


As of now, the Big Ten Network is not being carried on the majority of the major cable providers in the Big Ten geographic region, although the network is carried on Wide Open West, and some Insight Cable systems in the region. Both DirecTV and Dish Network are now carrying the network nationally. The Big Ten Network is currently in over 30 million households, reaching this milestone faster than any new network in history. The network is carried on DirecTV's Choice programming, which does not include its Spanish packages, and Dish Network's America's Top 100 programming. The Big Ten Network's 49% stakeholder, Fox Cable Networks, and DirecTV were previously both owned by News Corporation, although News Corp subsequently sold its interest in DirecTV to Liberty Media.

The Liberty Media Corporation is an American media conglomerate. ...


Published reports in the Sports Business Journal say Fox Cable Networks is tying Big Ten Network carriage to a current carriage contract extension with FSN Ohio and Time Warner Cable.[14]. This type of business bundling arrangement is typical in the industry and is used by other content providers such as ESPN, Comcast and Time Warner.
