If you don’t have tickets there are justÂ two options: Order ESPNU now or plan a trip to your local sports bar on Jan. 10.
Indianaâ€™s menâ€™s basketball game against Purdue to be played that night in Assembly Hall will only be televised on the college-centeredÂ incarnation of the ESPN empire.
Insight Cable customers in Bloomington need to order the Digital Choice package â€“ which costs an additional $12 per month and adds 68 channels â€” in order to view ESPNU. DirecTV customers need to subscribe to a special sports package and Dish Network customers can receive it with the Americaâ€™s Top 180 package.
ESPNâ€™s contract with the Big Ten allows it to decide which channel it will broadcast games on, Indiana assistant athletic director Frank Cuervo said.
