    Did the HT forget to write an article telling me (and everyone else in Bloomington) that I now have the Big Ten Network. It is Channel 64 on Comcast basic.

    Almost every other newspaper in the state wrote about it and IU athletics even had a release on it but the HT just ignored it.

    It would be nice if the HT could get on top their game and like every other paper in the state mention that the Network is now available in Bloomington on basic cable.

    The HT’s lack of coverage of important stories (like the fact that all IU games are available on basic cable again) is atrocious sometimes.

    John,

    We have not ignored this at all. We’ve covered this situation every step of the way in the newspaper and on HoosiersHQ.com. Here, for instance, is a copy of the information that ran in the top right corner on the front page of our sports section on Friday, Aug. 15, the first day that the Big Ten Network was available on Comcast:

    Big Ten Network is on

    What: Comcast cable starts airing BTN
    When: Today
    Where: Channels 64, 552 (digital), 958 (HD) and 692-695 (overflow games)
    First IU football game on BTN: Aug. 30 vs. Western Kentucky, noon

    Here, also, is our story from the day that the Big Ten Network and Comcast first announced their deal:

    Comcast, Big Ten Network officially strike deal
    Cable provider and sports channel end long-running stalemate with agreement
    By Chris Korman 331-4353 | [email protected]
    June 20, 2008

    Tom Izzo’s nightmare has ended.

    Comcast, the largest cable provider in the country, announced on Thursday that it has come to an agreement to carry the Big Ten Network.

    The two sides spent the first year of the network’s existence feuding, sometimes publicly, while fans were left switching to alternate providers or heading to bars to watch games.

    Izzo, the head basketball coach at Michigan State, called the situation “a PR nightmare.”

    “I think it has hurt all of us,” he said.

    When the hurt extended beyond the consumers and to Comcast — in the form of lost subscribers and ill will — and the BTN — in the form of missing revenue and ill will — the opposing factions found the urgency to strike a deal.

    Comcast, which took control of the Bloomington cable system in January, will begin airing the Big Ten Network on Aug. 15. It will make the channel available on its expanded basic package in states where a Big Ten school is located (except for in Philadelphia, as per the contract terms, and Iowa, where Comcast does not operate any systems.)

    Comcast has the option to move the network to a digital package — which costs only a few dollars more — after basketball season, but not to a digital tier. More than half of Comcast’s customers in Indiana already have a digital package.

    “The announcement of an agreement between the Big Ten Network and Comcast represents a major milestone for Indiana fans throughout the state, and across the eight-state footprint of the Big Ten Conference,” IU athletics director Rick Greenspan said in a press release. “Beginning this season, nearly 90 percent of the homes in Indiana will be able to enjoy Big Ten Network programming as an element of their cable television package.”

    Comcast will make many elements of the BTN’s programming available on its on-demand service and through its web portal at Comcast.net.

    Comcast, which serves more than 800,000 subscribers in Indiana, has not said whether it will raise rates as a result of adding the channel.

    What they’re saying about the Comcast/BTN agreement

    “As vice president of the Indiana University Board of Trustees, I have been looking forward to this day for a long time. I am most happy, though, for our many patient fans who are Comcast subscribers and now will have access to exciting Hoosier games and other Big Ten Network programming. These past few months have been difficult for many IU fans, and so I am extremely pleased and relieved that this agreement could be reached.”
    — IU TRUSTEE PAT SHOULDERS

    “I am extremely pleased that this agreement between Comcast and the Big Ten Network has been reached.Our fans expect to be able to watch Indiana University athletics on television and this agreement will provide broad access for IU fans to see more games involving more sports than ever before. This is great news for our fans and for all who enjoy Big Ten sports.”
    — IU PRESIDENT MICHAEL A. MCROBBIE

    Those of you with AT&T U-verse in Indy. I just found out we’re not going to get the BTN overflow channels at all. Other U-verse markets are apparently going to have them but I guess they believe Indy is not worth it. Just the main BTN channel and that’s it. The BTN was the reason I switched to U-Verse.
