We had a couple of question on our chat earlier today about the Big Ten Network’s plan to stream Indiana’s two preseason exhibitions on its Web site.
Though I may be late, I have some answers.
Q: Why does the BTN stream additional basketball games instead of showing them on the overflow channels as it does with football?
A: Here’s what BTN spokesman Mike Vest had to say.
“Overflow channels aren’t available during basketball season because of the capacity of our facility in Houston. There are a lot of other games that are fed out of Houston during prime time in the season, such as NBA, NFL and other college games, as well as ours.”
Q: Are streamed games archived on the Web site to watch later?
A: Yes, they are.
Q: Will the BTN continue to make use of streaming technology?
A: Yes. According to Vest the network will expand its use of Web-casting to women’s basketball and other sports in coming years. He also said technology advances should improve the quality of the broadcasts.
