Time Warner Cable customers in Nebraska are breathing a little easier today. This after the Big Ten announced the network will be available on the company's standard service tier for customers in Nebraska beginning Aug. 23.
"We know how important Husker football is to our great customers in Lincoln and throughout the state," Scott Miller, Time Warner Cable's area vice president of operations for the Kansas City/Lincoln division, said. "This move will allow us to keep providing our customers with the best Nebraska football content in the area."
Starting Aug. 23, BTN will be available on channel 24. BTN is currently available to digital customers on channel 333 and in HD on channel 1333, and will remain on those channels going forward.
"We're pleased that Time Warner Cable has moved the Big Ten Network to their standard service tier," Nebraska Athletic Director Tom Osborne said. "Our athletic department has had a strong relationship with Time Warner Cable for a long time, and we're pleased that they will continue to carry our athletic events and provide Husker and Big Ten content to our fans throughout Nebraska."
Still no word for Cox Communications and Dish Network of when they start to show the Big Ten network on their standard channel package. Both currently offer it in their sports package for additional cost.
