All Husker regular season football games will be available on Time Warner Cable
LINCOLN, NEB. and CHICAGO - (July 25, 2011) –Time Warner Cable and BTN announced today that the network will be available on the company’s standard service tier for customers in Nebraska beginning Aug. 23. Every Husker regular season football game will be available live on Time Warner Cable during the team’s inaugural season in the Big Ten Conference.
“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.”
In addition to Husker football games, fans will also be able to watch many other Nebraska sporting events, including men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball, baseball, Olympic sports and more.
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. In addition to the primary network feed, two extra football game channels will also be available. BTN Extra 1 will air on 1334 and BTN Extra 2 will air on 1335. These channels are primarily used during football season when games air simultaneously to ensure all conference games are available to customers in their entirety.
“This is great for Husker fans, now that they’re a part of the Big Ten Conference, to see games on Time Warner Cable’s standard service tier,” BTN President Mark Silverman said. “Time Warner Cable has a huge presence in Nebraska, and we’re excited to be making this move.”
“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.”
