The No. 19 Huskies (1-0) kick off against Illinois (2-0) at 3 p.m. PT Saturday at Chicago’s Soldier Field.
The game will be broadcast live on — and only on — the Big Ten Network. Most of us out here on the West Coast don’t have the BTN as part of our regular cable packages, so you will likely have to order a special package if you want to watch the game live at home.
For Comcast customers, the upgraded package that includes the BTN is $9.99 per month. There is no obligation to keep the package for an entire month, according to a Comcast customer services representative I talked to this morning.

Here’s where to find the BTN in the Seattle area:
— Comcast: channel 404 or 632HD
— Frontier: 85 or 585HD
— Wave Broadband: Not available
— DirecTV: 610-1 or 610-1HD
— DISH Network: 5440 or 5441HD
You can check specifically with your zip code here.
For BTN subscribers, the game can also been seen online at btn2go.com.
Based on this programming schedule, it does not appear that the Pac-12 Networks will be airing any sort of replay after Saturday.
