Folks: I know there’s been a lot of confusion about how and where to find the TV broadcast of Saturday’s game at Chicago’s Soldier Field. I’m reposting these tips from the other day in hopes of staving off some of the frustration some of you are having. I realize that a lot of the cable operators list the Penn State-Central Florida game (also at 3 PT Saturday) instead of the UW-Illinois game, but according to this Big Ten Network game finder, it will indeed be the Huskies and Illini on locally. Hope that helps.
Also, I’ve been informed a new online radio company that has a new agreement to broadcast Pac-12 Conference games. It’s called TuneIn, and you can find it here. There’s also an app available for mobile devices.
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 (Note: I’m told Wave has reached an agreement to add BTN this week. Should be available on channel 518 or 785 HD.)
– 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.
