    I'm also an Illini fan (and alum) and I'm really looking forward to the BTN on DTV.

    I'm so excited about the possiblity of every game being in HD. Those ESPN+ games that they would sometimes show on Channel 26 just looked terrible on my plasma.

    Anyway, I have a couple of questions and I don't frequent this forum much so I apologize in advance if these have already been asked and answered.

    Does anybody know if they've selected a channel yet?

    What about channels for the overflow games?

    I know the launch date is 08/30, but any idea about when the new channels will start showing up in the guide?

    Thanks in advance......

    I did just get a very nice reply from Tim... and awaiting his permission to post it.

    As for mjsterz's questions.

    The base channel is expected to be 220, we should see it in our guides in a couple weeks.... as for the EXTENDED overlap channels... no information yet, but I wouldn't be shocked if it was not up in the 700's
