    I was looking to see what games are on the Big Ten Network this Saturday and on the Big Ten Network 439, it shows Ohio State at Youngstown State at noon. Does anyone know if the other alternate channels are going to come on because I don't see Penn State listed which also plays at noon.

    Aren't these HD channels? So that means DISH isn't going to bring up the overflow channels for us regular digital viewers?

    No, for some reason these are the sd versions. The HD BTN Alt channels are at 9501-9504.

    Thanks. Didn't realize that. I'll check to see if I have those when I get home this evening.

    Thanks. I found that out by looking on the Big Ten Network's website. I didn't know that they got moved into the 5000's. They were on 440-443 last season and since I don't watch BTN except during college football season, I never noticed they were moved.

    Plus, I see them listed on my guide. I just want to be sure I can see Penn State as well as another game. You never know when you may get the next Appilachin State-Michigan game!!!
