    This is the right thread. BTN is not active yet or if at all on DISH Network. The testing by DISH on channel 439 indicates the possibility they could be testing Big Ten Network, according to previous posts in this thread and the Uplink Activity for the week of 09-04-2007 thread. This is just one of those things that we have to wait and see on.

    more potential good news for us in an updated uplink today.

    440 - TEMP [MPEG2 SD] added to EchoStar8 110W TP 24 ConUS beam (Not Available)
    441 - TEMP [MPEG2 SD] added to EchoStar8 110W TP 24 ConUS beam (Not Available)
    442 - TEMP [MPEG2 SD] added to EchoStar8 110W TP 24 ConUS beam (Not Available)
    443 - TEMP [MPEG2 SD] added to EchoStar8 110W TP 24 ConUS beam (Not Available)

    All right above 439 uplinked yesterday or early this morning.... not saying we see it today or tomorrow, but I feel much better that we will see BTN sooner rather than later.

    Fox has the Big 12 TV contract and Mediacom needed permission from Fox to carry the game. BTW, Fox had no problem granting Mediacom permission to televise Iowa State's 2006 season opener.

    They wouldn't be testing it unless Charlie and the Big Ten came to an agreement for DISH to carry TBN, and as far as I remember, they haven't.

    Agreements are often announced as the channels become active.

    If these are BTNs they are just getting ready for the weekend and are encouraged enough by the current state of negotiations that they expect to be using the channel.

    It would be nice if E* would work out a multichannel mosaic of the channel on multi-game weekends.

    Now we're talking, They used to do that mosaic with mulitple cameras with the TBS games, but I don't think they are doing college football this year.

    According to the latest news, DISH and TBN aren't even close to an agreement. Charlie's still balking on paying the asking price.

    Sweet! Now I can rewatch the end of the Mich/App St. game again that I had to watch on my gloating brother's Directv system.
