    They ARE on.....but if they weren't what would this have to do with DTV anyway? If DTV didn't carry the game no other provider would be either.

    And that's Direct TV's fault how? Spend a little money and upgrade to 3rd qtr 2010 technology and you might surprised.

    Since you have an older box, it does not have the memory to display all the channels.

    1 - DirecTV does not make programming decisions on what games the channels it carries cover.

    2 - EVERY Big 10 game not on some other channel is on Big 10 Network or one of its alternate channels.

    3 - A STB upgrade is probably FREE.

    You probably should think before flying into a rage.

    Be nice, he's a Ohio State nut (thats what Buckeyes are)... He's just enjoying playing a Big 10 schedule so that he can get to a game where his heart is torn out by someone from the SEC!!!:lol::lol:

    What was screwy about that game was it was listed intially on 610 I believe. I know because I set it to record the game earlier in the week, but when I checked 5 minutes in, it was recording a different game on that channel. I then noticed the game was on 611-1.

    So sometime during the week, they changed the channel it was showing on.

    And for reference, I'm a Bobcat fan :) thus it wasn't worth recording anyway :(

    Big Ten home games, at least. Northwestern at Rice wasn't on TV anywhere.
