    If this has been answered I apologize, but I see 610 will carry Ohio State-Youngstown State. Last year we had a few overflow channels for the BTN, will we get that this year and if so where? I need the PSU-Coastal Carolina game.

    posted by someone before in another thread, here ya go:

    The Big Ten Network now resides on channel 610 as part of a system-wide realignment that includes other sports networks. The Big Ten Network will continue to be available on DIRECTV's CHOICE package.

    DIRECTV will continue to offer additional football games on "overflow" channels. The primary "overflow" channels will be 609 and 612. Additional games may also reside on channels 608, 611, 615, 617 and 623 when necessary. When produced in HD, DIRECTV will carry each "overflow" game in HD as well. Check your on-screen channel guide or BigTenNetwork.com for specific game assignments throughout the season. For a complete listing of DIRECTV's system-wide realignment of sports networks, click here

    609 is ESPNU
    612 is FUEL


    623 has opened up and 617 is available.

    I know 615 Setanta is moving, but DTV is waiting to the last minute to do this.

    A little research on your part would have gotten you your answers. ESPNU is moving on Sept 24th, and Fuel is moving on Sept 10th. It's on the Directv website.

    Thats great, but games start August 30th... That maybe two weeks worth of not knowing where the overflow stations will be at.

    I also knew when them two were moving, but are they moving before the season starts?
