Got this email form Big Ten Network:

Attention DIRECTV Subscribers:

Beginning today, the Big Ten Network will reside 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.

Yes, except that the 609 "primary" overflow channel will not be available until some time in September (23rd?) when ESPNU moves from that spot.

Does anyone have any new info on the BTN alternate feeds? I see where there are 5 12pm games on BTN August 30. From what I can find the main overflow channels mentioned, 612 and 609, won't be available until Sept 10 and Sept 24 when Fuel and ESPNU move.

They will probably stay in the 220 area where BTN used to be until they can be moved.

And what channel is ESPNU moving to? And when? Are they gonna put it with the other ESPNs? I know it's gonna be in HD around the 28th of the month ...

The old overflow channels, 218, 218-1, 219, 219-1 are gone.
Maybe channel additions and moves sooner than we thought, like this week instead of September.

I would think they may want to work a lot of that out prior to college football starting at the EOM.
