I know this used to exist in my guide, but I can't find the regular or HD version of this channel. What channel numbers should the Big 10 Network be on? Is there some special package I have to have to get them? I used to have them and haven't changed any part of my HD/AT250 package.

So that's new right? So in essence they took away a channel for me. That is totally bogus. What does the sports package bring?

That page lists all channels that may be available, even all of the RSNs. A the top of the page it says

You can receive your local Regional Sports Network based on your immediate geographical area, as determined by your ZIP code. (There may be more than one RSN available in your area.) Click here for information on RSN and Local Channel Eligibility

Note; The Dish web site is not always completely accurate. If you are not in a BT state, you have to get the All Sports package to get BTN.

That's funny, I thought I saw on Dish's very own website about the AT250 listing Big 10 Network.

http://www.dishnetwork.com/content/whats_on_dish/programming_packages/at_250/packages.aspx

Yep, there it is. Doesn't say anything about sports package or free preview...its listed as a channel that is part of the AT250.

SO WHERE IS IT!?
ebaltz,
Yes you see it on that page, plus you see a bunch of Fox sports Regional channels, Madison Square Garden, Sports South, New England, ComCast and lots of others.
You only get like they say at the top "You can receive your local Regional Sports Network based on your immediate geographical area, as determined by your ZIP code. (There may be more than one RSN available in your area.) Click here for information on RSN and Local Channel Eligibility"
BigTen was removed from the at the End of last football season, it was all over the place and in the old Bronze, Gold, Platinum levels of the OLD HD it did have a * next to it. 9 months later its going to be hard to find the Platinum Level page Dish used to have, its changed to much. Just look at all the sports channels on that page, and you will see you only get whats in your region, Big Ten is no different than any other Regional Sports Channel. Want other regions you have to get the Multi Sports Package.

This link at the bottom shows what states BTN is included in.

When it was introduced it was stated it was on free preview for everyone. They didn't take it away from you, they gave it to you for free last year.

To receive BTN after the free preview:

If you are IN the Big Ten region: Need to subscribe to AT100+ (or higher)
If you are OUTSIDE the Big Ten region: Need to subscribe to AT100+ (or higher) "AND" the Multi Sports Pack ($5.99 per month)
