New Customer - Big Ten Network in TX?

Just hooked up my X1.  Left DirecTV after 20yrs.

 

Big Ten Network?  In Texas, 77382.

 

Chat was worthless, as the agent had no idea how to get the channel, said it wasn't part of the sports package.

 

Yet, when I tune to the channel, it says that I can get it with a subscription.  Doesn't tell me what subscription however.

There was a big fight between Comcast and Fox (owners of the Big Ten Network) last year over who would get the channel at what level.

 

It is a little confusing. Apparently, if you don't live in a state with a Big Ten school - and Texas does not - then it is part of the Sports & Entertainment Package. However, you might want to confirm just what is in that package where you live before you decide whether or not to pay the extra $10 or so a month for it.
