Most fans like to see BTN because it shows ALL of the schools not just the most popular. While ESPN, FOX, Fox Sports, etc show Big Ten games it is only the one that THEY want, not what you want. While on a typical night they might show Michigan State or Ohio St, but Rutgers, Illlinois, Indiana, Nebraska, Iowa, etc are NOT shown on their channel. BTN was the one place you could go to see all of the ones not covered by ESPN, FOX, etc. Also, they don't show baseball or any other sports. In fact, if you look, ESPN seems to be SEC heavy on most of there coverage.
Your answer doesn't match the facts.

Funny but that isn't what BTN is saying. If what you are saying is the case why do I get other sports channels that are of no importance to me (such as PAC 12 for example) here in the Southeast. The BTN network is just that, all BIG, all the time!! There isn't a replacement for this that shows baseball, softball, soccer, wrestling, basketball, etc, for both men and women. I would guess that there are quite a few alumni and fans from Big Ten schools located out of the "footprint".
With that being said, how much will my cable bill go down or are you going to just stuff some lame supposed sports channel in its place at a smaller cost to you but keep charging me BTN prices? You need to change this back or that sound you hear is the money you will lose going down the drain from the Big Ten Conference fans leaving Comcast for other opportunties. People are cutting the cord and with this type of behavior on your part is it any wonder why? Somehow I believe that is really your plan to get them to stream, then start jacking up the internet access prices and not have to deal <Edited for violating forum guidelines: "Inflammatory">
I have been a cable customer for years and have continued to pay your increasing prices as you add channels that provide no benefit to me but understand that someone out there seems to like it, but this move of yours might just be the straw that broke the camels back.
As another network use to say (one I don't watch anymore) I WANT MY BTN!!!!
