BTN (the Big Ten Network) is launching a new multi-platform extension called BTN2Go.
The new feature will include a live feed of all BTN linear network programming, beginning with the start of the 2011 college football season, BTN president Mark Silverman announced Wednesday.
“We’re tremendously excited to launch BTN2Go because, as mobile technology has advanced, this is something fans are asking for,” Silverman said. “Big Ten fans are frequently on the go, and would like to watch BTN while away from home. BTN2Go gives fans that option at no additional cost to them.”
BTN2Go will only be available through BTN’s participating cable, satellite and telco distribution partners as an authenticated digital service to subscribers who already receive BTN. Subscribers can access the service via the Internet, iPad and iPhone, with specific launch dates forthcoming.
