Sling is Launching Big Ten Network





Soccer fans watching game

Big Ten Football is back and Sling is helping football fans keep up with their favorite teams by adding Big Ten Network.

Back in December, Sling shared that NBTN would be added to its channel lineup ahead of the 2020-2021 college football season, after the channel was removed from Sling’s parent company Dish during a dispute with Fox.

Sling says the channel will officially launch on the streaming service tomorrow, October 22, ahead of Big Ten games kicking off this weekend. You can get the channel by adding the Sports Extra ($10/month) to a Sling Blue ($30/month) subscription, making it one of the most affordable options for watching BTN.

If you’re new to Sling TV, you can try it out with a three day free trial.

Here’s the BTN schedule for this weekend:

Friday, October 23

  • Illinois at #14 Wisconsin at 8 p.m. ET

Saturday, October 24

  • Rutgers at Michigan State at 12 p.m. ET
  • Iowa at Purdue at 3:30 p.m. ET
  • Maryland at Northwestern at 7:30 p.m. ET
