Insight, BTN reach carriage agreement
The operator will carry BTN on its Classic service in Columbus, Ohio, and Evansville, Ind. Insight will also carry the channel on its digital platform in all of its Kentucky systems, which include Louisville, northern Kentucky, Lexington and Bowling Green.
BTN launches today, offering fans 39 football games, 140 regular-season basketball games, more than 55 women’s basketball games and the Big Ten Championships. The channel will also offer soccer, field hockey, volleyball, baseball and wrestling coverage, as well as all of the other NCAA championship sports.
Comcast is willing to make the network part of its Sports Entertainment Package, but BTN wants to be an expanded basic channel.
