Mediacom Communications has reached an agreement with the Big Ten Network to carry the network’s programming, which is just in time for Saturday’s opening of the Big Ten college football season.

Mediacom will launch the Big Ten Network in phases on its expanded basic level of service in states with Big Ten universities. The agreement also includes the network’s high-definition (HD) and video-on-demand (VOD) programming.

Mediacom is the eighth-largest cable operator, and it offers traditional video services, digital television, VOD, digital video recorders, high-definition television, high-speed Internet access and telephony services.

The deal between Mediacom and the Big Ten Network comes on the heels of similar agreements that were struck by the network with Charter Communications (story here) and Time Warner Cable (story here) earlier this week.
