Big Ten Network To Double Number of Streamed Events

Chicago, IL, September 17, 2009.

“CHICAGO – The Big Ten Network will double its commitment to several Olympic sports this season by streaming at least 200 live events on The network has made a significant financial investment to provide fans with a high-quality streaming experience that is comparable to watching a game in high definition.

The streaming initiative will offer two major benefits. First, it will allow fans to follow teams and sports that for the most part received significantly less coverage than other sports. And second, students on campus will have the opportunity to help produce the streamed events and learn more about television sports production, a highly competitive field. Furthermore, the 200 streamed events are in addition to the more than 350 events already airing on the network, creating a total of approximately 550 campus events the Big Ten Network is bringing to fans.

The first streamed event scheduled for is Saturday’s Penn State-Temple women’s volleyball match, which will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Rec Hall. The No. 1 ranked Nittany Lions are scheduled to make six appearances on the Big Ten Network and five additional matches will be streamed on”
