BTN, DISH Network reach agreement

Good news for DISH Network subscribers in Big Ten country.

The Big Ten Network and DISH have reached an agreement in principle for DISH to carry BTN programming, including today's football games. The sides reached a short-term agreement for last week's games, but the new pact is expected to be much longer when it's finalized, the Big Ten Network said in a news release.

Three Big Ten games kick off on BTN today: Minnesota-New Hampshire, Iowa-Iowa State and Northwestern-Vanderbilt.
