Big Ten Network and Comcast Deal Imminent

The Chicago Tribune is reporting that the Big Ten Network and Comcast have reached an agreement and the announcement will be made official later this week. The BTN did not compromise on it's initial demandthat the channel be made available on the expanded basic cable package. Comcast wanted to put the BTN on their premium sports tier that subscribers would have to subscribe to in order to get the BTN.

Originally, the BTN was asking $1.10 from Comcast per subscriber, but reports are that they will only receive $.70-$.80 in the final deal.

A deal has yet to be reached with Times Warner Cable which is the provider for most of Ohio, including Columbus.

Sounds like both sides gave a little ...
