Along comes tBTN selling me - the customer - on the fact that not only will I get great Buckeye football coverage, I'll also get some of the less-covered sports like track, basketball, and wrestling. Well then - fantastic! Great for the customer. Until reality hits.

tBTN sells its coverage of Ohio State football so now I am forced to watch NW v. Purdue - A GAME I DID NOT AND DO NOT WANT TO WATCH. I want to watch Ohio State play football and up until this point, I could. Now I can't. tBTN NOW sells its coverage for wrestling and I can't watch it! So I shelled out X amount of dollars and get NOTHING in return?

BTN2GO is even more of a fleecing act put on by tBTN! We'll get you limited coverage for B1G action and then we'll make you pay AGAIN for more of the same on your wireless device!

Again, tBTN is a sham. Absolutely fleece-fest.
I am totally confused. I watch OSU football every week so not sure why you can not. Regardless, BTN still will have big duals and B10 Tourney Finals on the network. The Flo deal does not change any of that.

Their contract with the Big10 is not taking the sport backwards but is a huge advance bringing more coverage to the sport than ever before. Their success will drive more coverage to mainstream outlets. BTW, B10 Network and ESPN are not free, anyway. FLo is doing a terrific job and as a fan, I'm happy to pay the $150. If you don't see value that is totally fine, but to criticize as bad for the sport is pretty misguided.

Hey not everyone can afford $150 have you ever thought of that? To me it could be $39.99 and they would still sell out to those who will pay it. To me it's still ''greed'' and I won't pay it in fact can't afford it.

BTW putting more "not less" wrestling on TV is how to push it not on the computer.

Just my opinion since you offered yours.

Heard this complaint before about FLO more than once. For $150 they should/must do a better job.

SWEEEET! Watched Michigan/Arizona St on Facebook Live...and Today...Buckeyes on "Buckeye Vision". Bull Flo!
Worse than Time Warner cornering OHSAA and not broadcasting. (Then OHSAA contacted our AD threatening sanctions because our wrestling page FB Lived the matches....smh)

I'm afraid your going to have to get used to it. The future of TV is streaming services. Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and the like.
