A big deal: Wisconsin Badger football fans have the opportunity to watch a full slate of Wisconsin football games on TV and online with no cable or satellite subscription.
A lot of folks have been talking about the Big Ten Network as a potential replacement for the CBS Sports Network and ESPN, so the Big Red Nation decided to give it a try and give it its own TV channel.
With the launch of the Badger Network, which will offer both live coverage of Wisconsin games and simulcasts of Wisconsin broadcasts, it looks like it might have the potential to become the Big East Network.
It will be available on a national network, as well as in 12 states including Wisconsin.
The network will be broadcast on Fox Sports 1 and will feature a weekly slate of games including games between Michigan State and Wisconsin.
Wisconsin Badgies head coach Gary Andersen will serve as a commentator on the network, and the Badgers will host the Big Game in 2019.
The BadgerNetwork is currently scheduled to begin its season in September with a pair of home games against Michigan State, and it will be a full-fledged Big Ten network.
It’s been a year since the Badggers went 11-2 in conference play and they’re poised to make some noise as they enter their fourth year in the Big 12.
It is unclear when the Big 10 Network will officially launch, but the network has been on the market for some time and was likely going to be on TV by mid-2018.
The Big Ten is a division of CBSSports.com.
