COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Many Ohio State fans are scrambling for satellite TV as cable companies continue to hold out on the Big Ten Network.
Time Warner and other cable providers say the new network wants more money and clout than they're willing to give. The Big Ten conference wants the network offered in the standard package of channels, not as a premium channel.
As things currently stand, Buckeyes fans in central Ohio will be able to watch the season opener against Youngstown State and a few other games on the Big Ten Network only if they have DirecTV satellite service.
Companies that install satellite dishes say they're working from early morning to late night to meet all the demand.
