Big Ten Network gives iPad, iPhone users access to live football games

Just in time for this weekend's games, the Big Ten Network has made its 24/7 BTN2Go app available for Apple's (Nasdaq: AAPL) iPad and iPhone in the App Store.

The live extension of the Big Ten Network gives authenticated users of some cable systems the ability to watch the network, live game telecasts and BTN television programming on a number of mobile devices. Currently, DirecTV (Nasdaq: DTV), Dish Network (Nasdaq: DISH), Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC), Charter (Nasdaq: CHTR) and Bright House are offering BTN2Go to subscribers.

Users also get on-demand access to BTN's video archive, including current season games from the Big Ten Conference's television partners. They aso have access to original series such as The Journey, Big Ten Icons, Big Ten's Best and The Big Ten's Greatest Games, as well as game highlights and coaches shows.

"As mobile technology has advanced, BTN2Go is what our fans are asking for," said Mark Silverman, president of BTN. "BTN2Go gives authenticated subscribers the option to watch BTN while away from home at no additional cost."
