Mike Pegram of IU's Rivals site just posted an extensive interview
of Mark Silverman, president of the BTN. Peegs did a great job. This is by far the most extensive comment I have seen from the BTN concerning the specific nature of the programming. If my BTN posts do not cause your eyes to glaze over, I highly recommend that you read the whole thing. The highlights:
DirecTV will have all of the regional feeds.
Except during the pre-conference portion of the football season, the BTN hopes to avoid regionalizing the coverage--for instance, they will stagger the start times of Wednesday evening basketball games to allow all games to air on the BTN.
The BTN will air classic games. Because the once-great Classic Sports Network has trasformed into the ESPN Poker/Boxing/Movie Network, this is good news.
