The Big Ten Network reached a carriage agreement with Charter Communications that will make the network available to subscribers in Big Ten territories in Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio and Illinois. The network and the cable operator said they are working to get the network up and running to expanded basic customers in time for Saturday’s college football openers. After a long logjam with major cable operators, Big Ten Network struck a deal with Comcast in June. The agreement, in which the network receives about 70 cents per subscriber in Big Ten markets, has served as a template for deals with other operators. The network announced a deal with Time Warner Cable earlier this week. Read the joint statement by Charter and Big Ten Network.
