Is there going to be any TV coverage for BIG 10 meets this year? So far there's been none.

I could be wrong but if you look back I vaguely recall posting a thing last season early on freaking out about no free meets, because they weren't listed on the calendar ahead of time. But they ended up being broadcast on TV like normal and showing up on the site like normal.

I suspect the same holds true this year. The clue is the league championships aren't listed as being BTN+ broadcasts, they aren't listed at all. So. Obviously those will be broadcast. Meaning like last year they'll just not tell you ahead of time on the site calendar but they'll be available afterward. I haven't combed thru the whole schedule of all the BT teams but I suspect it'll be a handful of major meets free just like last year, one a week or almost every week, and then the two Big 5 meets, then the two sessions of the championship.

tl, dr: I think they only list BTN+ meets ahead of time on the calendar. All broadcast meets only show up after broadcast. But we'll see.

Yea i'm looking at Michigan's schedule and it lists @Maryland as being BTN Delay (meaning free on TV but not live, then free on the BTN site), the big 5 as being BTN delay, and the championship as being BTN. As well as a BTN+ meet. Michigan only getting one regular season free meet does indicate there won't be many this year, tho. Or maybe they're spreading it more fairly this year.

BTN+ is just school-broadcast stuff. It's presumably HD720 and mostly filmed from ground level and with multi-angles but I don't believe it's filmed by the BTN, I think it's filmed by school broadcast teams. The only thing I've ever seen from it was a couple meets NastiaFan posted in previous years which were BTN but not regular BTN (I think they were + meets given away on some gimmick program). They were filmed well enough. I almost paid for all of them last year but finally decided not to. It's a value question. There's enough out there where we see all the gymnasts and teams we want, at some point, if we know how to look for them. And all the key meets end up available w/o paying.

As a preview of what a 'school-broadcast meet' looks like, check out some of the MAC meets on ESPN3, which I think are by the schools. It's hit or miss - some look really arty and close up, some shoot the floor routines from the rafters.

If someone wants to hook me up with a BTN+ login & pass I'll be happy to capture them.

Thor -
How much does it cost? can you post a link? are the vids downloadable? I'm willing to pay (if the cost is reasonable) and give you the password, it's the least I can give back to the wonderful people here  Very Happy

iirc it's about $100 for the BTN+

i can sometimes screen record a few mins of a meet, but not the whole meet.
