We reported here on Friday that Mediacom had reached an agreement with the Big Ten Network which would allow cable subscribers access to Iowa's first three nonconference games on the channel. Well, it apparently took both sides four days to iron out the details, but the deal was finally made official today. The Big Ten Network will be available on Mediacom's expanded basic tier in time for Saturday's opener. They will also carry BTN's high-definition channel and video-on-demand programming. 400,000+ Mediacom subscribers in the state of Iowa can now breath a collective sigh of relief. Enjoy the game Hawk fans!
