We have been unable to come to an agreement with the Big Ten Network. At this time, the Big Ten Network continues to require us to carry their channel as part of our Basic Plus Package at a cost of approximately $2,000,000 a year.  To summarize, the channel is too expensive.  Even though some customers may be able to afford it, there are lower income people and senior citizens that can't afford it.  Plus, there are customers that can afford it, but don't want the channel.
