    Not sure if anyone else lives in Big Ten Network territory and has Comcast, but I keep seeing hilarious "ads", and I throw the word ad around loosely, as it is giant propaganda, saying that the Big Ten Network says "No one watches unless EVERYONE PAYS!!!!" They show clips of badminton and what looks like David Lynch giving a lecture in black and white, then color football footage of programming they already provide.

    Anyone else see these funy ads, and if so, I need to get my hands on one for future laughs...

    For those out of the area, the Big Ten Network and Comcast are feuding in classic form over price and which plan it should be on, there are ads both ways, but the Comcast ones are a laugh riot.

    There are ads on both sides (from the BTN and the cable operators) slamming the other and inflating their own position. All they're successfully doing is annoying those of us who care about (and would like to watch) Big Ten athletics. I'm pretty sure the conference, Insight/Comcast, and the BTN have all sold out the loyal fans and there's nothing we can do about it.

    That being said, I don't really have any desire to move to DirecTV or Dish (as those are the only carriers in my area that have it,) in part because of the Series 3 and its ties to cable. I just hope they get things figured out by basketball season.
