Maryland's season-opening game against James Madison Saturday will not be available to DISH Network customers, a Big Ten Network spokeswoman said.
The game kicks off in College Park at 3:30 p.m.
“The Maryland-James Madison game will not be seen on DISH today in the state of Maryland,” the Big Ten Network said in a statement. “DISH is the only major pay-TV provider to reject BTN's offer to make Maryland games on BTN available to its customers within the state. All other major pay-TV providers in Maryland will carry the Terrapins’ games.”
A DISH Network spokeswoman said the dispute came down to money.
“Big Ten Network is requiring that DISH pay a significant additional charge to carry University of Maryland and Rutgers University home games in their home states," a network statement said. "We are unwilling to pass these costs on to our customers.”Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
