CHICAGO — The Big Ten Conference announced on Tuesday that a record-setting 64 Big Ten volleyball matches will be televised nationally on Big Ten Network, FOX, FS1 and FS2 for the 2023 season. The announcement comes prior to the start of Big Ten Volleyball Media Days at the BTN Studios in Chicago.
Big Ten Network will broadcast at least 55 matches, the most in network history, featuring all 14 conference schools on linear television. In addition, more than 145 matches will be streamed exclusively on B1G+, BTN’s subscription service. BTN coverage begins Aug. 25 with the Big Ten/Big 12 Challenge doubleheader from Maturi Pavilion in Minneapolis, Minn. BTN will also air the Volleyball Day in Nebraska outdoor match between Nebraska-Omaha and Nebraska that will be played before a sold-out crowd at Memorial Stadium.
All Big Ten Network matches can be seen through its digital extension, the FOX Sports app, delivering live events and on-demand programming to Big Ten Network customers via the web, smartphones and tablets.
The FOX broadcast network will carry its first-ever Big Ten volleyball match on Oct. 29, featuring Ohio State at Michigan and Minnesota at Wisconsin in different markets. FS1 will televise an additional four matches, starting with Arizona at Wisconsin on Sept. 7.
The Big Ten Conference sent six teams to the NCAA Tournament last season and achieved record viewing audiences on television. BTN had its most-watched volleyball season ever in 2022, broadcasting four of the top five regular season volleyball matches on cable.
