The Big Ten Network announced Saturday that its agreement with DISH to carry games has expired.

The Big Ten Network released the following statement:

"As of September 14th, BTN's distribution agreement with Dish expired despite our best efforts to finalize an agreement. We are disappointed that Dish does not see the value in the network in the same way that so many of their customers do, including Big Ten students, alumni, fans and viewers across the country who continue to pay Dish for a channel they no longer receive."

BTN posted a notice on their website urging fans to switch to another provider so they won't miss games.
