Network dispute could affect some Badger fans

The end of an agreement between Dish Network and the Big Ten Network could mean some Badger football games won’t be available for Dish customers.

In a letter to fans, University of Wisconsin-Madison Athletic Director Barry Alvarez states the agreement ends Saturday and coverage of Saturday’s game against Northern Iowa could be cut off for Dish customers.

It’s not clear if an agreement could be reached before Saturday’s kickoff.

Alvarez is encouraging Dish Network customers to contact their provider.
