no stars non-option 1/5
don’t waste your $ on this trash app. connectivity crap, doesn’t work with any streaming devices (except airplay which is grainy and non-HD) and times out after 30 minutes, and then get this: IT CHARGES YOU TO WATCH ADDITIONAL COMMERCIALS!! Money-grubbing b-holes running this pathetic garbage-show. Unsubscribe immediately.
Bought btn plus, doesn’t work 1/5
I recently bought the annual pass for one school, purdue. I am able to watch it on a roku but I am not able to see it on my phone. Every time I press the watch button for a purdue game on btn plus it says I need to buy the subscription even though I am signed in and there is a check on the btn plus part. Waste of money if I am not able to watch it on my phone.
Glitchy, buggy, unreliable, no AppleTV support 1/5
When it is kinda working, the video quality is low. Meanwhile, ESPN works great on the same internet connection. Also how hard is it to add support for AppleTV?
Takes forever to authenticate. Streams buffer every few minutes. Bad. Good idea, terrible execution.
Money grab 1/5
1 rating strictly due to btn plus.
Purchased a 1 mont subscription. Every event I wanted to watch said technical difficulties. Never got to watch anything. Do not subscribe to this mess.
Just don’t understand 1/5
They charge over $16 a month for this service and broadcast quality is atrocious! Don’t blame my internet provider because ESPN 3 and other streaming services work beautifully.
They must know they’re putting out an inferior product but don’t seem to care. Really taking advantage of consumer with a poor product and a high price. Shame on you
Money Hungry 1/5
By Shaull Family
Charging to watch the lesser sports and games that don’t appear on Cable seems like a money grab considering every school gets as much as they do. Especially when there are 5 alternate channels for BTN that show nothing. Consider selling advertising and broadcasting for free. Unless you don’t want anyone to watch these events. Then continue as is.
Can share w/ 6 family members🤣 1/5
Why try when it doesn’t work for me!!!!!!! 119.95 down the tubes! Hey. BTN!!! Call me if u care cuz i do!!!!!
Paid for BTN plus but no service 1/5
By full moon party
Frustrating that they decide to charge extra for certain games yet after paying $$.....inviting people over to watch etc......no game feed is available
Absolutely horrible 1/5
Paying 15 a month, for nothing to load, and when it does horrible quality.
Stinks! Waste of money 1/5
By mad at BTN2GO
Doesn't even stream the games another big ten money grab
Works, but needs improvement 3/5
It works, I like how I can replay games commercial-free the next day.
But the video quality is not great, audio quality is even worse.
Would be nice to have an AppleTV app. It’s not too bad though since the app allows me to AirPlay in the background.
By Ovaltine Jenkins
The app never works properly. Sometimes it restarts in fits. Other times during live action it will go to coverage of some other game. This network has been around 10 years but everything they do looks amateur.
Awful Video Quality!!! 1/5
Watching games through this app is seriously awful. The quality is horrible and blurry, especially when you’re trying to cast it to the tv through a Chromecast extension. I don’t understand why this hasn’t been fixed since this has been a problem for the past few years.
Also, I hate that during commercial breaks the app just shows a blue screen with the logo. Why can’t they actually show commercials like the Sunday Ticket?
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE fix the quality problems with this app so that we can actually see the games!
Perhaps worst sport app in store 1/5
1. Forgets TV provider every time I use it.
2. Streaming games never works, or only work for a minute or two. Stream commercials perfect every time (guess we know what is important).
3. No AppleTv support, Airplay works as well as streaming.
4. The app used to work, or work better but as of now the app is a joke.
I bought a BTN+ sub and the game I bought it for had technical difficulties. Their support rather than apologize and refund me simply said to contact Apple.
Always frozen 1/5
This is app pretty bad. Miss 90% of the games I watch on it because it’s usually frozen and/or lagging. Been like this for years, not sure it hasn’t been improved.
Monthly subscription FAIL 1/5
I was able to pay and login the first time. A few months later, I paid for another month but was unable to use. Contacted customer service through live chat and was basically told they couldn't help. Wasted two hours only to get a refund through Apple. Will not purchase again.
Too much for too little 2/5
I never write reviews, but felt the need here. App seems to work ok, but the pricing is ridiculous. I already pay for the BTN through my cable provider, so paying another subscription for BTN "Plus" is just a rip off in my opinion. Just another way for them to squeeze money out of people. This app is worthless unless you spend the money on the subscription.
Greed kills, big ten 1/5
The fact I now have to pay extra to see a so called “plus” game is. Rhonda obnoxious, I have to pay to see the Indiana game tonight and I won’t do it. And I have just decided I am canceling my sports tier. This is just a cash grab too far for me. Living in the Chicago area I am already paying a fortune for BTN. I refuse to be squeezed like a wet sponge.
There is no point to this app. You can only watch games that are nationally televised unless you pay for a huge subscription. The only reason I had this app was to watch Maryland games that weren’t on TV for free. This app is a complete joke.
Pay twice 1/5
So I pay for Big10 Network in my tv package and then I have to come here and pay as well for what by many reviews seems to be subpar service. Hard pass from me!
Horrible App 1/5
I bought a subscription on my iPad but it’s not transferable to my pc desktop. I tried to chat with a rep from BTN but got nowhere.
Now my iPad says I don’t have a subscription even though I paid for it.
I only gave the app 1 star because I had to in order to write a review. It’s not worth one star
By MKE Badger
Honestly I don’t use the app all that much, so I can’t comment on the video streaming in the current version (though the last time I used it I had to restart the app every 20 minutes or so). The only real reason I have it is for the keyboard which I cannot use in iOS 11 apparently.
BTN plus does not work 1/5
By Yucky couch
Signed up for BTN plus but I still cant get access to the games. No explanation. I tried to purchase again, but i am told that the subscription was already purchased.
Cannot sign out 1/5
I cannot sign out of the tv provider account I no longer use and sign in with my new account. I have closed the app, deleted it and redownloaded it and it continues to log me in with my old account and does not give an option to enter a different username and password
I normally don't do this 1/5
I normally don't write reviews, but this app has to be one of the worst streaming apps I've ever encountered. It has one job: to stream football games that I want to watch and it fails miserably at this. I'm using an iPad to watch the game and he refuses to allow airplay mirroring in fact, it crashes the entire app. Good job guys, time to pirate the stream.
Skip this App 1/5
Unless you want to pay a lot of money to watch games forget this app. Anything worth watching is under the big ten plus. Even an exhibition game.
Awful navigation 1/5
Just trying to find a previously recorded game to watch is a nightmare. Watching a live feed often requires reloading the APP after commercial break. Do you get paid for doing this?
Emojis do not work! 1/5
Had to reinstall and cannot get emojis back on the keyboard. Can no longer trash text with friends. :-(
Leaves much to be desired. Freezes or skips after almost every commercial
GARBAGE VIDEO QUALITY 1/5
BTN what have you done with the video quality?! The quality is garbage. Streaming at 480p? Really? I can't even see the ball on a large screen TV.
Terrible Video Quality 1/5
No Apple TV support. (Yes, you can AirPlay from an iDevice but come on.)
I have absolutely no problem streaming live video from ESPN or any other app but the video quality on BTN Plus games (which cost EXTRA) are the worst. So pixelated it’s hard to tell what’s happening. We often end up just turning the games off because they’re so hard to watch. Audio often jumps ahead of video, frequent buffering problems... you’d never know this is the same group that successfully runs their own TV network.
Tv provider not an option 1/5
I use F&B Communications. I am able to watch BTN on my TV through this cable provider.
Why do I need a cable provider? 2/5
Why can’t I just pay for access to the app? I’m not home enough to justify a cable or satellite subscription.
Total piece of CRAP!! Won't even let me sign in!
Bad app 2/5
This app doesn't load half the time and when it does it runs slow. Hgggkjvvhh bgghjj bbgd hgfs. Ghgbghhhnb. hjjkggh
Yet to ever get it to work 1/5
Can’t even get past tv provider sign in. This is just a terrible app. Easier to just search for your game online somewhere else.
Does the basics as a scoreboard, but... 1/5
The app won’t even let me login to my provider, Spectrum, so I can’t even watch the games on my phone.
Sign in for Charter Spectrum doesn’t work. Useless app
It's nice to watch the game. But it continuously freezes. Very frustrating to watch a game live.
BTN2Go App is improving. 4/5
So, I need to update my review, as of 10/14/2017. I reluctantly went back to the BTN2Go app this afternoon, because I was desperate to watch my alma mater football team play. I'm happy to report that the freezing issues during commercials, has been resolved. Thank you, thank you, thank you to the developers who resolved the issues I experienced earlier in the season. Not a single incident of freezing during the entire game. Keep up the great work.
Original review around 9/8/2017, below:
I have to restart the feed at every commercial break because it freezes and gets stuck. I missed much of my "watched" games. Ridiculous! Developers, please test more thoroughly and fix.
Log on to my account last night so I can renew by BTN Plus for hockey season and paid $9.99 for the month so I can enjoy Penn State hockey. Now I can’t even access my account. I get pop up saying I have too many email addresses linked to this account. WTH, I only have one email address. Between BTN and iTunes, someone is making money off this ripoff.
this app is horrible. make sure it works before you publish it. abs
Technically it works, but it's a pretty bad experience 2/5
Pros: technically, the app streams content. The interface is fast and relatively easy to navigate.
- No native Apple TV support - you must mirror your phone's display, so you cannot watch games in HD. Video and audio are noticeably worse compared to similar apps (ESPN, FOX Sports, etc.).
- The commercials are honestly twice as loud as the content, if not louder. It literally hurts to use this app if you have your volume turned up.
- The app doesn't always switch back to games during commercial breaks. You have to restart the entire app to get back into a stream, meaning you often miss things.
Overall, this app creates a poor viewing experience. You're honeslty better off using a pirate stream, as they have higher quality video and don't crash every 15-30 minutes. It's bizarre that BTN can't create a competent app with all the money they have.
Not iOS 11 friendly 1/5
The former keyboard emoji app extra doesn’t work with iOS 11 and the app is clunky. As others have said it is ad filled and clunky and tends to crash.
I already pay for this station in my cable package. Why I must be subject to so many ads is beyond me not to mention the big ten plus cash grab. Delaney is so darned money grubbing. No wonder these players feel used
Doesn't work 1/5
By The man147
Consistently tells me I don't have access when I'm watching BTN on my TV. Crap app that doesn't work, don't waste your time!
Where’s the appletv app? 1/5
Where’s the appletv app? I do not want to airplay from my other devices.
This app used to work wonderfully. In the latest version I purchased a BTN Plus subscription, signed in with my TV provider, if I try to watch ANYTHING. The apps says I don’t have a subscription (even though the iTunes and Touch ID all verified the purchase) and it says that even though I’m seemingly signed in with my provider, that I don’t have access. Unbelievable.
