That sucks ... per (admittedly speculative) reports right after Big Ten Media Days, we were supposed to play Purdue at 6:30 pm on NBC this week, and Iowa was supposed to play MSU at 2:30 pm on Peacock. So, there is plenty of ammo for those who think our "poor start" (and maybe even more so Purdue's 1-2 start, given their SOS) helped relegate us to Peacock this week.

From a strictly "get the win" perspective, this is probably ideal. Purdue has a pretty good record of winning home games at night, and we really need to pick up this W.

We have Peacock. However, some have said the feed was terrible for a game they watched. So. I am concerned.

I am subscribed to Peacock. The feed is perfectly fine. It's actually a decent broadcast (better than ESPN imo) if you get past having to pay a subscription fee for it. But this is pretty disappointing that as we struggle we move further away from a big time broadcast to behind a paywall.

As to the game, it is going to be incredibly hard, but we must win this one.

Set up yet another reoccurring charge to get access to a streaming service for one football game when I have absolutely zero interest in any of that platform’s other content:

respect my decision™
This is a "You need to subscribe to this very specific service otherwise you're out of luck or need an eye patch" situation, isn't it?

100%

As to stream quality, am assuming it'll be VVG, at a minimum. Have been a Peacock subscriber for years (EPL footy) and the picture quality is uniformly excellent.

Totally get the carping. That said, this is the world in which we live. Want to watch your team? Ante up.

Am I missing something or is it not glaringly obvious that our game @ Purdue will be much more watchable and entertaining than both MSU @ Iowa & Michigan @ Nebraska?

SMH @ Fox and NBC. MSU is a corpse at this point. Nebraska is a modern-day Benny Hill episode.

Just as the wages of sin is death, the wages of 5 TOs and multiple short-field PSU possessions is apparently Peacock.

I'm more ticked about changing the game time. I'm going on the bus trip over and had to set up a dog sitter, don't know if it'll still work now.

Ugh. It will be interesting when the season ends how many times we got relegated to the C*ck.
I would be surprised if it is TOO many. While Peacock is clearly an unenviable TV position, NBC also seems to be pushing "decent" games on that platform to try to drive subscription revenue. They have already had Michigan, Penn State and MSU vs. a top 10 Washington team on Peacock so far. In other words, while it sucks and I'm sure it cuts into our ratings, it's not the same as getting dumped to ESPNU. Looking at our remaining games...

vs. Florida Atlantic: 2:30 pm on BTN
at Purdue: 2:30 pm on Peacock
vs. Nebraska: Friday at 7:00 pm on FS1
at Maryland: TBD officially ... however, it was reported earlier this year that it would be 11:00 am on Peacock. :mad:
vs. Wisconsin: TBD ... likely to get a decent TV slot. OSU/PSU will get the best one this week, and two games are said to be on NBC - Minnesota/Iowa at 2:30 pm and Michigan/MSU at 6:30 pm. It's possible the Illini/Wisconsin game could be meaningful for the West, and I think they would at least want it on BTN.
at Minnesota: TBD ... it was reported that Iowa/Northwestern at Wrigley would be at 2:30 pm on Peacock, though, so hopefully that is true!
vs. Indiana: TBD ... it was similarly reported earlier that Minnesota/Purdue would be at 11:00 am on Peacock, so hopefully this once again means we are clear of that.
at Iowa: TBD ... but I think this will get a good TV spot. It very well might be for the West in an optimistic scenario for us.
vs. Northwestern: TBD ... definitely possible, but I could see this one being on like ESPNU, lol. We deliver decent ratings, but NU brings literally nothing to the table.

I agree with you 90% of the time @altgeld88 , but not here. MSU has the storyline of the ongoing scandal and MICHIGAN visiting NEBRASKA can provide all sorts of championship history. Illinois (currently perceived by most of the world as "same old Illinois") at Purdue is a big meh to anyone outside those fan bases.

Fair enough, my friend. This is, among many reasons, why I'm not fit to be a TV programming exec. Or intern, for that matter.

I don't have Peacock. Good thing I'll be in the stands for the first time since 2008. :illinois:

Good. I don’t care where or when I to watch the game. I only care about winning the game. Would rather play Purdue during the day with a less rowdy crowd than under the lights after a full day of tailgating.

I don’t think Peacock wants to have a school have multiple games on there unless it has to. They want people to subscribe and then forget they did. Looks like there are 2 more Peacock games unless they add more.

Works for me. I already have my subscription because of WWE (got grandfathered in when WWE Network moved over there) and English Premier League so this won't be an issue for me at all.
