Another US collegiate volleyball viewing option

Following up on the post Watching US collegiate volleyball abroad, I found out about another viewing option. It’s the international version of the Big Ten Network. That covers all sports from the B1G Conference (new name since the conference is no longer just 10 teams). On the volleyball side of things, this conference features the likes of multiple-time national champions Penn State. It is generally considered to be alongside the Pac-12 (home of USC and UCLA, among others) as the strongest in US collegiate women’s volleyball.

Because the BTN is single conference in focus, it naturally has fewer matches than the ESPN Player site. It also has less diversity in terms of level of play and there is no men’s action. It does have a bit of a lower monthly price tag, though ($19.99 vs £17.99 which is north of $25). If you’re happy to just watch a few high quality matches each week or whatever, this is a lower cost option.
