The article reports on the carriage negotiations between two cable operators, Comcast and the Big Ten Network. James Delany, Big Ten Conference commissioner, and David Cohen, executive vice president of Comcast, talked about the distribution of the startup service that will offer archival action and live sports events. Delany labeled Cohen's remarks as disparaging for describing Big Ten's programming as "second and third-choice games," compared to "first-choice" games on other cable companies.
