West Coast is the Best Coast (Pac-12 Network)

Postby Sandrock » Wed Jul 27, 2011 6:36 pm

NEW YORK -- The Pac-12 will launch national and regional conference television networks next year.

Commissioner Larry Scott announced Wednesday at an East Coast football media day in Manhattan that the Pac-12 had partnered with cable companies Comcast, Cox, Time Warner and Bright House. There will be a national network along with six regional channels: Washington, Oregon, Northern California, Southern California, Arizona and Mountain.

Once the networks launch in August 2012, they will broadcast about 850 sporting events a year -- 350 nationally and 500 regionally. Subscribers will also be able to watch games on mobile devices.

Every football and men's basketball game will be televised nationally. The conference already had a 12-year television contract worth about $3 billion with Fox and ESPN, which will air many of the most high-profile games.


Satellite services and more cable providers to be announced as contracts are signed.

Nationwide? Yes. Satellite TV? Maybe.

Little snip from this link

If no additional carriers of the family of networks emerge, it will reach nearly 40 million cable subscribers. But the possibility remains that satellite providers will reach an agreement with the conference, extending the network's reach across the country.

Man, do I hope I get this. The more football the better. I'll be DVRing games like crazy and watching them all week. Between this and the Big Ten Network, I may not watch anything but football from the end of August until the first week in January.
