Will Your Cable/Dish Carry the Pac-12 Network?

Over at the College Football Hotline blog Jon Wilner has been birddogging all Pac-12 conference related happenings including following all the micro-details around the Pac-12 network.

Are you going to get the Pac-12 network in your area? Here is Wilner:

*** On a teleconference Thursday, Pac-12 Enterprises CEO Gary Stevenson confirmed what we've suspected: Within the league's geographic footprint, the Pac-12 regional networks will be on basic cable or digital basic. Outside the footprint, the Pac-12 national network will likely be shown on tiers.

*** Channel assignments will be announced on or around Aug. 1.

*** Nothing new on negotiations with DirecTV and Dish (and others). But here's a valuable link to the Pac-12 Network channel locator, which gives you a direct avenue to the satellite companies (and others).

(Those following the situation closely may be heartened to see several Pac12Net matchups, notably San Diego State-Washington, Fresno State-Oregon, Oklahoma State-Arizona, Houston-UCLA and Cal-USC, that could provide some leverage in negotiations.)

*** Very important to remember: If you are an authenticated subscriber to one of the league's cable/internet partners, you can get Pac12Net games on any device anywhere (once you log in).

*** Now, a word (or many words) about distribution ...

Read rest of his take here. It looks like things could get a little tricky for Bruin fans living in other Pac-12 regions. But as Wilner noted the arrangements are still "fluid" as the conference is figuring out the most efficient way to distribute and package their programming.

GO BRUINS.
