Connecting millions of fans with their favorite teams
A day from the kickoff of the 2012 football season, the biggest question we’re getting from fans is this: “Will I get to see my team’s game?”
And when you look at the great teams our schools are fielding this year and the history that’s being made – from new coaches to renovated stadiums and more – the last thing we want is for Pac-12 fans to miss out on the games they want.
We designed Pac-12 Networks to give our diverse fan base the games they want – six regional networks devoted to their hometown teams’ live events and off-the-field programming, and one national network that delivers the best of what’s happening across the Pac-12 Conference.
So why are seven networks better than one? It means our fans get programming that’s tailored to them. If you’re a Beavers fan living in Portland, you’ll get Oregon State home football games and dozens of other live events through Pac-12 Oregon. If you’re a Arizona student living on the other side of town, you won’t miss the Wildcats’ big matchup against Oklahoma State on September 8 through Pac-12 Arizona. And if you’re a Pac-12 fan living on the East Coast, you can get a huge selection of live events through Pac-12 National.
This regionalized approach allows us to deliver games to the broadest number of fans as possible – in fact, more fans can watch Pac-12 sports than at any time in history. Does it mean that every Pac-12 fan can tune in and watch every game he or she wants, like the Utes football fan living in Louisiana? While we’d like it that way – and have offered all seven of our networks to all of our distribution partners – it’s up to each provider to decide what content to make available to customers.
So here’s what you can do:
Stay updated on what’s on all seven of our Pac-12 Networks, including the one in your area, through our new schedule. If you want to see something that’s on a Network that you don’t currently receive, check out Pac-12 Now, which allows fans who subscribe to one of our participating television distributors to watch live at Pac-12.com and, later this fall, through apps for iPad, iPhone and Android.
If you don’t currently get the Pac-12 Networks – tell your television provider you want it.
