Nov. 16 Pac-12 Networks viewer guide for Washington State fans

Washington State Athletics

Attention Coug fans! Here are a few things to note heading into Saturday's slate of programming on Pac-12 Networks:

Washington State men’s basketball vs. Lamar – LIVE JOIN IN PROGRESS Saturday immediately following Oregon State vs. Arizona State football, only on Pac-12 Washington

Following the conclusion of the Oregon State-Arizona State football game, Pac-12 Washington viewers will be taken immediately to the Washington State-Lamar men’s basketball game already in progress.

What does this mean for Pac-12 Washington viewers?

If you receive Pac-12 Washington, you will potentially miss the beginning of the Washington State-Lamar men’s basketball game, which tips off at 9:30 p.m. PT.

Pac-12 Networks must televise the Oregon State-Arizona State football game across all seven networks in its entirety, regardless of the state of the football game. However, as soon as the football game ends, Pac-12 Washington viewers will be taken to the Washington State-Lamar men’s basketball game as soon as possible and will not see the Pac-12 Football Postgame Report.

Due to technical reasons, it is not possible for viewers to watch Washington State-Lamar via Pac-12 Now or on Pac-12.com until the Oregon State-Arizona State football game is complete.

What does this mean for viewers on remaining Pac-12 Networks?

Following the conclusion of the Oregon State-Arizona State football game Saturday evening, viewers on any of the remaining networks (Pac-12 Network, Pac-12 Arizona, Pac-12 Bay Area, Pac-12 Los Angeles, Pac-12 Oregon, Pac-12 Washington) will see the Pac-12 Football Postgame Report.

If viewers do not have Pac-12 Washington and would like to see the Washington State-Lamar men’s basketball game live immediately following Oregon State-Arizona State football, the alternative is to authenticate your cable or satellite subscription via the Pac-12 Now app or at Pac-12.com to view Pac-12 Mountain on a computer or mobile device. You can find a list of providers that allow access via Pac-12 Now or Pac-12.com HERE.

For Comcast/XfinityTV customers who subscribe to the Pac-12 Networks, but do not get the Washington regional network at home you will be able to watch the game by logging in with your Comcast ID and password through XfinityTV. The direct link to Pac-12 Washington can be found HERE

What does this mean for DISH subscribers?

The Washington State-Lamar game is not being offered on an alternative channel for DISH subscribers, therefore you will receive the Pac-12 Postgame Report being aired on Pac-12 Networks. If DISH subscribers wish to view the Washington State-Lamar game, they must authenticate via the Pac-12 Now app or go to Pac-12.com to view Pac-12 Washington on their computer or mobile device.

We hope that this will help clarify the unique programming structure that will occur Saturday for Coug fans.
