Cox Communications to Add Pac-12 Network to Expanded Basic Tier in California and Arizona
All Pac-12 Football and Championship Events Available to Additional Subscribers
SAN FRANCISCO (July 14, 2016) – Pac-12 Networks confirmed today that Cox Communications – one of its founding partners – will add Pac-12 Network to its Essential tier in Arizona and designated home markets in California, expanding Pac-12 Networks coverage to additional Cox subscribers in Arizona and California. Cox previously carried only the Pac-12 Regional Sports Networks (e.g. Pac-12 Arizona, Pac-12 Los Angeles) in those markets that were focused on events from the home universities.
The addition of Pac-12 Network gives Cox subscribers access to all Pac-12 Networks content, including all 35 football games and more than 100 conference basketball games — including conference tournament games — plus 300 Olympic sports events and all Pac-12 championships.
“We are thrilled that one of our founding partners Cox is adding the Pac-12 Network, our national feed, to the Cox lineup for subscribers in Arizona and Southern California,” said Pac-12 Networks President Lydia Murphy-Stephans. “This is a great day for our fans living in Arizona and California who will now enjoy expanded access to premium Pac-12 content.”
Cox will program Pac-12 Network side-by-side with Pac-12 Regional Sports Networks (e.g. Pac-12 Arizona, Pac-12 Los Angeles) throughout the state of Arizona, and in Orange County and Palos Verdes in California. In Santa Barbara and San Diego, Cox will carry both networks on its Sports and Information tier in HD.
Cox subscribers will also now have access to all seven Pac-12 Networks via Pac-12 Now, the TV Everywhere service app that allows fans to watch Pac-12 Networks remotely on any device.
Cox plans to implement these changes by Aug. 2, 2016, well ahead of football season kickoff on Pac-12 Networks Thursday, Sept. 1, 2016. Pac-12 Network will feature 14 football games during the first three Saturdays of the season. See the full Pac-12 Networks schedule for the first three weeks here.
