Pac 12 Networks scheduled for August launch

The Pac 12 announced an early schedule of games that will appear on its network beginning in August.   As expected, the first three weeks will give subscribers a west coast bakery tour, with no meat on the platter, but plenty of cupcakes to satisfy your sweet tooth.

The better matchups of the early weeks went to the bigger spenders. While the Pac 12 Networks deliver Northern Colorado-Utah, Nicholls State-Oregon State, and Northern Arizona-Arizona State in the first week, Fox and ESPN will bring you Hawaii vs USC, Washington State vs BYU, and Toledo vs Arizona.

USC won’t make an appearance on the new Network until week four, when the Trojans face the Bears in the L.A. Coliseum.  As mentioned earlier, the Southern California opener will be carried by Fox, with the following week’s game against Syracuse picked up by ABC.  The Men of Troy then return to Fox coverage in the third week for the meeting with Stanford.

As of today, 5 of the 12 scheduled games for USC will appear outside of the Pac 12 Networks, with future broadcasts still awaiting announcement.  The Network will provide live look-ins, which would accommodate fans and alumni outside of the ABC/ESPN regional coverage area, by allowing a glimpse of what their Trojans are doing on the field.

The Pac 12 will launch seven networks in all, with six providing regional coverage, along with one national platform, but there’s still a question of whether your provider will carry them.  Negotiations continue with some of the major players, which includes DirecTV and Verizon Fios. And as of today, neither is slated to deliver the networks to your home.
