Football: A primer on the Pac-12 Networks

I wanted to pass on this information to Pac-12 football fans who may be as confused as I am about the details related to the Pac-12 Networks.

This explanation comes courtesy of Kirk Reynolds, vice president for communications. Hope it makes things a bit more clear. 

There are three games in the noon window Saturday: Washington State vs. Eastern Washington, Cal vs. Southern Utah and Colorado vs. Sacramento State.

The Pac-12 Network will show the WSU game on the Washington and Oregon regional networks, the Colorado game will be on the Mountain regional and Cal will be on the national network and the three other regionals – Bay Area, Los Angeles and Arizona.

At 7:30 p.m., the Pac-12 will broadcast two more games — Arizona vs. Oklahoma State and Stanford vs. Duke.

The Stanford game will be on Pac-12 Bay Area, while the Arizona game goes to the national network and the five other regionals.

Comcast, Cox, Time Warner or Bright House subscribers will have access to all seven networks on connected devices through TV Everywhere services if they can’t get the game they want on their television. Comcast, which activated their Xfinity service for the Pac-12 today, will allow fans to access the seven networks through their computers.

They do not have iPad capabilities at this time. Cox, Time Warner and Bright House make the networks available on computers and iPads through Pac-12 Now.

Several other providers like Frontier Communications, Suddenlink and Bend Broadband will have their Pac-12 Now services available in the next couple of weeks.

Here’s how it works.  If you’re a Comcast subscriber, all seven Pac-12 Networks are available through Comcast’s XfinityTV website (you can find the full lineup here).  If you subscribe to Bright House, Cox, or Time Warner Cable, just visit video.pac-12.com and enter your user ID and password for your television provider or download the Pac-12 Now iPad app at the App Store.
