Pac-12 Conference to Create Seven TV Channels

Rick Shaw

The Pacific-12 Conference, which has made no secret of its desire to create a network to showcase its newly expanded league, announced Wednesday that it would create six regional channels and a national one.

The regional networks will be carried in Pac-12 markets on expanded basic cable; the national network in Pac-12 states will be shown on digital basic, and the national network will be seen on digital sports tiers, which require extra fees, in non-Pac 12 states and markets. So far, the conference has signed the cable operators Time Warner Cable, Comcast, Cox and BrightHouse to carry the networks, and expects to add satellite and telephone companies.
