DISH Network has reached an agreement to carry the Pac-12 Network just in time for the second weekend of the college football season.
DISH’s multiyear agreement will place the Pac-12 Networks on the distributor’s America’s Top 120+ and packages above that level of service for customers within the conference’s six-state footprint. Pac-12 Networks will be available nationwide as part of DISH’s Multi-Sport Pack that sells for $9 per month.
DISH will only broadcast the Pac-12 Network National feed on its lineup, but they will provide overflow channels for multiple football games when there are conflicts.
DISH Network will offer the Pac-12 Network as a free preview for a limited time to all of its subscribers. Games are available starting today, including:
Sacramento State at Colorado at noon on channel 445;
Eastern Washington at Washington State at noon on channel 446;
Southern Utah at California at noon on Ch. 413;
Fresno State at No. 4 Oregon, 3:30 p.m. on channel 413;
No. 18 Oklahoma State at Arizona, 7:30 p.m. on channel 413;
and Duke at No. 25 Stanford, 7:30 p.m. on channel 445.
In the Coachella Valley, DISH Network joins Time Warner Cable as the only distributors of the Pac-12 Network.
The new agreement also provides DISH with exclusive category sponsorship for Pac-12 athletic programs. The sponsorship includes stadium signage and logo rights with each of the member schools.
