Pac-12 Network Has Yet To Reach Agreements With DirecTV Or Dish Network

LET'S GET IT STARTED: In Portland, Kerry Eggers wrote content through the first week and a half of the Pac-12 Network "has been underwhelming, unless previews of the conference’s field hockey and water polo seasons are what you had in mind." However, "the good stuff is coming." Thursday kicks off "35 football games that are part of 850 live events to be telecast during the network's inaugural year." Stevenson said, “The quality of our games are terrific. The first weekend we have California opening its new stadium versus Nevada." Stevenson added, "In the first four weeks, we have every (Pac-12) team on the air." Eggers wrote the Pac-12 Network "doesn't settle for the crumbs of what is left after ESPN and Fox feast on other games, either" (PORTLAND TRIBUNE, 8/24).
