Pac-12 Networks To Launch Int'l Streaming Service On YouTube
Pac-12 Networks today announced that it will distribute its sports programming to int'l audiences through a new YouTube paid channel scheduled to launch in late August. The outlet will become the first live streaming "24x7" subscription sports channel on YouTube. The new channel at launch will distribute the Pac-12 Networks feed as well as VOD content to 27 countries, expanding to additional countries over time (Pac-12 Networks).
Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott a year ago said that he expected the conference "to play regular season games in China within the next few years" and that he "hoped the league's cable network would someday be available there" (THE DAILY).
