The Pac 12 (yeah, it takes some getting used to) has announced that they have created networks to televise games in the conference.
The new venture is actually the Pac-12 Networks, plural. There will be a national channel along with six regional offerings: Washington, Oregon, Northern California, Southern California, Arizona and Mountain.
What does this mean for Ducks football?
Once the channels launch in August 2012, they will broadcast about 850 sporting events a year — 350 nationally and 500 regionally. Subscribers will also be able to watch games on mobile devices.
Every football and men’s basketball game will be televised nationally. The conference already had a 12-year TV contract worth about $3 billion with Fox and ESPN, which will air many of the most high-profile games.
Every Oregon game will be televised meaning big revenue, national awareness of the team and just plain old great football in the comforts of your living room (or smartphone).
Can’t wait for the 2012 season. We will never have to miss another Oregon Ducks football game.
