This was covered in the GT last week. A lot of the details are yet to be announced ... the Network will premiere on August 15th.
Some snippets from Cliff's GT article ...
* "... Comcast Cable will be the main carrier in Oregon. Other providers such as DirecTV and Dish Network, have not reached agreements with the Pac-12 yet. ..."
* "... Coverage of OSU events on ROOT Sports will end. ..."
* " ... The Pac-12 Networks launches Aug. 15 with one national network and six regional — Pac-12 Oregon, Pac-12 Washington, Pac-12 Mountain, Pac-12 Southern California, Pac-12 Northern California and Pac-12 Arizona. ..."
* "... The Pac-12’s commitment to the Olympic sports fill out air time. At least 80 women’s basketball games will be shown live, compared to the 10 or so in recent years, Fenk said.
Each school will have 40-45 Olympic sports-specific shows produced each year. Soccer games and gymnastics meets will be broadcast. ..."
* " ... Some games will still stream live on the Internet through Beaver Nation Online since not all Olympic sports games will be on TV. Fenk expects those games to go through the Pac-12 website now. ..." (From the blog, I get this to mean ... BNO streamed games will go through the Pac-12 website.)
