Pac-12 attempting to spread word about its Networks

The Pac-12 announced today it is introducing a “Power of the PAC” Facebook app intended to help fans let their service providers know that they want the conference’s Networks, which are set to debut Aug. 15.

Here’s the link.

As a press release from the conference reads, the app “lets users send an e-mail to their service providers requesting Pac-12 Networks. Each time a user submits an e-mail from the Power of the PAC app they are entered for a chance to win a trip to the 2012 Pac-12 Championship Football Game on November 30th, 2012. Users can also request Pac-12 Networks via Twitter and the hashtag #IWantPac12Networks.”

As further explained in the release “the app is being hosted by the Pac-12 conference’s Facebook page and all of the Pac-12 school’s Facebook pages.”

The Pac-12 last week announced it had reached a deal with the National Cable Television Cooperative. And it earlier reached deals with Comcast, Time Warner, Cox Communications and Bright House.

However, it is still working to reach distribution agreements with other companies, notably DirecTV (though as Jon Wilner noted earlier this week, signs are positive in that regard) and Dish.
