The Pac-12 Network launches Wednesday. And while the conference remains in negotiations with some carries (such as DirecTV) it has already worked out a deal with Comcast, which is a significant presence in the state of Washington.
As for where you can find it on Comcast, the network said today:
Comcast will be carrying the channel as part of our Digital Starter package (In other words, if you currently get ESPN, you will have access to the Washington Pac-12 Network) on channel 430 in Standard Definition and channel 428 in High Definition. The national version of the channel will be available in Standard Definition on channel 431. It will be part of the Sports and Entertainment tier of channels, which includes 17 additional channels such as Big Ten Network, CBS Sports Network, FCS Atlantic, FCS Central and FCS Pacific. The Sports and Entertainment tier is available for an additional $7.95 a month.”
And here is a full release from Comcast on the launch of the Pac-12 Network:
Providing more live sports, more national championships, and more digital innovations to connect Xfinity customers and Pac-12 fans to their favorite teams everywhere
Comcast Xfinity TV announced today that it is offering another opportunity for customers to watch even more live sports. As of August 15, Xfinity TV customers can access new Pac-12 Networks in these Pac-12 states: Arizona; California; Oregon; Washington; Colorado; and Utah.
“Xfinity TV is committed to offering the best content to our customers across multiple platforms and the Pac-12 is a great example of this,” said Lars Lofas, Vice President of Product Management for Comcast’s West Division. “We’re thrilled to provide our customers with more options for accessing a wide variety of sports and compelling programs 24-hours a day. This is a college sports fan’s dream.”
Xfinity TV customers who live within the Pac-12 geographical footprint will receive a network tailored to their regions as well as nationally televised live events. Customers who reside outside the Pac-12 region will need to subscribe to the Sports Entertainment Package for access. In addition, Xfinity TV customers may watch Pac-12 Network content online (live streaming of games) inside and outside of their homes on any digital device, including computers, smartphones and tablets.
The Networks are dedicated solely to the Pac-12 and will include more than 30 football games, more than 120 men’s basketball games and at least five women’s basketball games annually. In addition, they will showcase hundreds of events, offer classic games, studio shows, feature stories and highlights from activities across 12 university campuses.
Customers should check their local listings for specific information on Pac-12 Network programs.
In addition to PAC 12, Xfinity TV customers have access to many tools and features such as the Xfinity TV sports remote, which offers them the ability to watch even more of the most live sports. Please visit: www.mostlivesports.com for information.
