Finding the game on TV this week and a few other off-field notes

I thought I’d throw out a reminder that the next two UW games are each on the Pac-12 Networks. I’ve gotten a lot less e-mail about this than when UW’s opener against San Diego State was on the Pac-12 Networks, indicating that everyone has begun to figure it out.

The major complication now is that the Pac-12 Networks and DirecTV remain at loggerheads and do not have a distribution deal. So if you get DirecTV you will have to look elsewhere for the games this week and next as there is no indication an agreement is coming anytime soon.

So I thought I’d pass along again Jon Wilner’s compilation of sports bars and restaurants that carry the Pac-12 Networks that he published a few weeks ago.

— Also today, the Pac-12 announced that the Pac-12 Networks, the seven full-time native HD linear networks dedicated solely to the Pac-12 Conference, are now available to DISH customers on their iPads, Macs and PC’s through the Pac-12 Now TV Everywhere service. The press release continued to say that:

Starting immediately, DISH customers who receive the Pac-12 Networks as part of their subscription can watch all seven networks by authenticating their service on the free Pac-12 Now iPad app or on the Web at video.pac-12.com. In addition to viewing all seven networks, fans can switch between multiple live events and enjoy coverage not available on their regional television network.

Pac-12 Now also allows fan access to an unprecedented amount of video content produced by Pac-12 Networks and member universities, including highlights, feature stories, game recaps, and exclusive Pac-12 Now video content. Pac-12 Now also features an electronic programming guide and gives fans the ability to share what they watch with their social networks.

A linear carriage agreement between Pac-12 Networks and DISH was first announced in September, and with the availability of Pac-12 Now, DISH subscribers join millions of customers of other distributors who can log in to view Pac-12 Networks broadcast channels from anywhere as long as they have an internet connection.

DISH customers who receive the Pac-12 Networks as part of their subscription can authenticate their service by entering their DISH Online ID and Password in the Pac-12 Now app or at video.pac-12.com. DISH customers without an existing DISH Online ID can create one by visiting mydish.com/register.

Pac-12 Now is the latest and most significant step in Pac-12 Networks’ commitment to building out state-of-the-art technology infrastructure to serve its high-quality content across all platforms. The service will be available on iPhones, Androids and other smartphones in the coming weeks.

— Also, the 27th Annual Dawg Dash is this weekend.
