It’s time for the PAC-12 Network to grow up and offer it’s own streaming option. Being tied to any cable or streaming service these days is beyond silly. You would think a ‘Power 5’ conference that has Silicon Valley in its back yard would have come up with something better. Guess we’re not ready to compete with the big boys and girls after all…..
Steven T Mock says
It appears not. It’s insane and I thought the new commish was going to fix that.
Directv must have it in for west coast sports, it took them 5 years to get the Dodgers on 690. They have other networks like Longhorn, ACC, etc. What do they have against the western US?
John Galt says
Apparently, I won’t be watching the PAC 12 network on my HULU.
Steve Callihan says
The six Pac-12 Regional Networks are included with Sling Orange or Blue ($25) + Sports Extra ($10), Or Sling Orange and Blue ($25) + Sports Extra ($10).
The Pac-12 National Network is not included, but any live event on the National network will be available on at least one of the Regional networks.
Water Polo Mom says
When will any of these channels get a per game or per day stream going? I can’t fathom paying for subscription TV to get 1 day of 1 channel for a water polo game. Off to find a restaurant that will tune in a channel for my group.
Just wasted 2 hours trying to find a PAC -12 game online. All roads lead you back to tv carrier. Tried to upgrade Xfinity for $10 more per month, but…sorry! Not on a Saturday!! Pathetic
I have sling tv and watch the pac 12 channels on it. Josh you must not know how to use the app or you did not add the pac 12 package.
Patty Olsen says
I hate my Direct TV. I bought the PAC 12, the Sports pkg to was Hawks & Cougs. It turned to crap when ATT took over Direct TV from Verizon.
Steven T Mock says
Yep, it’s why I not on it anymore.
Sling does not offer Pac 12 network. I have sling blue and orange with the sports extra… No Pac 12
