Pac-12 Cable Network Targeted For Launch In 2012, According to SportsBusiness Journal

6

Interesting points being made here. *ESPN, FOX have shown the most interest, and the Pac-12 has an exclusive negotiation window through April 30, 2011; Comcast is interested too, and they'll soon control NBC. Three very good possibilities for primary TV distribution outside the potential cable network. *The programming schedule would be filled with over 2500 live events from the conference. It's expected all the Pac-12 football and basketball games not televised elsewhere would be picked up which is what everyone has wanted forever. *It would also contain more "premium content" than the BTN, meaning there could be more marquee high-profile matchups. *Schools would contribute all television and other digital rights to the network. *Industry executives aren't sure if the network will succeed like the Big Ten Network. The biggest impediment could be distribution; how many cable/satellite providers would be willing to include the channel in their digital subscription packages outside the West Coast (and most importantly in California?).

Will the final Pac-10 invitation go to Texas A&M, Utah or Kansas?

52

Final bit of expansion news for the week: Word is that if the Aggies continue to drag their feet or pine for that SEC bid, the conference will extend their hand to Kansas, with their long storied basketball program and generally better academic tradition. Who would you prefer to see join the conference? The Utes might not be out of the running either. (HT Block U!)
