Pac-12 Network Compromise? Football/Basketball On Cable TV, Olympic Sports On Internet?

John Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News reports. "Pac-12 exploring numerous options for network, including multiple platforms: fball and bball on cable TV, Oly sports on internet TV." "League doesn't want Pac-12 Network fball/bball games only shown on internet TV, hoping to strike balance w/ traditional broadcast outlets."

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

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?).
