This is a day that should long be in remembering for the conference. The Pac-12 Network is here! If you have the right cable and satellite provider, you should be able to start seeing the channel on your TV around 6 PM PT.
This is also a day of remembrance for the old times.
- Remember the days when the conference had to house themselves on channels renowned for their bass fishing and rodeo coverage? Those were the days.
- Tom Hansen's famous commandment: "Thou shalt prioritize women's track and field at the same level as a Washington-Arizona double dip, and thus shalt ensure neither gets shown anywhere."
- Washington State fans that didn't live in Pullman (and even some who did) will mourn the lack of free time they now must fill in with Mike Leach plunderings.
- Online streams of all sorts, usually via illegal satellites up near Ursa Major and located around Juarez.
Obviously nothing is perfect. If your carrier is a teleco you probably have nothing solved, and of course those pesky satellite carriers won't fix anything until they're forced to fix something. The online coverage could be a bit spotty to begin with.
Regardless. You'll be a lot better off today than you were yesterday, and the vision of Larry Scott and the Pac-12 will make everyone in this conference quite secure in the years to come.
Over the course of the day, we'll reveal some of the pertinent details about today's broadcast schedule. You might be actually interested in some of what there is to say.
