With four games on the Pac-12 Network, there is predictable overlap this week. Two games will be broadcast in similar time slots, so there will be one game broadcast regionally while the other gets the national channel and the majority of the regional channels.
Thanks to the Pac-12 viewer's guide for this weekend, we have a clearer idea of how to what watch on which carrier.
Saturday TV schedule
All times Pacific
12 PM: Oregon vs. Colorado, Pac-12 Network (National)
12 PM: Arizona State vs. UCLA, F/X (no online coverage)
12:30 PM: Arizona vs. USC, ABC or ESPN2 (available online at watchESPN via select carriers)
3:15 PM: Stanford vs. Washington State, Pac-12 Network (National)
6:45 PM: Utah vs. Cal, Pac-12 Network (Mountain & Bay Area)
7:15 PM: Washington vs. Oregon State, Pac-12 Network (National)
Coverage on the Pac-12 Network is available online if you have a carrier that provides Pac-12 Everywhere services.
Both DirecTV and the Pac-12 Network remain at an impasse, and there's no end in sight to the current disputes.
Dish is now carrying Pac-12 TV Everywhere, which means you can watch it in any form you like (TV, online, mobile). Only took over a month since the original deal! Not bad Dish.

All the above providers should be set up with your regional and national feeds along with your Pac-12 Anywhere services for either the Internet, or on your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch. Here are the details for watching online:
If you subscribe to Bright House, Cox, or Time Warner Cable [or any of the providers just recently added], just visit video.pac-12.com and enter your user ID and password for your television provider or download the Pac-12 Now iPad app at the App Store.
Additionally, there will be overflow feeds available from certain Pac-12 Network carriers.
Cox West will carry Cal-Utah on channel 3 in Orange County and Palos Verdes, channel 4 in San Diego and channel 8 in Santa Barbara. Suddenlink is permanently adding Pac-12 Bay Area in standard definition on channel 533 as part of its digital sports and information tier in Arizona.
Comcast still refuses to distribute the Pac-12 Network in certain out-of-region markets like Washington D.C. and Chicago.
For those who have a Comcast subscription to the Pac-12 Network, if you're in-market you get the regional TV channel in HD and a national channel in SD only. If you're out-of-market and do get the Pac-12 Network, you're stuck with the national channel only (in SD). The good news if you subscribe to the Pac-12 Network, you should have access to the current online feeds for all seven channels.
Here are the links to each channel, although you only really need the national channel for the broadcast.

Comcast still does not have TV Everywhere in place over two months after debuting with the rest of the original partners. Much of the original video programming on the Pac-12 site remains totally inaccessible to customers along with access via your mobile device.
