Pac-12 Network Reaches Deal With DISH Network, To Carry Saturday Games

The Pac-12 Network has reached a deal with DISH Network, and subscribers will begin getting the network in time for Saturday's college football schedule.

"Now Pac-12 Networks is available through more than 40 television providers, including four of the top five largest distributors in the United States," the network released in a statement.

That one missing distributor is DirecTV, which is the elephant in the room, but getting DISH Network on board is a major step in the right direction for the Pac-12 Network.

The network will be available on channel 413 on DISH Network, and Saturday's television schedule features six games. The highlights are the No. 4 Oregon Ducks hosting the Fresno State Bulldogs, and the Arizona Wildcats hosting the No. 18 Oklahoma State Cowboys.

The UCLA Bruins will play their first game on the Pac-12 Network on Sept. 15, hosting the Houston Cougars at the Rose Bowl. The USC Trojans make their debut on the network in two weeks, with a Sept. 22 home game against the Cal Bears.
