Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott is doing things different with the Pac-12 network and he is looking at every angle on how to broadcast his leagues games. The league is still doing research on what the Pac-12 Network will become and the options that were recently reported were for the league to start a new channel all together, partner with a network or go online only possibly partnering with Apple or Google. Now it is being reported by Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News who sent out two tweets about the latest plan for the Pac-12 Network:
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
This makes the most sense to broadcast the revenue sports on television and then give an alternate outlet for the Olympic sports. To make the Pac-12 a premiere league they need to have their money sports on television, and now with the expected online distribution platform for the league they can now shine a light on the Olympic sports that the league takes so seriously.
