Pac 12 channel coming to Time Warner

The new Pac 12 Network sports channel is coming to Time Warner cable customers on Aug. 15, but Cablevision and Verizon FiOS subscribers may have to wait a bit longer.
Gary Stevenson, the president of Pac-12 Enterprises, said the national network has agreements with Time Warner, Cox, Comcast and Brighthouse, and the likelihood is customers should be able to watch the channel on a digital sports tier.
Cablevision, which services areas such as Slate Hill, Monroe and Highland, and Verizon FiOS have been in talks with Pac 12 Enterprises officials for carriage but no deals have been struck as of yet.
“We’ve been in contact with every affiliate and I would characterize our conversations as healthy and productive,” Stevenson said. “What usually carries the day in those conversations is great content. We feel very confident our content is compelling to consumers. When that happens, we find a way to make an agreement. We are optimistic and we feel good about our conversations, but I can’t answer those questions (about the likelihood of being picked up by Cablevision and Verizon FiOS).”
The Pac 12 national channel is scheduled to air 35 football games, 140 men’s basketball games and a host of other athletic contests from the conference, which includes USC, UCLA, California, Stanford, Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon, Oregon State, Washington, Washington State, Utah and Colorado.
Attempts to speak to officials from Time Warner, Cablevision and Verizon FiOS were unsuccessful.
