Pac-12 builds studio
Pac-12 Enterprises broke ground on the Pac-12 Studios headquarters in San Francisco on Tuesday.
The Pac-12 Networks, along with the Pac-12 Digital Network and Pac-12 Properties will operate out of the new facilities. Construction is scheduled for completion this summer.
The string of seven networks are scheduled to launch in August and to air more than 850 events annually, allotting more air time to womenâs and Olympic sports. The Pac-12 network will be comprised of seven smaller networks: one for each of the six regions with two conference schools and one all-encompassing Pac-12 network.
Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Cox Communications and Bright House Networks plan on carrying the new networks, the first time a college conference has launched a network on multiple platforms.
A new website portal, part of the Pac-12 Digital Network, will live stream events, making broadcasts accessible via smart phones.
âThis represents another groundbreaking moment for a conference that is steeped in tradition and history,â Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said. âThere may be concrete at our feet, but the foundation for the Pac-12 Studios is being built on the success and excellence of our programs and our dynamic student-athletes.â
