The Pac-12 Networks are unlikely to add coverage on AT&T U-Verse and the Dish Network by the second week of the college football season, according to Jon Wilner (via Pacific Takes.)
The networks are less than a month old and are still working out some kinks, though are leaving a large market without coverage as of now as they are yet to make a deal with DirecTV either. Here's Pacific Takes' Avinash Kunnath with more on this situation:
It makes sense that if no deal has been by Friday, there will probably be no Pac-12 Network this weekend. There just won't be enough time to put everything in place for both sides this week. Even if the Pac-12 and DISH are closing in on a deal of some sort, you have to figure that if a deal is made, it won't come in time for this week's set of games and is being set up for future weeks.
If you'd like to see the Pac-12 Networks expedite the process with the Dish Network, you can make your voice heard here.
