We've been hearing about the Pac-12 Networks for more than a year now, and it finally arrives today. Programming begins at 6PM Pacific time, and the first live event will air on Friday evening when the reigning national champion Stanford women's soccer team will open its title defense against Santa Clara.
You probably already know the problem. Here at GMC Headquarters, we subscribe to DirecTV, so I don't know if I'll get to watch the Mighty Card. Stanford's August 31st home opener is set to air on the Pac-12 Networks, which means they won't appear on my television unless the network and the satellite company come to an agreement in the next two weeks.
If you're in a similar predicament, you can do more than just cross your fingers. The Pac-12 Networks have created a Facebook App called Power of the Pac. All you need to do is enter your zip code and provider, and the app will let you know where you stand. If the Network is available for you, get your popcorn ready and enjoy the season. If not, the app will let you send a quick email to your cable or satellite provider to nudge them in the right direction.
Do this now.
