Blog: Where to watch the OSU-Arizona game
The good news for Oklahoma State fans arrived shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday.
Because of a last-minute agreement with the Pac-12, Dish Network will carry the OSU-Arizona game live, according to a news release issued by the conference.
Dish will likely be the only option for in-state viewers, as Cox in Oklahoma failed to reach a deal with the Pac-12 and no other local provider has the broadcast rights.
The multi-year agreement goes into effect this weekend, and current Dish customers will get the network for free for a limited time. After the preview period ends, it will be available nationwide in the Multi-Sport Pack for $9 a month.
“Dish wanted to deliver Pac-12 Networks to its customers and our fans will benefit,” said Gary Stevenson, president of Pac-12 Enterprises. “Dish’s line-up and ability to offer Pac-12 fans nationwide access to an unprecedented number of live quality sporting events make this a huge day for Dish customers and Pac-12 fans.”
OSU's game at Arizona kicks off at 9:30 p.m. Saturday and will be broadcast on channel 413.
Here is the schedule for this rest of this weekend's Pac-12 games on Dish:
Sacramento State at Colorado, 2 p.m., channel 445
Eastern Washington at Washington State, 2 p.m., channel 446
Southern Utah at California, 2 p.m., channel 413
Fresno State at No. 4 Oregon, 5:30 p.m., channel 413
Duke at No. 25 Stanford, 9:30 p.m., channel 445
