The Pac-12 Network is getting ready to start putting together their own network. The television enterprises are expected to be revolutionary for a college conference, as the conference owns the rights to the entire network and will also be distributed to most of the country. The Pac-12 Network plans to showcase 850 sporting events and get launched by August 2012.
The Pac-12 has chosen San Francisco as the place where they'll put their studios this year, and they're all set to break ground. The ceremony will take place next week.
