Just got this email from the Dish Network:

DISH is pleased to announce we have entered a multi-year agreement to carry Pac-12 Network on the DISH lineup.
We know you value your Pac-12 games, and we’re happy you can enjoy these games on channel 413!
Pac-12 Network is available on Channel 413 in America’s Top 120+ packages and above, where regionally available, and in the Multi-Sport Pack nationally.All customers can enjoy Pac-12 Network for a limited time in Free Preview. Just tune to channel 413 and enjoy! This makes DISH the only satellite provider to carry the sports programming. Currently our competitors DIRECTV, FiOS and U-Verse have decided not to carry the programming. Thank you for your patience as we worked to reach an agreement.Sincerely, DISH 


DISH and the Pac-12 Networks have reached a deal to broadcast the conference's football offerings on the satellite provider, starting today.
Games -- including the No. 4 Oregon Ducks taking on Fresno State at 3:30 p.m. in Autzen Stadium -- will be broadcast today on channels 413, 445 and 446. The multi-year agreement is the first between the Pac-12 and a satellite provider.
Customers of DirecTV remain without the channels. Comcast previously has a deal with the Pac-12, broadcasting on standard definition channels 420 and 421 and high definition channel 720 in the Portland area.
“DISH is delighted to offer our customers more than 800 sporting events available on Pac-12 Networks each year, while giving them a great value,” said Dave Shull, DISH senior vice president of programming, in a statement. “This is a great partnership with the Pac-12 that goes beyond the TV screen to the campuses in the form of an exclusive sponsorship to support the programs and the students.”
DISH is offering Pac-12 Networks as a free preview for a limited time to all DISH customers. Games are available starting this weekend, including the following:
- Sacramento State at Colorado, 12:00 p.m. PT, Ch. 445
- Eastern Washington at Washington State, 12:00 p.m. PT, Ch. 446
- Southern Utah at California, 12:00 p.m. PT, Ch. 413
- Fresno State at No. 4 Oregon, 3:30 p.m. PT, Ch. 413
- No. 18 Oklahoma State at Arizona, 7:30 p.m. PT, Ch. 413
- Duke at No. 25 Stanford, 7:30 p.m. PT, Ch. 445
“DISH wanted to deliver Pac-12 Networks to its customers and our fans will benefit,” said Gary Stevenson, President of Pac-12 Enterprises, in a statement. “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.”
DISH customers will have login access to stream all Pac-12 Networks content and additional sporting events through Pac-12 Now in the coming weeks.
Pac-12 Networks is available to all DISH customers as a free preview for a limited time. It is included in America’s Top 120+ package and above for customers in Pac-12 territory (which includes the six states with Pac-12 schools) and available nationwide in the Multi-Sport Pack for $9 per month.
Now unless Charter agrees to carry the Pac 12 Networks  there will be customers all over Southern Oregon making the switch ..... more to come........
