How to stream Pac-12 Network
FuboTV started as a streaming service geared toward sports fans, but it’s evolved into a broadly-appealing option with entertainment and news options alongside its robust sports choices. It starts at $54.99 a month, and depending on the package, you can access as many as 180+ FuboTV channels. Fubo will entertain you with Bravo, IFC, MTV, and VH1 at its most basic tier.
The Fubo channel list still includes plenty of sports, including the Fubo Sports Network, which has original programming mixing sports and humor. The ESPN suite of channels was added as part of an agreement that also brought ABC and the Disney Channel. Pretty much every sports channel you could think of is available through Fubo, including BeIN Sports, CBS Sports Network, and TUDN.
To get the flagship channel and all the regional networks, get FuboTV’s Sports Plus with NFL RedZone add-on package for $10.99 per month. It brings you nearly 30 sports channels to stream, including (as the name clearly indicates) NFL RedZone.
If you’re looking for a streamlined, cost-effective streaming package, check out Sling TV. It offers two basic cable packages, Sling Orange and Sling Blue, each of which costs $30 per month. There’s also the third option of getting Sling Orange + Blue for just $45 per month. You’ll get more Sling TV channels by choosing Sling Blue, with its 40 channels including sports favorites like FS1 and NBCSN and cable mainstays like Food Network and Discovery Channel. But Sling Orange brings must-haves Disney Channel and ESPN as part of its package.
The Sports Extras package is $15 per month, available with Orange + Blue. It gets you Pac-12 Networks as well as MLB Network, NBA TV, NHL Network, and more. If you have just Sling Blue or Sling Orange, the sports add-on for each, at $10 per month, will work as well.
|Orange + Blue||$45|
Vidgo offers a package for under $40 a month that pulls together more than 60 English-language channels into its National English Package. Its channels include ABC, Fox, the ESPN family of channels (including ESPN Deportes), NFL Network, and it’s one of the few streaming services that carries BeIN Sports. But it’s like Fubo in that, even though it started out for streaming sports, it carries a lot more now. There’s even a Social TV platform that allows you to chat with other Vidgo viewers about what you’re watching.
There’s also two Latino options featuring ESPN Deportes, Fox Deportes, and TyC sports at both levels.
Pac-12 Now app
The Pac-12 Now app, available for both iOS or Android, allows you to carry your team in your pocket. You’ll still need either a cable or live TV streaming subscription to access live features, but with the mobile app, you can watch on the go, check scores and highlights, and tune in to your preferred Pac-12 Networks channel.
When in doubt, you can always watch the Pac-12 Network at Pac-12.com/live. As with the Pac-12 Now app, you’ll need a cable or live TV streaming subscription to watch live games.
For more options, you can check out Pac-12 Network’s Channel Finder.
