The launch of the Pac-12 Networks is just minutes away. This is a momentous step for the conference. In honor of the launch, the Pac-12 has unveiled an extensive redesign of their website, including a brand new name.
The website once known as Pac-12.Org, is now available at Pac-12.Com.
The main difference you'll notice now, is how the video now takes center stage. The site is fully integrated with the Pac-12 Networks digital portal, including links to view the streaming networks and featured videos getting top billing.
The new site also has a very intuitive schedule feature. The feature allows you to view games scheduled for each sport and see what channel they'll be shown on. If the game is being broadcast on a Pac-12 Network, you are able to click on a link and view the live video automatically.
To celebrate and publicize the launch, Kirk Reynolds, Vice President of Communications at Pac-12 Enterprises, sent us an email with a link to an exclusive interview with Mike Leach. That video, along with some impressive facts about the upcoming networks, is available below the jump.
We’re proud to report that Pac-12.com is live!
