    I am not currently subscribed to the multi-sports pak. Does anyone know when the SD free preview ends on channel 413? I currently live in Alaska. Also, the overflow channel 445 was not mapped on my guide. Is this channel on the 110 degree sat? This would explain a lot since I can not see that bird due to tree issues. Finally do you need to subscribe to the multi sport pak to view the games on the sport alt channels. Last weekend I tried to tune in to one of those games that wasn't blacked out and I got a message involving my smart card not being able to access that game. (Can't remember exactly what the message said.)

    The Big Ten Network and PAC-12 network are available with the Multi-sports package. The AT 120 + or above packages are required for the Multi-sports package.

    Your channels in Alaska are mapped mostly to the 5000 range channels. PAC-12 doesn't have a channel in this range at this time. Thanks.

    He asked what satellite they were on... he knows the channel numbers. James was telling him which satellite locations carried the channels.

    This isn't entirely true...

    Big Ten is available to anyone with AT120+ or above who is in the designated Big Ten DMAs... Multi-sport is only required for those of us outside the Big Ten markets if we want Big Ten Network.

    Similarly... PAC-12 will be available to anyone with AT120+ or above in the PAC-12 designated DMAs... and to everyone else with the purchase of Multi-Sport.

    BUT... for the first few weeks, Dish has PAC-12 in a free preview for everyone... so even IF he wouldn't get these channels later without multisport, he should get them now as part of the free preview.

    The channel numbers (5000 range) is not nearly as important as the satellite carrying the channel. As I understand it, the 5000 range is more of a convenience thing to have the Alaska/Hawaii channels grouped together... but they get lots of other channels not in the 5000 range.

    So does this mean we're going to have to buy the multi-sports Pack in order to get the Pac-12 channels?

    Only if you live outside the Pac 12 regions. Basically any state that doesn't have a Pac 12 team.

    Looks like the last uplink converted the channel to a real part-time HD feed as the EPG info now just says "PAC12HD" and has the description of "part-time HD feed for some games"...

    I really hope this is just while they are testing things... I hope they aren't making the main PAC-12 channel a part-time game-only HD channel. I don't see how PAC-12 would have agreed to that when Big Ten has a full time HD channel on Dish.

    FYI, now I see some games tomorrow in HD on the PAC-12HD feed... but only games... and, the last game of the day does NOT have an HD listing, which seems curious.

    It is on channel 5453 at 6:30pm PT. HD coverage on 5454 is listed at 7:30pm PT. There is also a replay at midnight PT on 413 (SD only).

    When is Dish Network going to have Pac 12 streaming available?

    http://video.pac-12.com/

    Lists several providers and ones coming soon, but Dish is not listed......does this mean Dish will not have streaming access?

    FYI...

    There was an update to the PAC-12 app (iphone/ipad) today... and the update said that there would no longer be required app updates to add new providers.

    IF you update to the new app, you now see a selection for "Dish (soon)" and if you click that, it displays a popup that says they expect Dish Network streaming to be enabled by 10/19/2012.

    So... "soon" now appears to have a date attached to it.
