The Pac-12 Networks today announced that Western Broadband and Orbitel Communications — which provide cable and internet in Sun Lakes, SunBird, Robson Ranch, SaddleBrooke,  SaddleBrooke Ranch and Maricopa — will carry the stations when they launch Aug. 15.

The providers will carry Pac-12 Network Arizona, which will carry three UA and Arizona State football games during the first three weeks of the football regular season.

“With football season and the fall sports schedule fast approaching, the Pac-12 Networks will be providing great content to our fans on a daily basis, and we are delighted to expand our reach to Western Broadband and Orbitel customers,” Gary Stevenson, president of Pac-12 Enterprises, said in a statement.

The Pac-12 Networks still do not have a distribution deal with Dish Network or Direct TV, among others.
