With the press of a button tonight at 6, the Pac-12 will launch a television network it hopes will revolutionize the way fans watch games and, eventually, the way the league makes money.

The Pac-12 Networks — one national station and six regionals, including Pac-12 Arizona — will help commissioner Larry Scott accomplish a long-time goal: to make every single football and men’s basketball game available live, without regional pre-emption, across the country.

In their first year, Pac-12 Networks will air 35 football games, 143 men’s basketball games and 850 games across all sports.

Two of the first three UA football games will be on the network.
