I'm sure you're all aware of the Pac-12 Network's debut in a few weeks. It's definitely a huge step for the conference, but also could prove to be a limited one because Direct TV and other service providers have yet to add the channel to their lineup.
Hopefully by the time August 15th rolls around, that will have changed. Of course, the biggest thing fans can do is push for the network to their providers. You can do this by contacting your provider and to help you with that, the Pac-12 has actually created a Facebook app that e-mails providers directly. Every person who submits their e-mail from that app can be entered for a chance to win a trip to the 2012 Pac-12 Championship Game this November. That's a pretty big incentive. But an even bigger one is to get the fan voice out there and hopefully, when the network launches this August, you won't be left in the dark.
