NEW YORK (AP) — The Pac-12 will launch national and regional conference television networks next year.

Commissioner Larry Scott announced Wednesday at an East Coast football media day in Manhattan that the Pac-12 had partnered with cable companies Comcast, Cox, Time Warner and Bright House. There will be a national network along with six regional channels: Washington, Oregon, Northern California, Southern California, Arizona and Mountain.

Once the networks launch in August 2012, they will broadcast about 850 sporting events a year — 350 nationally and 500 regionally. Subscribers will also be able to watch games on mobile devices.

Every football and men’s basketball game will be televised nationally. The conference already had a 12-year television contract worth about $3 billion with Fox and ESPN, which will air many of the most high-profile games.
