    5pm press conference in NYC ... got the deal done just in time for an announcement on the East Coast. Must be coincidence.

    Wilner seems to suggest Larry Scott spent a lot of time talking to the head of Fox Sports yesterday.

    I was joking. I'd be shocked if it were anyone other than a main-stream media group like fox, comcast or dtv.

    Comcast is based on Philadelphia, DirecTV in Southern California, Fox and Time Warner? Manhattan.

    saw that. Being in Manhattan is more about being in the center of the media universe. any connection to the location of the network partner is coincidence.

    Wilner

    (At risk of looking foolish) All signs point to TWC as Pac-12 Net partner, including ... Key player in Pac12 Net? David Rone, formerly of Evolution Media (Pac advisor on Fox/ESPN deal) became prez TWC Sports in May. Tight w Scott

    HAS to be Time Warner. If so, this is huge, as Time Warner own's Southern California. ANd P12 needed full carriage in Southern California

    Sweet. Time Warner owns Austin as well.

    Here is some additional info on the PAC network, Longhorn Network, and future expansion. This is from an interview an Austin writer did with Larry Scott today:

    In addition, Scott hinted with the network’s formation and the launching of the Longhorn Network next month, that Texas probably will never be joining the Pac-12 Conference.
    “I think you could certainly imply that, with the news that we’re going to announce tonight,” Scott said in a phone interview from Bristol, Conn. “The Longhorn Network would be certainly a huge impediment.”
    That was the case before Texas and four other Big 12 schools chose to remain where they were and not join what was the Pac-10 Conference, and with a Pac-12 Network, joining that league will apparently not be an option for the Longhorns down the road if the Big 12 dissolved.
    That said, Scott remains on the record as saying he expects further expansion and realignment down the road.
    “I do think there will be further consolidation,” Scott said. “It’s not something we are looking at now. We did our deal. We’re very happy with it. We’re not thinking or looking at expanding at the moment, but we are trying to create the strongest conference possible. I do feel there will be further expansion, and I want to be an attractive place to come.”
    If the Longhorn Network is given permission to televise high school football games, Scott said the new Pac-12 Network would do likewise.
    “We have an interest,” Scott said. “If the Longhorn Network is allowed to do it, we’ll do it from the get-go.”

    Six regional, one national network

    Partners are Time Warner, Comcast, Cox and Bright House ... no one gets an equity

    I see Rich Sandomir tweeting about this but the feed just shows an empty podium -- he must have gotten a press release?

    Just looked and Time Warner is HUGE in California and texas and the Northeast as well. Seems like the right choice (LA and Dallas)

    They'll carry it -- I would anticipate they will make the subscription fees the operators pay to get it low (at least at the beginning) in order to get the largest possible footprint.
