Big Ten/Pac-12 Reach Carriage Deals with Dish

Dish announced yesterday that it has reached deals to carry the Big Ten Network and the Pac-12 Network.

The Dish contract with the Big Ten is an extension to its current carriage agreement.

The Pac-12 agreement is a multi-year deal that makes Dish, for the time being, the lone satellite carrier of the network.  The new agreement also provides Dish with exclusive category sponsorship for Pac-12 athletic programs. The sponsorship includes stadium signage and logo rights with each of the member schools.
