Huge news, sports fans! From almost literally out of nowhere, the Seven Network has revealed they are bringing one of, if not the, largest American college sports networks to Australian eyes for free. And it’s streaming right now, as we speak.
Via Seven’s on demand service 7Plus, College Sport broadcaster the Pac-12 Network is now available as a live channel in Australia.
The Pac-12 conference incorporates some of America’s largest sports-forward schools, including USC, Stanford, Oregon, UCLA, and Washington.
The network broadcasts the full gamut of college sports, but puts a large emphasis on football, men’s and women’s basketball, and baseball. This includes a swathe of live games and inter-conference championship games and tournament play, which includes the Pac-12 Basketball tournaments which are vital to school’s chances of advancing to the NCAA March Madness brackets.
In addition to the Pac-12 network, 7Plus also added The Outdoor Channel as a fully fledged live streaming service. That network carries a raft of programming including Gold Fever, Alaska’s Ultimate Bush Pilots, Duck Dynasty, and – oh hell yes – the parade of absolute batshit insanity known as Ted Nugent’s Spirit of the Wild.
Seven’s Director of Content and Scheduling Brook Hall extolled the virtues of the new channels in a statement earlier today.
The addition of Pac-12 and The Outdoor Channel demonstrate our commitment to adding more premium live and on-demand content to 7plus, giving our viewers more engaging new content to discover.
Both channels are, we cannot stress this enough, streaming live and free in Australia right now.
You can get at them both via the Live TV tab on the 7Plus website.
