The headline is great, and the reality likely will be great as well; but unfortunately, Pac-12 Plus does not include any Pac-12 football games.

This morning the Pac-12 announced that Twitter will be its premier streaming partner for Pac-12 Plus, a broadband network of live events produced by the conference’s 12 universities, with at least 150 games over the 2016-2017 academic year live streamed to fans on Twitter.

“The final roster of school-produced Olympic events shown on Pac-12 Plus will be determined as the season approaches, but will include Olympic sports such as soccer, volleyball, gymnastics, baseball, ice hockey, swimming & diving, softball, track & field, wrestling, lacrosse, tennis, and water polo.”

While this deal doesn’t appear to include any live football games, this is a solid step forward for streamers and fans of Twitter…and being able to catch live action wherever you may be. This, my friends, is a good thing.

One last thought to ponder, conferences already have “third tier” rights sold off in most cases; but those aren’t always streamed live. Hopefully the Twitter folks are working to change that…soon.
