When the Pac-12 nets come out of the gate next Wed, it won’t be like other network launches. Not only are there 7 networks taking off, but the programmer has a TV Everywhere model like we’ve never seen before. An MVPD has the rights to offer TV Everywhere live streaming from all 7 networks to customers who are part of a package that includes any Pac-12 network.  It’s something interesting to watch as we see where MVPDs place the nets and which ones they carry. Negotiations for carriage continue.

Also in the August 7 issue of CableFAX Daily:

Turner has acquired online sports property Bleacher Report, which has more than 10mln monthly unique visitors. Bleacherreport.com and its mobile offerings will be part of the Turner Sports portfolio.

AMC is launching online video contest, "Hey DISH, Where’s My AMC?," reminding us that the DBS op’s customers have been without the net for more than a month now.

The "Dance Moms" spinoffs continue with Lifetime picking up "Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition," in which 12 dancers compete for a $100K cash price and Joffrey Ballet School Young Dancer Program scholarship.
