UPDATED: Aug 27, 2014 - Dish and DirecTV WILL carry the game on PPV
FOX Sports Oklahoma has announced an initial list of participating cable and satellite providers that will carry the pay-per-view broadcast of Oklahoma’s season opener vs. Louisiana Tech on Saturday, Aug. 30.
The game is being televised on a pay-per-view basis because it wasn't selected for over-the-air broadcast or cable television coverage. Pay-per-view allows fans the option to watch a game they otherwise wouldn’t be able to see. It will be available on a dedicated pay-per-view channel on participating Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas program providers, and nationwide via participating satellite and Telco distributors.
Ron Thulin, Dave Lapham and Chad McKee (sidelines) will call the game, with coverage beginning at 5 p.m. CT with the Sooner Sports Gameday pregame show. Following the contest, Sooner Sports Overtime will have complete postgame analysis, along with live press conferences featuring OU coaches and players.
