BERKELEY - Due to the lack of a broadcast agreement between FOX and Comcast, CSN Bay Area and CSN California are not scheduled to televise Pac-12 FSN games this season, meaning men's basketball fans will need to look elsewhere to catch conference action.
In past years, FSN games have been shown on CSN Bay Area and CSN California in Northern California. Pac-12 associate commissioner Duane Lindberg said the conference has been discussing the issue for several months with FOX, but a resolution has not been reached.
Choices for fans now include either FOX College Sports Pacific for cable subscribers or an out-of-market regional sports network (such as FOX Sports Arizona or Fox Sports West) for those with satellite. Either service may require a subscription to a sports pack.

FOX Sports Arizona - DirecTV 686, DISH 5415
Cal has several games set to be aired on FSN this season, including Thursday's Pac-12 opener at UCLA that tips off at 8 p.m. Other games on FSN are:
Saturday, Jan. 5 at USC
The Bears' remaining regular-season contests will be aired on ESPN2, ESPNU or the Pac-12 Networks.
Barbacoa will have 2-for-1 drink specials during the game, while the Republic will feature the same Cal gameday menu as during the football season.
On Saturday, fans are invited to go to Henry's for the official Cal watch party for the Bears' game against USC that tips off at 8 p.m. Discounted tickets to the Pac-12 home opener vs. Washington on Jan. 9 will be offered to those in attendance.
