LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The Arkansas Razorback Sports Network will offer a telecast of Arkansas’ Oct. 2 football game at Kentucky on a pay-per-view basis.
“We’re excited Kentucky is allowing us to go to Lexington and provide the game back home to all the Razorbacks who can’t make the trip,” said Mark Meadors, director of sales and operations for ARSN. “Pay-per-view is the only way to remain in compliance with Southeastern Conference regulations governing television broadcasts in each institution’s home state when games are not picked up by Jefferson Pilot, ESPN or CBS.”
As with the Arkansas-SMU game, ARSN’s Mike Nail will handle play-by-play. KATV’s Justin Acri will return to cover the Razorbacks’ sideline.
Kickoff is set for 1:30 p.m. ET (12:30 p.m. CT) at Commonwealth Stadium.
Residential cable customers will be charged $24.99 in advance and $29.99 the day of the game. Residential cable customers should contact their local cable company to find out if the event is available in their area.
Commercial cable customers should contact their local provider to inquire about their pricing structure and availability.
Residential and commercial C-band customers should call 1-800-TV STARS (887-8277) to inquire about ordering the telecast. Orders will be accepted starting Monday and customers will need to provide their unit identification number when ordering.
Dish Network customers can order the game through their set-top converter if their phone line is connected to the system. All channel and ordering information will be announced Monday. New Dish Network customers must be subscribed for at least 48 hours in advance to order the game. No phone orders will be taken for Dish Network.
Residential C-band and Dish Network customers will be charged $29.95 to order the game.
The telecast is not available via Direct TV or Primestar.
The game will mark Arkansas’ first-ever trip to Lexington and just the second time the Razorbacks and Wildcats have met on the football field. Arkansas defeated Kentucky 27-20 last season in Little Rock.
