NORMAN — FOX Sports Oklahoma announced Friday the participating program providers for the Oklahoma’s season-opening Aug. 31 game between Oklahoma against Louisiana-Monroe will be on pay-per-view. The suggested retail price is $39.95 for the game, which will be available in high-definition.

Ron Thulin, Dave Lapham and Chad McKee (sidelines) will call the game, which will kickoff at 6 p.m.

The game is being televised on pay-per-view because it wasn’t selected for over-the-air broadcast or cable television coverage. 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.

Outside of Oklahoma, viewers can purchase a live stream of the pay-per-view telecast on, OU’s premium digital website, for $44.95 to watch on their computer, mobile device or tablet.
