Discussion in 'DIRECTV Programming' started by sticketfan, May 18, 2012.
I read only if you have a provider that carries the Pac 12 Network and you subscribe to the channel.
New article on the network plus a little tidbit the new TWC Lakers net:
The price they are asking might be more than Directv is willing to pay. Looks alot like a CSN Philly price tag to me.
Well, you can forget about DirecTV getting the Pac 12 Network now.
80 cents per subscriber? Say what?
You can book it that this deal will not go through. At least not anytime soon.
That price is some baby-back bull chit.
Damn, the Pac 12 is playing some hardball as if they are the Los Angeles Dodgers.
99% of the networks today on cable/satellite television cost less than 80 cents per subscriber.
Not even A&E costs that much. Animal Planet? Nope. C-Span? Not a fat chance. Bloomberg TV? Of course not.
But Pac-12? 80 cents? For real?
Pac 12 is out of their mind.
No wonder why a deal is not inked yet, and the network launches in a few short hours time.
Get busy switching, or get busy missing your Pac 12 programming.
And that's DirecTV.
There's good TV, there's better TV, and then there's Pac12-less TV.
Get InDirecTV, because we don't come direct. At least not with Pac programming.
I don't think the 80 cents will be a problem, but the 4 dollars for the time warner sports channel.
I have no doubt that is what I think they are trying to do.
If it's 80 cents for all seven channels (including the regional channels), then that sounds much better. I was assuming it was 80 cents for just the National network (plus whatever additional for the regional channels).
80 cents for one channel (Pac 12 national network) sounds steep.
But 80 cents for all 7 channels sounds like a steal.
Pac 12 network (national channel) to be on channel 626 on DirecTV? ....
That is what Stevenson said I believe pc anywhere should be good to go at go live
That speculation came from wilners blog comments
There are so many numbers out their being thrown around, you cant really be sure of anything. I had read one paper that said twc was going to ask for 2.35 for its two channels so who really knows....
And the other thing we don't know about the .80 is if it's different in different parts of the country, and other such things of that nature.
We will never know the exact details, ever...
Sounds like maybe they want the national channel for everyone, and the regionals in the sorts pack. Not an outrageous idea IMHO. That would actually make most people happy i do believe. but I think the question is which blinks first, or which one makes another offer that will work for both.
I wonder how long before DIRECTV creates two sports packs, one for $10 for your local sports channels, and any other national channels not in choice, (NBC sports without needing choice extra for example) and then their other sports pack that includes all the rest of the regional networks as well for another $10.
What is the consensus.....do I hold and HOPE Directv comes to its senses and gets the channel shortly, OR do I pull up stakes and go back to Comcast now? Over the next few days will it get any better if I stick w/Directv?
Yep, I'll bail if DTV does not show the first games on Thursday, Sept. 30th. DTV says they are the sports leader? Prove it!
I know more and more people subscribing to Netflix, I can see why, they can bypass this bull$h**!
I would just suspend your DirecTV account and subscribe to Comcast for now. Then when DirecTV reaches a deal you can cancel Comcast and turn your DirecTV service back on.
go back to when they pulled VS off and there was talk of a NEW sports pack.
Now look at the choice extra classic VS the new choice extra.
Then look at choice ultimate that used to be choice extra + encore and movie channel.
Now they should have a choice ultimate (sports) with some of the sports pack channels in place of encore and movie channel.
Argh what the heck, 2 service providers in Washington gets p12-national with HD, but Comcast doesn't?
• Comcast: regional, Ch. 430 (standard definition) and Ch. 628 (high definition); national, Ch. 431.
• Wave Broadband: regional, Ch. 123 (standard) and Ch. 723 (HD); national, Ch. 124 (standard) and Ch. 724 (HD).
• Fios: regional, Ch. 80 (standard) and Ch. 580 (HD); national, Ch. 78 (standard) and Ch. 578 (HD).
Sounds like a reasonable explanation. PAC-12 wants the regional channel carried by a basic type package, which is what all the cable providers have done as well. That would guarantee people get their PAC-12 sports for the same price as they did before.
DirecTV can make a nice chunk of change if people need to subscribe to the sports pack to get the regional networks. It would also make it easier for DirecTV as they don't have to do zip code checks for 1 of the regional networks to be in basic in certain regions with the rest in sports pack.
If the tweet above is correct, and they think they will have it resolved "by week 1", that will also mean that the test feed won't go up till the first week of football, which means you WILL miss the first weekend of football guaranteed, with possibility it will all be up and running in week 2.
So, if week 1 of football is important to you, you probably should have already scheduled install of another service.
I'm still pretty sure PAC-12 will be carried on DirecTV, but you will have to make the choice whether the first week, maybe even the first two weeks of football are important enough to you to switch providers.
Ball, your court, etc.
Or to find a bar or a friend for that first weekend.
