It seems to me that if the PAC 12 wants DirecTV to carry all 7 channels or nothing, then the PAC 12 should be paying DirecTV, and not the other way around. Yes, the one national plus six regional network model was set in stone by the PAC 12, but until they can fill all seven channels with programming that is not duplicated, why should DirecTV pay to carry more than the national channel. The PAC 12 designed their product to be regional based, but DirecTV is not a regional carrier. As far as the lack of testing, all we know for certain is that it is not in testing in HD. Sixto does not check the SD tests.
