    Zero chance of that. There is no way DIRECTV is going to sign any contract that says they can't sign any contract with another channel that they would want to.

    If the PAC 12 really needs DirecTV, then we would already have a deal done.

    Look's like ESPN forgot about the PAC-12 Networks, also... :)

    This is from the ESPN NCAA Football scores page. It indicates that you can watch a replay of the game on ESPN3 or WatchESPN...(you can't). Ooooops!!!

    Maybe you're new to this new fangled thing called internet forums, but each post is pretty much our opinion and how this works. Each time you post, it's YOUR opinion. :rolleyes:

    One of the reasons I like this thread is the variety of opinions expressed. None of us really know what's happening in the negotiations but it's fun to discuss what we think might be happening.

    Sometimes I'm sure my idea is right till I read someone else's opinion and realize there are things I didnt think about.

    I'm in the same boat and I'm in Texas. No way I'm giving up DirecTV but I want my Pac-12.

    I've been trying to think of the cheapest way to get it. I haven't actually set it up yet (Arizona is on ESPNU this week) but here's my plan:

    1) subscribe to the cheapest Time Warner package. This could be Lifeline (mostly just locals, not sure of cost) or their "Basic TV" for $25. Then add the Sports Pass for $7.

    2) don't do a cable tv install, so no costs for a settop box or DVR. (I already have Time Warner internet, so the wires are already in place)

    3) All seven Pac-12 channels should then be available online.

    I can either watch on my iPad, iPhone or computer. Or, if I want it on the big screen, I can stream from my iPad or Macbook Air to the big screen via Apple TV and the AirPlay feature.

    Lifeline is never advertised by cablecos but they have to offer it. I think the cost is usually around $10-$12 a month. I'm guessing I can add the Sports Pass to it but I'm not certain.

    My final cost would be around $20 to $32 a month, plus tax. $20 a month is definitely acceptable. The difficulty may come in trying to explain to Time Warner that I want to pay for cable tv but I don't want it installed. :)

    Your comments were part of the reason the Pac12 wanted their own network. Too many of their games were put into the late time slots where voters (top 25 & post season awards) were asleep. The hope is by clearing more late afternoon games the audience will be greater. Outside of USC the PAC doesn't get a lot of publicity. If you look at Oregon's overall numbers the last 10 years they are near the top of CFB. Cal has a WR who could be a Heisman hopeful a lot of people have never heard of in Kennean Allen. Hopefully this gets resolved soon!

    Seems like a good alternative.. You'd think in the day of getting HBO go and all that, we could watch Pac12 networks without the hassle. Real Bummer..

    This post is in response to the person that said the picture quality was horrible. I saw the Stanford game highlights on Sportscenter earlier and the picture looked really good to me. Must be your cable provider's issue with the picture quality being so bad.

    Lifeline may be part of internet on it's own or you can get a deal that makes internet + cable cost the same as internet on it's own.
