Every provider that has the Pac-12 network has the same deal: everyone in-market, sport's tier elsewhere. What would make you believe it would be different with other providers? So yes, I believe him. I'd say its all about perspective. It seems..... Scott wants the same deal with DIRECTV as big ten. They have the same package placement as big ten on dish. (That dtv has with big ten) DIRECTV wants the same deal as dish. ( In sports pack out of market, same as dishes deal with pac12). You can't have them both. Scott looks at the deal being the same because he wants the same Concept as what he agreed to with dish. Not the exact same type of package placement. Massive (and by massive i mean millions of dollars) difference between those two things.
