    Thank you for confirming you will not post about PAC12 any more until there is a deal. :D

    After all....

    I've always wondered who are those guys who leave at the end of the first quarter of a football game when their team is behind 0-24.

    Now I know.

    Rio Rico,...
    You can never count our schools out of contention in Football or Basketball. Especially after the beat down Arizona suffered last night.

    In basketball, after a few off years they all of a sudden suck? Every conference has down years even the ESPN-beloved ACC.

    If they're so horrible at sports why keep posting here? Leave it for us fans.

    There's a good group of us that would love this network at a reasonable cost. Until then we will keep our fingers crossed for positive, productive negotiations and will continue to do so until the Pac-12 networks come on line.

    Lots of myopia by a few individuals who have such a bias against the PAC-12, no matter the facts, they'll just keep burying it. And, whatever DirecTV says or does, is the goespel for them.
    A one loss team (Alabama) played for the BCS tittle this past January, so USC still has a chance, along with Oregon, to play for a tittle. And, for some of us its not just about wininng a tittle, but winning games week-in and week-out.
    The PAC-12 has two of the top three basketball recruiting classes with UCLA rated #2 & Arizona #3 by Rivals.com.
    There will be more than 150 basketball games carried by the PAC-12 Network, so there will many more live events shown beginning in November. It may be hard for some of you to swallow, but some of us actually like college basketball more than college football.
    SO, I for one will keep hammering on DirecTV to make a deal, because my research tells me they are the ones keeping the net off its system.

    Seems Directv's point of view of the pac 12 gets better and better. This was their response to someone asking about the pac 12 channel.

    They posted on Facebook the other day that Pac 12 was playing hardball. Yea, hardball by offering the SAME deal that their competitors were offered! Imagine that.

    Talked to family and this is my decision related to Pac12 Networks..

    I am offended by the way Directv has handled the Pac12 networks. I am personally affected from some jack crack who argued with me at a Directv booth and threw a wadded piece of paper at my 6 year old daughter yelling he's been watching Pac12 NETWORK for 2 years.. Yes, we went back and forth about network and that this is new, etc.... He wouldn't listen to reason.

    OK!! Yes I realize this is not what directv is about. A letter to Mike White and all I got was a short email sent from his IPAD saying he would look into it and thanks for bringing this to his attention.

    1. If Dish gets AMC back before Directv gets Pac12, I'm GONE..
    2. If Pac12 Comes to Directv, I'll stay until after the NFL season, then switch.

    I am not convinced any longer that Directv has the best options.. I'm quite impressed with Dish and the Hopper that it might be time for a change.. If I'm wrong, well at least I tried it and can say I know from personal experience..

    I wouldn't expect amc back anytime soon with Dish network considering the history those two companies have with each other. Just like I would expect the pac 12 before this year is out either.

    With the court cases resuming today and all the things I'm reading, it sounds like Dish and AMC will probably settle real soon. My guess is within a month.

    Yes, but Dish will still be using HD-Lite as well. HD picture quality is a priority in my household.

    They don't offer a single 1080i channel in its full resolution and use a compression scheme that is inferior to that of DirecTV.

    Just curious, but why would you leave if D* gets Pac 12, isn't that what you want?

    hmm, I guess I need to do more investigating.. I too like good quality HD.. I'll get to the bottom of this and see if it makes a difference in my house..

    There's a difference and it's well documented here and other video sites. Is Dish HD bad? No, not at all. It's just slightly softer and 1080i channels aren't full resolution.
