I recall they got the right to Epix but did not exercise it at the end of the Viacom dispute.


They only had it offered as an addition at a cost. They declined. That's what was reported. Saying they got the right to it makes it sound as if something changed. Epix has been available since it launched and DirecTV has never agreed to carry it. Epix started out as overpriced and then shot themselves in the foot with their Netflix deal which watered down their value to providers.

They have an position on it. It did change. They set a price. Directv has not to date exercised that option. That is all correct. If they want to put it on tomorrow they can. last year, they would have had to reach an agreement. It is the same as the plex channels.

Their position has not changed and there is no proof that it has. Note your source there. An agreement is still required.

Haha! They've gone from saying the offers were identical to fundamentally similar.

Pac-12 Network's statement:

… Despite your thousands of emails, tweets, calls and posts, DirecTV is tuning out its loyal customers and still refusing to reach a fair agreement.

While we cannot explain it, so far DirecTV, which has always claimed to be the "sports leader," is simply not interested in offering its customers the Pac-12 Networks. …


What a cynical statement! I have been critical of DirecTV over its lack of basic-cable in HD. And I believe Pac-12 Network is full of *s*.

More evidence that DirecTV runs the show right now. PAC-12 is getting a bit more desperate.
[Disclaimer] The definition of "soon" is based solely on DirecTV's interpretation of the word, and all similarities with dictionary definitions of the word "soon" are purely coincidental and should not be interpreted as a time frame that will come to pass within a reasonable amount of time.

I actually had to Google "Pac-12" to figure out what the fuss is. Shrug. On the other hand, ION HD will be nice to have, especially if they'll do another rerun of The Wonder Years.

New HD channels don't always start exactly at 6 a.m.

But, they're up now. :)

Since it costs 2.4¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 4.8¢ worth.  That 4.8¢ is my own and not the 4.8¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.

DIY-HD is one of the last national channels on my wish list. Now if we could get H2 and the rest of the Encore channels I'd be a happy camper. :D
