Latest posting from SJ Merc's Jon Wilner, update about TWC & PAC-12 Net's negotiations with D*. Calls D*'s position hypocritical when it comes to the PAC-12 Net.

He's a bad writer and an even worse reporter. That rate is dependent upon location. Either he didn't know what has been reported multiple times or chose to omit it. He's a homer and it shows.

This may sound harsh, but DirecTV employees should have no business discussing negotiations that involve them. Regardless of which side you sit--whether it's the PAC-12 Network or TWC's Laker Channel--in my eyes it's extremely unprofessional and very telling of their intentions, which can be compromising.

Your boss should put on a leash when it comes to discussing this, whether you openly state you're an employee and don't represent or do so in an undercover manner.

Personally, I hope DirecTV does not carry these channels. Reap what you sow.


Excuse me? Who are you talking about and more importantly why exactly are you saying you hope they don't pick up the new Lakers channel? How would that reap what you sow, especially for someone like me, who ain't reaping anything? I want the channel, as of this moment I have zero ways to get it.

Look at his location he's in cow town.

I'm suspecting it's a backhanded comment because he's more than likely a Kings fans and the Lakers in the past have broken their hearts plenty of times :lol:

If he wants to go that route.

I'll say I hope Sacramento lose the Kings and they move to Seattle after this season.

:lol:

What an idiot. Would he compare the price of a Kia to the price of a Rolls Royce. His argument is based on every channel having the same value.

So the option in LA is to visit a Bar? No thanks, i don't drink and i refuse to partake in criminal activities by people who abuse the system and then get away with it. I value MY life and will not subject myself to drunken azzholes either in the bar or outside where i may be a victim of a horrendous accident. Drunks never get hurt, but the victims often get scarred for life by these azzholes.

This forum has degenerated into garbage. Half of the people that post here aren't consumers, that's for sure.

Listen, DirecTV has made their bed, let them sleep in it. If it bothers you that much or it will potentially affect financially, learn your lesson and move on.

If it's that important to you, switch or double up.

Listen, the NFL isn't dumb, come contract renewals, those greedy bastards WILL get triple what DirecTV currently pays spread out amongst many. Who would turn down that down?

NFL Sunday Ticket


The NFL wants it to be exclusive to a single provider. DirecTV will have the chance to extend their deal before anyone else can even make an offer. They paid $4 billion last time. It's their most heavily marketed product/feature and probably their most lucrative as well. It isn't going anywhere.

It will only be with one provider. The reasons why have been explained numerous times.

As with many others, he can do neither even if he wanted;

He lives in an area outside TWC's service area, served by Cox or Charter cable.

Trying to insult me by geographical location is kind of pathetic and desperate.

So, you are angry at Directv but you know everything about them and we don't know you. Is this the CEO of Dish Network?

It's been exclusive to DirecTV for about 17-18 years now. It isn't going anywhere.

I am angry at DirecTV for having to double up because everyone is greedy, but I've observed and learned a lot.

Come 2014 we'll see who's right. Personally I hope DirecTV pays out the whazoo and we'll all learn soon enough.
