I suspect there's little else to discuss about the Dish/PAC 12 deal but I'll leave this open for a while. Mean while if you want discuss DIRECTV and PAC 12, don't do it here.


Should we open a separate topic about DirecTV/PAC12 negotiations, or should that go to the HD Anticipation topic?
[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 am the Stig.

From personal experience I can tell you that a parents favorite school is the one that provides the largest scholarship ....


Sounds like you are talking cars and stuff because no one can offer more than 100% legally.

Anyway, I disagree.

One thing I've learned since the Big Ten Network came about is that they don't even broadcast all of their Big Ten football or basketball games. In fact, since BTN's arrival more games are on ESPN and ABC than they ever were at least here. What's the point of having a dedicated channel and it's overflows to a certain conference when you give the games to other networks? Oh that's right. Money.
Point of my story is, I would personally expect more PAC12 games to be on channels you can receive (ABC, CBS, ESPN etc..) outside of P12N in the future even if DirecTV gets the channels or not.

BTN is part of the whole fabric of the Big Ten broadcasts. There are actually fewer games on other venues than there were before BTN. And a large amount of the games on BTN were not on at all prior to BTN or were regional only (and on things like ESPN GamePlan).

However, BTN does show games in every available slot, so they are utilizing the channel fully.

Why would they show all of them themselves? That would be dumb.

As for more PAC 12 games on ESPN, etc., down the road. Don't bet on it. The PAC 12 is geographically isolated from most of the country, particularly in terms of time zones. A Big Ten game can fit into the noon, 3:30 and 7pm ET slots for football. Giving lots of choices. PAC 12 would be 3:30, 7pm and 10pm. Making it less advantageous to the heavily populated midwest and east. Just by time zone alone, the PAC 12 is at a disadvantage.

To be clear, there is only one HD anticipation thread allowed. Otherwise we'd have too many threads to track. We've tried it and it doesn't work. There is no reason why this channel should get special treatment and have it's own thread. Further, there's no reason that a civil discussion of PAC 12 on DIRECTV can't take place in other thread.

This thread is about the Dish Network deal with PAC 12 and if nobody has anything to say about that the I'll close it. But, this will not turn into it's own HD channel coming to DIRECTV thread.

If there is some sports related discussion then start a new thread in the Sports forum.

Since it costs 1.66¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 3.32¢ worth.  That 3.32¢ is my own and not the 3.32¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.

I'm not sure how the big 10 handles what games are ESPN etc. the Pac 12 split the games up evenly with Fox and ESPN/ABC. They have a draft to see who gets what games. So, one provider wouldn't get all the good games. 1/3 Fox, 1/3 ESPN and 1/3 Pac 12 Network. There will always be some good games shown on the Pac 12 Network.

Wow.

I guess I was too subtle.

For all of those who questioned moderation in public, you got your last free pass with the deletion of your posts. Please remember that questioning moderation in public is against forum rules and future instances will result in infractions or bans as appropriate.

I am closing this thread. I had hoped that someone with an interest in college football would start a new one in the sports programming forum, but since no one did, I've done it for you.

Anyone who chooses to be rude or publicly question moderation will find themselves quickly banned from the new thread.

For the rest of you, feel free to discuss Pac-12 as much as you want. The point was that you were going incredibly off topic and being rude, not that you couldn't discuss Pac-12. I'm sorry some of you didn't get that.
