Perhaps I'm missing something here, because as my avatar suggest I only follow USC (and only the football team at that). But internet streaming aside, how much more can adding only one national Pac 12 channel (which may be only in SD) contribute beyond what the main networks ESPN, ABC, and Fox provide?
To me to moan that "Dish now has the Pac 12 network" is an overreaction and is more in name than anything else without carrying any of the regional channels.
I think its more fitting to say that Dish today "barely" has the "Pac 12 network," which granted is technically more than DIRECTV has at the moment. But I certainly wouldn't say its anything to boast about with only one channel of it.
19 pac12 conference games that you can't watch anywhere else, as well As over 100+ basketball games
And please what is this barely have p12 network business?
That is the deal that dtv wanted. They only wanted one channel, so yes dish can boast it
