Well Pac12 bball starts today and nothing from DirecTV. Just waiting for my contract to expire so I can jump. CSR says they are closer than they have been but I doubt that. #nottheleaderinsports

So them not having one sports channel makes them not the leader in sports? If that's the case then no MSO is the sports leader. But you know deep down you don't believe that and we all know DirecTV is the leader in sports hands down.

I used the hash tag just to stir up the coals on this dead thread. However, other providers have all the sports channels I want and DirecTV doesn't so they are not leading me anywhere but away. DirecTV clearly has more but I am a college sports guy that would watch Pac12 more than any other channel most days. Many friends I brought to DirecTV have moved on and it looks like I won't get what I want unless I leave after 13 years. Angry at Pac12 as well as I know it takes two.

Well, hopefully PAC-12 Network improves their product to meet their rate or they reduce their rate to match a product that has its prime events diverted to other networks.

Interview: Pac 12 Commissioner Larry Scott Chats About Directv

Nothing new here. Scott says the DirecTV offer is virtually the same as the other carriers; he claims that D* wants a different arrangement than what they have with the Big 10 & other RSNs; D* says they don't feel the pressure and haven't lost many subs;
Face it D* has no desire to give PAC 12 fans what they want and nothing is going to happen until late summer when football season rolls around and the complaints pick-up. Thanks to D*, only one semifinal and the Men's Basketball Conference Tournament final will be available. All other games from the tourney will be on the PAC-12 Net.

That's inaccurate. DIRECTV® will not give anyone Pac-12 at the rate the Scotts of the world want. A fan is a fan is a fan, and for the majority, DIRECTV® has shown they "care" about them.
"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.

True about this thread, too. I was surprised to see it back on the front page. I was hoping for some news. Nope. Same stuff, different day. I'll wait until August and we get close to the football season before I drop by this thread again.

I wouldn't expect the network before August/ September. If we don't see it by then expect it to be at least two years before they do. I suspect that will be the case here.

He gives us the story because he thinks we care about pac16 or by next year 24 teams basketball games. I am sorry but the PAC has very little to offer in basketball. DirecTV might here something if we can't see football games that are big but then I'll just wait and see.

Did you actually read the article?

The link I posted was from an article from Feb. 25th referring to a live chat interview that Scott had with the Seattle Times on Feb. 21st. The date on the caption you are talking about is from a photo taken of Scott in July 2012.

By the way, I see that you are in Acc/SEC country. Well the "lowly" PAC 12 could see as many as five teams in the tourney, while the ACC will get four in, and the SEC will be lucky to get three in. So please, do tell about how "little" the PAC 12 has to offer in basketball.

I live here but I grew up in saint Louis so I am big10 not sec. My other teams include baseball cardinals football 49ers hockey blues and I am a flip flopper in basketball. But my college teams are big 10 and some big 12. So don't just look at location and just make up your mind that way.
This also is the reason I have DirecTV is to watch all my teams. Mlbei nhlci and depending on the price nflst.

The ACC could easily get 6 and the SEC could get 4/5 if you think the P12 can get 5.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.
