Oh, don't worry, the SEC and Big Ten will be making more money than the Pac 12 when their contracts expire in the next ew years.
The P12N annoucnced their fall volleyball schedule. 90 games on P12N, that's a little bit more than last year....which is awesome for volleyball fans. Way more than you see the other conferences broadcast.
DirecTV wants to pay a lot less than everybody else is, like they did with the MTN - that's their choice. If fans don't want to switch providers to get the networks they want, that's their choice too.
If P12N accepts DTV's lowball offer, that might affect their contracts with the other providers and bankrupt the network. Who knows what is going on.
I know that I am switching to Time Warner if Uverse or DirecTV do not add it. If I switch to TWC, I will lose the Big Ten Network, but I'd rather have the pac 12 network anyway.
I don't want the P12N to go the way of the MTN- all sports other than football and men's basketball have way less games on TV since the mtn went bankrupt. If keeping P12N off DirecTV allows the network to survive- I'm for that.

I hope not, at least not more per school for sure. But the more they get the more they want to charge us.

And I don't know why you think DIRECTV is lowball ing them. Anything the pac12 is asking for is highball in the first apace to be honest. But still, if they offered to carry it a la cart or in the sports tier likely for their asking price, I don't consider it a low ball offer simply because it won't reach as many people, especially if those people likely don't want it anyway. Not if it raises everyone's rates far beyond what we paid for content last year.

No sports channels want to be pushed to a separate tier, but its going to happen at some point, and sometime soon. And I wouldn't bet on the Dodgers, sec, or any other sports channel getting on DIRECTV anytime soon.

Dodgers network like shorthorn network will never get on, Not because of the teams but being an dedicated channel for one team will not happen. Longhorn network will soon go away when the ESPN contract expires.

As for the SEC network guaranteed money in the bank first year. SEC is already negotiating with all major networks including Direct even though they won't start until August 2014 there will be a deal. I figure pac12 network will take a similar deal with less payout because lets face it the SEC rules ratings in college football and happens to be in the south the most populace area of the country.

The South is the most densely populated area of the US? What's the basis for this claim/statement?

Actually, he said populous and by that measure, and using the US Census Bureau regions, the South has the highest population....by a lot.  

 

However, the North East has the highest population density followed by California.

 

So, I understand his point.  There are a lot of eyes watching the SEC.

I would be shocked if the Dodgers RSN is not picked up on DirecTV. They will lose far more subs for that than the P12N. P12N is a bargain compared to the Dodgers alleged asking price, but Dodgers will most likely appear on DirecTV first.

You're dreaming in la la land again. Read my lips no single team will ever be picked up. Period..... Doesn't matter how many subs they may lose if the Dodger network were forced on me I would drop Directv in a second.

I don't think there is anyway to stream Pac 12 Network without being a subscriber to cable(that carries Pac 12) or Dish.  That is legally and not sure it is possible to even stream Pac 12 Network illegally.

wait, if dtv gets the Dodgers channel you are automatically going to dump DIRECTV? Why exactly?

I don't think it will come right away, if ever, but I also wouldn't be surprised if it did show up at some point. I'd love for it to be in a higher tier or a la cart, but I doubt that will happen.

And by the way, the Lakers channel was pretty close to a single team channel and it did get picked up. It does happen. And the Yankees network is pretty close to single team as well. We all know the dodger network will have more than just dodgers on it, eventually as well.
