And that's the dilemma. There are many folks like yourself where it does mean something (real or just on principle) and there are others like Sandra that just say add it to the bill. DTV has tried to answer both by offering it to those that want it only, but Pac 12 has said no. That way Sandra could get it, Dawg and others could pass.
Satelliteracer I will defer to your industry knowledge, but isn't this the crux of the situation....and situations past? I mean, with my Total Choice package I get many many channels that I'll never watch...but I subsidize anyway because they're part of the package. I realize individually they may not be as expensive as the Pac 12 Networks, but collectively they do add up....and I pay for them anyway because I have a package.
