Lie? Just because they haven't signed an agreement with the PAC 12 network? Lol!
They do have more sports IN TOTAL compared to other providers. Not carrying the PAC 12 network doesn't make that any less true.
For the record, DirecTV waged a fairly misleading campaign last fall. The message they were trying to put out was that you aren't missing anything by not having the P12N. So they would indicate a really low number of football games scheduled for the P12N, compared to total number of P12 games. For example, the website would say: of the 144 total PAC-12 games during the season, only 4 are currently scheduled for the P12N. Why was this misleading? In order to get 144 games they double counted any game involving 2 PAC-12 teams (12 teams times 12 games equals 144... right?), but in reality there were only 90 physical games. Of course they didn't use the same logic when counting games scheduled on PAC-12 Net. But the low number of games scheduled reflected the fact that most P12N games weren't known until the 6/12 day prior scheduling window occurred. So while there might be 30 more games to occur on the P12N, only a small number were actually scheduled at that point, so DirecTV would use the number currently schedule. If you called them on the phone last year, they had similar talking points. It should be noted, that after about 3 weeks, they did eventually stop using the 144 game number, as I think someone convinced them that was manipulating the numbers too far.
The reality was it depended on which team you routed for. Oregon and USC only had 3 games each on the P12N. Of course one of Oregon's games was against #16 Oregon State in the Civil War, and the USC vs. ASU game was significant for the South Division race and USC/Cal was played before it was clear just how bad Cal was. There were several times where the best game on at that time of day was on the P12N, like the Oklahoma State at Arizona game, and a few games that didn't look that great going into the game, but wound up being good games, like Stanford's 20-17 win over a team ranked #21 at the end of the year, San Jose St. Now if you were a Cal fan, 7 of their 12 games were played on the PAC-12 Network, so while the season was a huge disappointment, you would have missed the majority of the games (maybe not such a bad thing). The average was 4.5 out of 12 regular season games per school that was only on the P12N. And then when you look at Arizona vs UCLA in basketball being played on P12N last year, the number of top 10 matchups (UO, OSU, UCLA) in baseball that were on the P12N, and shoot even #2 Florida vs #7 Utah in gymnastics (watched it with my daughters) was a phenomenal meet that came down to the very last score (Utah won)... there was a lot of good stuff on the network.
My point is this, DirercTV waged a deceptive campaign to make their customers believe they wouldn't miss any meaningful games. And while there are plenty of games vs. cupcakes that won't move the needle, there are still enough games in both quality and quantity that every school's fanbase will be disappointed at some point during the season at what game(s) they will miss out on if they are still with DirecTV.
