Some of Directv is national, sure, but since of the programming is definitely regional.
No satellite is national.
Sure they carry local channels, but the company isn't regional like most cable companies.
Take my local Cable company, Blue ridge cable, serves northeastern and central Pa. But has over 5 different channel lineups.
But Directv could certainly make Pac 12 regional , My guess Pac 12 wants it national, and Directv doesn't want to pay those fees, when I'm sure most of the nation doesn't care about Pac 12.
I listed local channels not being beamed to other areas as an example but we could also look at the sports networks. Games from other areas are blacked out.
