Pac-12 Networks confident, even without DirecTV
For fans who root for Pac-12 teams but watch their television via DirecTV, it’s always a good news, bad news scenario when talking Pac-12 Networks.
The good news, as the Networks’ new president Lydia Murphy-Stephans proudly notes, is that their first year, by their own standards, has been a rousing success. Launched in August, the Pac-12 Networks broadcast 550 live events in addition to more than 200 hours of original programming. In its second year, they plan to carry 750 live events.
So, that’s the good news. The bad news, if you’re a DirecTV subscriber: you still probably won’t be able to watch any of it.
Murphy-Stephans, who was promoted from her position as executive vice president and general manager when then-president Gary Stevenson resigned in April, called it “a disappointment” that negotiations between the Pac-12 Networks and DirecTV haven’t progressed.
