Something stinky is going on here in SoCal by the way: Time Warner Cable sales people or phone operators, whoever gets on the phone when a potential customer calls for information on becoming a subscriber, has been telling people that DirecTV will NOT carry PAC12 (nor TWC Sportsnet for that matter) and the only way to see your teams will be to switch to their cable. This has caused one of my colleagues to actually pull the trigger last week and switch after he was told by someone from TWC that the above was the case. This is pure slander and lies of course, TWC can't know about negotiations between DirecTV and PAC12..... but they are dirty tricks nonetheless to try and reel in some customers, now that the season is approaching and there is nothing but silence.... Technically speaking, they probably worded in such a way that they can't be called out for straight lying to customers. All they would have to do - and I have received one of these not too long ago - is pull up an email from DirecTV that says something like "Thank you for being a loyal customer. DirecTV has no plans to carry this channel at this time, but we will keep you informed when something changes", or more or less similar language.
