    Why would you think Comcast is going to give more when games are live than what they do regularly?

    The first paragraph demonstrates how closely "in market" is being defined, however. That is interesting. BTN considers anyone in the same state as a Big Ten university "in market" so all of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and Nebraska are "in market."

    Latest rumor is...the Pac-12 National Network will be available in the regular DirecTV Sports Pack, and then there would be an option to add the remaining Pac-12 regional networks in a separate plan that would cost around $14.99 a month to access the six regional networks.

    That would be great...something for everyone. Let's hope the "rumor" becomes the actual thing...

    The latest rumor makes sense, with one caveat: what would be the package for the regional channels in the local areas?

    I like this too, but I think Pac 12 Networks want to give access via Streaming internet.. What then?

    Not a chance Pac 12 will sign that deal. That would be bad for all of us and raise the prices all over the place. Soon Comcast would follow with increased prices, etc. Before long no one would subscribe to Pac 12.

    If Directv won't play then Pac 12 will move on - and if they move on - tons of subs will go as well.

    Minimum is in the Pac 12 footprint fans get basic access as any RSN. Outside of that is all negotiable, but don't expect a $14.99/mo charge. No one will sign on for that.

    Let's assume for a minute this is how it shakes out. That leaves some key questions:

    1) If you live in the DMA of one of the regionals, will it be included in Choice and above (like cable, and D* in all other instances)?

    2) Will you be able to subscribe to the six-channel bundle w/o subscribing to the Sports Pack?

    3) Will you be able to subscribe to individual regionals, rather than the bundle?

    4) At what level would you have to subscribe to have access to TV Everywhere?

    Agreed. I mean if they do the 14.99 month charge for regionals, it could be a mtn. type mistake.

    Currently, the PAC-12 Network is streamed for Bright House, Cox and Time Warner. When you log on with you provider ID your subscription access is validated. If you do not have access to specific content via your provider subscription you cannot access that content online.

    Good Source within the conference. However remember it's the latest rumor. Haven't heard any specifics yet on in-market RSNs.

    Look for an announcement tomorrow. If it does not come tomorrow you can definately kiss Thursdays openers goodbye.

    We all need to call and overwhelm Directv tomorrow PM. By mid-morning Pacific time until lunchtime Pacific time is when announcements will come, if they come at all.

    Enough with DirecTV is going to lose a lot of subscribers if they don't carry these channels. They aren't going to lose that many. Will they lose some? Of course. But nothing that will make a dent in their total subs. A niche channel is going to make or break DirecTV at all. I'm a huge Nebraska fan and the Big Ten Conference is well more popular than the PAC-12 and if DirecTV stopped carrying BTN then DirecTV wouldn't lose that many subscribers. Stop being so delusional and such a PAC-12 homer. Please, just switch to Comcast already. Make it easier on yourself. End of story.

    Fog, I get that, my question was in relation to how DIRECTV was maybe going to charge $14.99, but maybe offer the national feed as part of your subscription. That didn't answer my question.

    Your a tool.. Pac12 has won more conference championships than any other in history. Pac12 didn't just sign for $30 million per each school for each year if they didn't have something to sell. Big 10, while popular and certainly a road map for the Pac 12, isn't much better than than Pac12.. Give me a break. I think the real hold up is how Larry Scott and the Pac12 network gets in with Directv and of course the cable customers. You'll see, this will be epic when, not if, it gets done!

    Look, I want DirecTV to carry the network. But let's face it, they aren't going to lose a ton of subscribers if they don't carry the networks. And they were able to get that huge TV contract because of the time we are in. Networks are spending a fortune to carry any live sports. This is what really scares me. Just wait until the SEC renegotiates their TV contract and when the Big Ten's contract comes up in a couple of years. Their TV contracts are going to blow the huge contract the PAC-12 received out of the water and that scares me. That means we all have to pay higher monthly fees. I'm not bashing on the PAC-12 at all. Oh, and if you are going to call someone a tool then you might want to learn how to spell and when to use a word correctly. Otherwise, you are the one looking like a tool. It's you're and not your as you stated in the first word of your paragraph.

    Ok.. funny.. That does bug me too.. I should have said you're.. You got me.. I called you a tool because you rambled on how the Big 10 was more popular and Webtraveler should just move on etc.. Get over yourself.. Pac12 is of course popular and Webtraveler like many of us on this page are very excited to get this thing going.. Be more supportive or shut the F up. And by the way, I did spell correctly! I used the wrong grammar, but the spelling was right.. Who's the tool now?
