    Twitter.
    I was reading it on twitter, where stuff is linked.
    It was a couple of hours ago when I read it.

    Let me go back and do some research and some searching in Google as well.
    I'm not saying it's true or is a definite thing, but there seems to be rumors and some buzz out there. I just read it a couple hours ago, so it could be fresh news. Something about how they've worked out a deal behind the scenes and could be announced to the public this week. Who knows at this point. Probably isn't true, but there seemed to be other people backing it up, so who knows. -shrugs shoulders

    Looks like it was just a rumor, but they are apparently in talks with the network.

    Ok, nevermind then.
    It looks like ESPN is claiming these rumors aren't true.
    I must have read the rumors before ESPN came out and canned them.
    This is all I can find from Google right now.
    I'll go back and try to find the twitter posts as well, but I'd say at this point we can disregard those posts on twitter, because ESPN is squashing these rumors. Unless of course, they're not ready to announce a deal just yet, but yeah whatever, it's only Longhorn.

    Here is what I could find from Google ....

    Directv should propose LHN games as part of HD Gameplan and Fulll Court. Put coaches shows on Audience.

    Directv should give us a live stream of talks between them and the PAC 12 network.

    I wanted that for Viacom cause that was hit drama. This is pretty much paint drying.

    The Utah/Northern Colorado on Thursday is showing in the Directv guide on KMYU (Chan 12 SLC DMA).

    I thought that this game is only available on PAC-12 net

    I just saw that also – seems rather odd…. It has pretty nasty picture quality but it beats nothing! Maybe I’ll reschedule my Comcast install because the next few games are on ESPN and ESPN2.

    I really don’t understand how they can broadcast what’s supposed to be on the Pac12 Network. You’d think that would really piss off Comcast!?

    Tweeted Bill Riley (Utah radio play-by-play) he knew nothing of it. I'm thinking guide error.

    As is, the Big Ten Network rakes in an estimated 88 cents per cable/satellite subscriber in its eight-state footprint (Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin) and six cents a subscriber elsewhere, according to research firm SNL Kagan. Penetrate a new state, New Jersey and its estimated 2.6 million cable households, for instance, and watch the money flow (that’s $2.3 million for the calculatorly impaired).

    That's closer to what I had thought.

    Will Mike White stick to his previous statement?

    DirecTV CEO Mike White on the Pac-12 Networks: "We're not going to have 7 channels [1 national, 6 regional], I can assure you of that."

    Yep - tvguide.com says Family Feud at 5:00 and 5:30 then Utah State at Southern Utah at 6:00. That makes much more sense....

    Comcast it is then....

    Which episode of Family Feud?
    I hope it's a re-run of episode #84,157.
    That is one of the best episodes of Family Feud ever (that particular episode originally aired in September of 2003).

    I hope they show an encore of it soon.
    It's been a little while.

    Also, if DirecTV only offers the Pac-12 National Network, that means DirecTV won't have this channel in HD. Right now, the Pac-12 National Network originally airs in "standard definition" only. Any cable company (the carriers that have Pac-12 now) only have it in standard definition. The Pac-12 network has a section online where you can ask them a question on their support site, and you don't even have to have a subscription account to TV Everywhere online to ask them a question. You can use any e-mail address to sign up to ask them a question. I sent in a request ticket online, and they got back to me. According to their words, the Pac-12 national network isn't even offered in HD, at least not yet. Now whether or not you're in market, or out of market, a specific regional channel may be broadcast in HD, as it may sound. The national network is just a summary of their best events, and as of right now, it's not available or broadcast in HD. So if DirecTV only gets the national network for now, it will launch in standard definition only, and who knows, it may be a year or more before the Pac 12 chooses the national network to be broadcast in HD (if at all for that channel).

    Bull. Cable companies offer it in HD right now. TWC here in the Los Angeles area carries the regional network and the national network, both in HD.

    Whoever gave you THAT information doesn't know anything and cannot be trusted to give any reliable information.
