    Complaining and getting a deal is probably the best way to put pressure on them. If enough leave or get credits because of it they will eventually add.

    I don't want to sound like a broken record, but I just wish the sports industry would allow all providers access to their games and allow people to purchase them in a package deal. Or at least allow for internet access streaming for a fee.

    But I know its all about money for these networks.

    I don't know.......but something needs to change. :(

    I agree something does need to change. To fix this problem and similar ones like it you must remove greed from the mix.

    Greed cuts both ways. If you can't live without this programming, you're going to suffer whatever pricing and distribution restrictions your supplier imposes.

    People complain endlessly about blackouts, and missing RSNs, etc, etc, but in the end they tolerate all the stupid rules because they want this stuff so badly. I've complained about Directv services I've found lacking, but in the end, I still consider them the best supplier of the news and entertainment I want.

    Sometimes you just have to suck it up and live with it.

    I agree, but actually in this case it goes three ways. Pac-12, Directv, and the consumer.

    Based on the video of it that I'm viewing online. It isn't the clearest picture I have ever seen.

    I want to thank Larry Scott for getting me NFL sunday ticket. Now I wish he could get to work and get the PAC-12 network on DirecTv nationally. :confused:

    I just got off the phone with another CSR (DirecTV Customer Service, not the Retention line)

    "Things were looking good the other night as news hit our call center that this deal was about to be done. Then we hear yesterday and today that we're supposed to tell customers now that this isn't happening, and it might not happen at all in the foreseeable future. So we're just as puzzled about it as you guys calling in are"

    This was basically her quote (almost as verbatim as I can remember it).
    And if you really think about it. This basically falls in line with Wilner's tweets.
    Just a couple of days ago, he was above 50% sure still that they would have a deal by tonight, for tonight's football action. Something happened yesterday. Something caused optimism to blow up in smoke, and it caused the Pac-12 to react with a vengeance and basically tell their sports fans to drop DirecTV (or at least call in and complain).

    Yeah cause some geek (like us) in the call center has been reading tweets. You haven't caught onto the circular nature of Internet "news" (rumor).

    I just canceled the sports pack and told them it was in protest of the Pac12 situation.

    Very, very seriously considering Comcast, and I've been on DirecTV since the 90s.
