    Reps at Costco or less informed than any other dtv rep in general. Wikipedia is well, Wikipedia.

    The scroll is interesting. I can stream the channel legally so I’ll have to pull it up and see if I see it.

    I could see them finally getting carriage but not advertising n purpose until all the i’ where dotted and someone jumped the gun on a crawl too. Of course that would mean there isn’t an actual final agreement yet....

    Will you reach an agreement with DirecTV?
    support.pac-12.com - May 14, 2017

    "We completely understand and share your frustration. We are aggressively pursuing an agreement with DirecTV. But unfortunately, DIRECTV subscribers are facing a season without access to 35 Pac-12 football games and all of our other great content. It is disappointing that DIRECTV won’t deliver the content customers clearly want but ultimately that is a decision they need to make. We encourage you as a DIRECTV subscriber to contact them and echo our calls to have the network added to their systems."

    Will there ever be a day when DirecTV picks up Pac-12 Networks?
    awfulannouncing.com - 06/28/2017

    "It’s been an annual question since the Pac-12 Networks launched in 2012 and the answer has always been no. Back in 2015, there was brief hope with an actual signal test which some sharp-eyed DirecTV viewers saw, but it never got farther than that. Talks between the Pac-12 and DirecTV collapsed following that signal test and since then, the two sides appear no closer to an agreement than when the networks began."

    "Unless there’s a last-second breakthrough, this dispute will go into its sixth season and viewers will again be left in the middle."

    I have legal access to Pac-12 networks as well. I watched off and on yesterday evening and did not see a mention of DIRECTV carriage in the scrolls. However remote the possibility, Pac-12 Conference media days for the upcoming football season are late next week, so it is within the realm of possibility the announcement could be a big deal and headline the Pac-12 Network segment of the Pac-12 media days. Highly doubtful, but possible.

    A secret that big would be hard to keep. We certainly would have a better source than an anonymous Wikipedia edit from a new IP or a random scroll. (Was it the normal style scroll or some special overlay?)

    I would not be the least bit surprised to see one of the bloggers like Swanni write something about Pac 12 coming to Directv on 8/1, sourced to Wikipedia or "posts in online forums" (i.e. here) :rolleyes:

    References to Directv beginning PAC-12 on August 1 appear to have been removed from Wikipedia.

    Looks like it was removed by someone who has been editing Wikipedia since 2004 and has hundreds of contributions, so presumably he knows what he's doing and cleans up unattributed claims. If the person who added it had only supplied proper attribution that wouldn't have been necessary.
