    Every other cable or dish knows that DirecTV is the only place too go if you love sports.

    Or live in Portland. ;)

    I think most would agree that the only reason some consider DirecTV the "go to" provider for sports is because of Sunday Ticket.

    With this PAC 12 thing all of the games are on my fsn networks and most are on CBS ABC fox or ESPN. I have never had a game outside of soccer that I could not get. I'm sure there are d-3 games that I can't see but ya lol.

    no I think its more than that ... Sunday Ticket is Point 1 for sure but the quantity of available RSN's is probably 5 fold and each and every one of the sports packages has the capability to show more than 9 HD feeds simultaneously and access to HD in every one of the RSN cases (remember we get CSN Philly feeds in the big three sports packages (NHL, MLB, NBA) plus the quality of the HD is not beaten by anyone and only tied by Fios.

    If you are an SEC fan and live in Raleigh DirecTV is the best option, but regardless of who the provider is, WRAL pre-empts the national CBS broadcast of the SEC games to show regional broadcasts of ACC games. Often times, the ACC game could have been seen on ESPN, but because WRAL is showing a regional broadcast of the game, the ACC game is blacked out on ESPN, so regardless of provider, ESPN is dark and the SEC game is not shown.

    The only way to get the SEC Network games is with the out-of-market sports pack on DirecTV. With DirecTV I can get every SEC game that is broadcast except for the CBS national game. No other provider offers that many SEC games in my DMA.

    RTN use to use old dish equipment when it was a stand alone item on 95W KU Band. They used a 2800 at the time

    Dish bought the rights to RTN...so the ONLY way to get RTN is through Dish. Its not available on Directv or cable....

    Your post is very misleading, not to mention confusing.

    The Pac-12 is D-1 in all sports, so I have no idea why you mentioned d-3 games...and all games that are on Pac-12 Network are exclusive to the Pac-12 Network, so you cannot see them on CBS, ABC, Fox, ESPN or any FSN regional network.

    Winters,...
    And the games that are on the networks are not available on the Pac-12 Network. Fine for most everyone but those alums and undergrads who want to see every game their school take part in.

    You make it sound like the games on the PAC-12 network have no interest to the casual fan. But the end of February, beginning of March is when the casual fan starts to engage with basketball. There are quite a few key bubble games down the stretch on the P12N, and I think having most of the PAC-12 men's and women's basketball tournament games on the PAC-12 network is going to frustrate quite a few people who have DirecTV.

    The PAC 12 has been irrelevant in men's basketball since 2001, and other than Sanford, they have not been relevant in women's basketball since 1984.

    That was very inciteful. Of course relevance this time of year is as much about who is on the bubble as it is who is likely to make it to the final four. Since we are talking about TV, I watched BYU and St. Mary's last night for no other reason that because it was two bubble teams playing each other.

    And you did not need the Pac 12 network to see that game.

    No but upcoming games on P12N like Stanford @ Oregon or Arizona State @ UCLA are similar in shaping up who does and doesn't make the tournament. My point was, if I as a basketball fan, watch a game involving two teams I don't care an iota about (BYU and St. Marys) because of their impact on teams on the bubble, the same goes for many games on the P12N. Especially when you consider how many teams in the P12 are on or near the bubble this year (Oregon, UCLA, Colorado, California, Arizona State, and Stanford). Obviously most of the P12 conference tournament will shape up those bubble races as well, and only 3 games on the men's side aren't on the P12N.

    No P12 games today.
    DIRECTV won't get tomorrow's Cal @ OSU and Stanford and UO. Three of those teams are fighting for spots in the tournament.

    I'm not a Washington State fan, but if I were, I'd be upset or switching. They have 24 men's basketball games on the Pac-12 Networks.
