Oh I agree with you 100%. But.....what I don't get is IF a new deal is now in place WHY both sides have not announced that!? If Dish is to receive any of the online apps, like watchespn and espn3, and even ESPNU in HD then that would be a boon to anyone sitting on the fence thinking of switching over the Pac 12 Network not being on Directv. Because I know several on the fence who are afraid of switching and signing a 2 year deal for a provider w/o ESPN. So my thought is - let's get on with it and announce it if a deal has been done.
