I was shocked when I saw the news this morning. I think DirecTV thought they would force The Pac12 to meet their demands, but instead The Pac12 moved on to someone else. What else this shows is even though everyone said it was about all 7 channels, it wasn't Dish as I read it has the Nat'l channel. My guess DirecTV had a deal and at the last moment they changed what they wanted and Pac12 packed up and went to Dish with the same offer. DirecTV really blew this one, they have opened the door for Dish and cable companies to start taking both home and business customers. I know that now that this deal is done and a deal with DirecTV is all but dead, I will be making a switch.
