The Pac-12 Network launched on Aug. 15 on many cable outlets, but DirecTV has still yet to agree to pick up the channel. The reports have been all over the place with the two sides no where near an agreement on Aug. 24, and then just one day later another report is saying a deal is possibly by Monday.
I cannot imagine the Pac-12 agreeing to terms that would not have the national network (and potentially the regional channels in the regional areas) available on the regular Sports Pack. Agreeing to have all the networks on a separate plan would be a lose-lose for just about everyone. The best possible solution is to have the national network on the Sports Pack and the This way the diehards can be appeased with the premium package and everyone who just wants the basic distribution to the big football and basketball matchups will also get what they want.
