The race is on!  First to get a deal done in my area with the Pac 12 Network gets my business.  Who will win?  Fios or Comcast? Another football season where I cannot watch Pac 12 games is just torture.

When I switched from Time Warner to Verizon FiOS earlier this year, I was assured by the salesman that a deal with the PAC 12 Network was imminent and would certainly be in place when football started. Not only has that not happened, there appear to be no negotiations taking place, and frankly, no interest by Verizon adding the PAC 12. In fact, it would seem Verizon has lost interest in FiOS since all expansion and advertising in my area (Southern California) has ceased.  I think I was duped.

Don't assume that negotiations aren't happening. Verizon is VERY secretive about these things, and you never really know most of the time until a channel just shows up. It does make it frustrating a lot of times because we don't know if a specific channel is coming, but that's the way they do it. At least they aren't saying publicly like DirecTV that they simply aren't going to carry the channel.

I have the Extreme tier. I'd like to vote against the addition of yet ANOTHER expensive sports channel to this tier that will make our FiOS rates go up. NO MORE! If you sports fanatics want yet another wildly overpriced sports channel, then it should go into the Ultimate tier or that special sports package. NOT IN EXTREME, PLEASE. No more of my money for sweaty blockheads running into each other on a field!

Ike1 - you don't want a great conference network with world class olypmic sports in addition to football and basketball, I can understand that. But you have the extreme tier and you are complaining about a channel that costs 10 CENTS a month out of market and 80 CENTS a month in market? Averages out to way less than a 25 cents for Verizon's footprint. I would hardly call that an expensive channel.

$0.25 more than I want to pay for a channel(s) I will never watch.  Same goes for the other regional college sports.  They should all be offered as strictly pay channels for those who want to watch them.

...which is exactly what all of the sports fans say about OWN, E!, Hallmark, and countless other channels that we will never watch.  Yet, we put up with it.

 

Sports is big business and Verizon is potentially passing up a competitive advantage by not picking up the Pac 12 network.
