I just read this ...
... and am no longer upset about Verizon not carrying the PAC 12 network.
"The Pac-12 Network insists on identical subscriber fees (usually a few dollars per month) for each cable/satellite customer, regardless of whether or not that household is in the conference's six-state "footprint" (California, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Utah and Colorado). The SEC Network, on the other hand, is charging more per subscriber in SEC country than it is nationwide."
That is completely and utterly ridiculous. "A few dollars per subscriber" for the PAC 12 network outside of their footprint? That's absurd.
I love college football and want all of the channels that carry it ... but this is a ridiculous demand.
It's probably more like close to a dollar, but still ridiculous if they want that much for the whole country. The other college sports channels will charge around a dollar per subscriber in their footprints, then 10 cents or a quarter per month (also on less subscribed packages) for those outside their regions.
When will the Pac-12 network be available to sports veiwers with Verizon. Aside from Directv, all others have made deals with the Pac-12 network, so it is time to get this done. I only hope that this is resolved before the SEC network is added, I would like that channel also but prefer to be able to watch what interests me.
Please don't speak for everyone, There are a lot of West Coast fans here in the DC area, and the fact that Verizon can't get its stuff together and add PAC-12 to the line-up is just poor business. Seriously, people are willing to pay for it, let us pay for it. It has been 2 years now, get it together.
