|Pull your head out of your ass, DTV|
Well, the last minutes are quickly approaching, and, if uplink testing news and the president of Pac-12 Enterprises are to be trusted, DirecTV is prepared to start the season without offering any of the seven versions of the Pac-12 Network. Remember, with no paid access to a Pac-12 Network provider, there's no access to the streamed online content (what I am most looking forward to).
I have nothing on Pac12 & DTV, Dish, Charter, U-verse or Fios. Clocking ticking, but remember: 9/21 is full panic date (prior to USC-Cal)Bullshit. If we're still sitting here on 9/21 without any satellite provider coverage of the Pac-12 Network, we're way past panic date. If you want a real drop-dead date, how about tomorrow when football games start being played? I'm most worried about September 8th, when CU is scheduled to open the home portion of the season against Sacramento State. Coverage is supposed to be on the P12N, but how am I supposed to see it, or the subsequent replays if DirecTV is playing some asinine game of chicken? I had also planned on watching soccer and volleyball games (both teams still undefeated) this fall, but no dice if DirecTV is still sitting on their hands by Sept 16th (CU vs Air Force in soccer).

I'll tell you right now: I hate Comcast. Hated 'em for years. I'd rather lick Cam's ram-sack then deal with their customer service system. However, I'll embrace them in a second if DirecTV keeps stalling, and fails to deliver some version of the network.
