The Network Where Your Team Can Literally Disappear

USC women’s basketball has a big game right now against No. 5-ranked Stanford on the Pac-12 Network. It feels like every USC men’s game is on the Pac-12 Network. Now that’s probably a plus the way the men’s team is playing.

But the fact is Trojan basketball (men’s and women’s) are nearly invisible to those of us who are DirecTV subscribers, etc. And no one in the conference (or USC) is really doing anything about it.

    Today’s Times notes those who follow brooklyn will pay (minimum) $5 p/mo extra same for the Lakers.

    Bluntly the market drives this – if TWC arrogantly assumed the fans that receive a signal elsewhere were now going to have to fork over (not $5) $9.00 extra a month then that’s TWC’s problem. TWC refuses to allow other cable/satellite providers to select ‘a la carte’ what programs they want.

    Re. your anger Wolf – this is all on Larry Scott – he agreed to these terms even ignoring the smart way the SD Padres induced their fan base to agree to increased pricing to view the Padres. Scott ‘assumed’ he’d better sign regardless of the > % of viewership – the obligation was on TWC and as for him will then let the cable providers resolve this.

    No one bats 1.000 but Scott has once again compounded this year’s UCLA schedule by having bel-air tech play Stanford on 28th November. I thought we were told this matching a Pac-12 So. vs. a Pac-12 No. on the last day of the regular season would not occur again after the 2012 season.

    If Scott cannot have his staff or himself oversee what the cable networks have scheduled why should any of us accede to anything Scott has his hand’s in – he’s an incompetent.

      Once we accepted the $18 million per school we lost control of the schedule.
      More Thursday night games with no tailgating to come.

        That doesn’t explain UCLA playing Stanford a mere week before the Pac-12 Conf. Championship Game – we were told this wouldn’t happen again as it did three years ago – much as I loath UCLA and Stanford they both got screwed – this is on Scott 100%

          Could end up being another “Razor Bowl Game” with a repeat of the UCLA point shaving scandal.

    For me it’s not the network its the service provider. AT&T Uverse joined the small band of providers last season just in time for football. I remember the L.A. County fair where Providers with PAC 12, and other networks such as CBS, were doing land office business. People were switching services as fast as order writers could write. The PAC 12 channel (s) needs to negotiate to get on those services. In my area we had the the Big 10 and Texas network long before PAC 12 made a deal. Those who can;’t watch either switch or yell at their provider.
