    Sooner Ute...

    samantha is upset for many reasons. But he is stunned because all that matters to him, when it comes to BYU football, is how many OTHER people can see the game. Not whether HE can see the game.

    I know. Ridiculous isn't it?

    sammyg, you have both DirectTV and Dish Network? Fancy!

    Not really sure what your point is. I don't want to touch off a provider war, but as a consumer, I go to the retailer that has what I need. I am not upset (like you might be) that I can't fill up my car with gas at Home Depot.

    If I only want to watch Notre Dame football, I buy some rabbit ears. If I want to watch ESPN, I have to invest more. If I want to watch Nickelodean or AMC or Cartoon Network, there might be some Dish providers that don't offer those channels, so I find a provider that has them.

    The PAC-12 Network MIGHT be in the Comcast Digital package? How is that bad? Why spend big dollars on a high definition TV only to stream low-res content?

    Stunned? Not here. Just can't relate to what your fussy about. I'm set for the season.

    24 hours later... Utes are stunned.

    The new PAC 12 Network does not come close to the old MWC network (theMtn) coverage in Utah.

    No satellite deal and little to no independent cable operator coverage in rural Utah cities at this time. Only on Comcast and it will probably require a digital package, not economy.

    Maybe internet coverage, definitely audio streaming on ESPN 700 radio.

    Even I didn't imagine it would be this bad.

    It could change but it still does not look good for those expecting a Duckhunter absence.

    "Unfortunately, Pac-12 Networks does not have an agreement with your video provider. However, you can request they provide you with the networks."

    After I put in my provider of... wait for it...


    and several smaller markets in Utah... that are not on Comcast.

    Of course this might change in the next few days but at this moment in time I'm kind of on the floor laughing like Duckhunter right now.

    This is not going to end well for johntheliarinslc. pac12 network nowhere near what it needs to be for him to get his wish.

    Really cool article about Shepherd. With his speed, he could be a star if he puts in the work.

    Unfortunately, if you have satellite, it's deja vu - just like the Mtn - it's wait and see all over again.
