The Dodgers will be on DirecTV after Spectrum Networks reached a deal with the satellite TV provider.
Naturally, someone will wonder if this means the Pac-12 Network is next for DirecTV?
I would caution against expecting this to happen. AT&T, which owns DirecTV, probably did this to make the provider appear more attractive to potential buyers.
The Dodgers add value. The Pac-12 Network does not. The Dodgers have won countless division titles, NLCS titles and made World Series appearances.
What has the Pac–12 done? It’s a soft, mediocre conference without a rabid fan base. Pac-12 attendance last season (46,588) was its lowest since 1982.
So why would AT&T want that? Unless it could get a sweetheart deal, which Larry Scott has never wanted to offer.
