First Dodgers, Will DirecTV Add Pac-12 Network?

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.

  • Boston College QB Anthony Brown has transferred to Oregon and will be immediately eligible. Brown was a three-year starter and passed for 1,250 yards, nine touchdowns against two interceptions in six games last season before he got hurt.

  1. Larry Scott could have done a deal with DirecTV back in 2012, when the network was probably two or three times as valuable to a provider than it is now. Bravo, Larry!

  2. There’s nothing attractive about the PAC 12 Network, the team that should be the face of the conference could careless about football, and has never even qualify for the NCAA playoffs.
