    I had Dish network. It sucked.

    The pac 12 programming sucks too.

    Direct TV is better. The pac12 network wasn't worth it for me to keep Dish.

    The PAC 12network is almost like old public access TV. It’s Mr Floyd meets Wayne’s World with ex Jocks.

    I have Xfinity and I have the PAC 12 channel, so I can get OSU and Colorado at 7:30 on Saturdays.

    Larry Scott is a mediocre, old white guy who has failed upwards towards a huge, undeserved salary, as is constantly evidenced by the mistakes he makes.

    Well, when you think about it...
    - PAC hired a guy who had never been a commissioner before and paid him twice the going rate.
    - USC BOT hired a guy who had never been a university president and not sure what they pay him but it’s probably twice the going rate.
    - USC BOT hired a guy who had never been an AD before and paid him twice what the next highest paid AD received.
    - USC AD hired a guy who had never been a head coach before and paid him twice what he was worth.
    USC HC hired an asst coach who had never been an asst coach before.

    What could go wrong?

    Today we know every one of them has been fired or should be fired.

    Now who is responsible for this complete ignorance?

    Banners should fly asking John Mork and the other clowns in the BOT to step down.

    If one didnt know better, it appears SC s being run by a bunch of corrupt croneies with the competence and effectiveness of governmental bureaucrats. How could this happen?

    The damage Nikias has fostered will take years and hundreds of millions to undo.

    I just dropped Spectrum and signed up for Frontier , ( the fiber optics carrier). It has PAC 12 Network in the basic package. Spectrum did not offer PAC12 in my area of Long Beach. .

    Spectrum has Pac-12 & Dodgers. I love the Pac-12 Channel. No brainer.

    What's more amazing is that freaking YouTube TV does not carry the PAC-12 network. It's owned by a freaking Californian company in Silicon Valley. You would think Stanford and Cal grads would be able to produce a live stream.

    Frontier might be the worst customer service I have ever experienced. Was with them for a year or more and cancelled. DirecTV is a million times better, damn missing any channels.

    Shout out to @FTFO4EVER for the reddit link he DM'd me. Gonna use it tonight for the "no one will watch" 8:00pm tip off. Thanks, Larry!

    I've had no problem with Frontier customer service.

    Not trying to say you didn't have great customer service, but it's coming. I will never forget the way they treated me as a customer.

    I tried everything in my power to change them as my internet provider after cancelling cable. I was unsuccessful due to the area where I live. So, I guess I am still a customer, lol.

    For the record, their internet is very fast. Customer service is the same for any issues, complete garbage.

    I have DISH here in NoCal where I take care of my dad. The 12-PAC Channel has always been a nice bonus.

    It’s always been good reception except during extra heavy rain and even then not for long.

    But the DISH box we had finally croaked after about 12 years. Everything about the new box and remote is harder to work plus the on-screen guide is nowhere near as user-friendly as before plus everything seems geared to get you to select on-demand (aka pay even more).

    I wonder how many seniors they lost by changing what used to be fairly user-friendly.

    Would not surprise me at all if they also dropped it, they negotiate pretty tough with the various channels (they could drop most of the ESPN lineup and it wouldn’t bother me except for some college and pro games).
