Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News writes in a blog that the Pac-12 Networks were a raging success in their first year last year, based on previous viewing options for fans of the conference. It’ll only get better — for those who can tune in.
He also writes that there continues to be no apparent progress in deals between the Pac-12 and DirecTV and Charter. The Pac-12 is holding tight to its subscriber fee of 80 cents because that’s what it charged all the other networks and systems it has carriage deals with. It’s a figure DirecTV still isn’t going for.
