New minor developments in the Pac-12 vs DirecTV dispute have emerged, although the two companies have not yet come to an agreement. According to industry media sources
, DirecTV released a statement a few days ago, in which they explained that they are ready to provide Pac-12 programs to subscribers who want it, but the Pac-12 Network needs to agree to some of DirecTV's terms first. DirecTv has asked for better prices that are comparable to those offered by other sports networks, or to allow Pac-12 fans to buy the channels separately or purchase each individual game on demand.
In the meantime, Pac-12 Networks have reached a carriage agreement with telecommunications company SureWest, which serves the Greater Sacramento Valley and the Kansas City region. SureWest is known for recently launching "SureWest Sports Show", which was the first TV program to highlight Sacramento region's youth and high school sports.
