    So it looks like right now Bright House, Cox and Time Warner are setup for streaming the P12 Network. Comcast is coming soon.

    Anyone hear if there will be a way for us to pay for streaming services directly?

    I've kicked Comcast TV services to the curb and only have their internet service now, it seems as though there is no way for me to stream without XfinityTV.

    Any place I can send an email to suggest an independent way to pay for a stream?

    the way the contracts have been written there is no way for a pay subscription to Pac-12 Net at this time. Have to have a partner service provider

    Yup, that's what I've read too. If you get a Pac 12 channel on your tv, then you have access to streaming of all games on a service like XfinityTV. No tv channel, no streaming.

    Oddly, and thankfully, I get the Pac 12 national channel here in Florida. :woot:

    The Comcast boards are full of pissed off midwesterners that can't get the channel. I think Boston and DC are in the blackout zone too. I feel your pain.

    Dang, this is not what I wanted to hear. Hoping for some future changes that allow the blackout zone people and people like me to stream.

    I have a local cable company that will never consider the Pac 12. My options are Dish or DirecTV, neither of which has Pac 12 as of right now.

    Contacted Pac 12 Networks right now and they said no streaming only service at this time. I'd be more than happy to pay for it.

    I hope there is a streaming service offered soon because it would be very depressing to not be able to watch any Pac-12 games this year. That and the internet sort of sucks out here so even if streaming is available I might be **** out of luck. I knew the ****** part of moving to Canada would be no college football, but had no idea I wouldn't be able to watch it online either.

    (sorry for the rant)

    Honestly,

    The Pac was stupid not to allow an all-access Pac-channel streaming service. If you want a better deal from the TV companies then offer a paid service and show them how it would translate better into happy customers. I bet most Pac sports-fans, especially those out of state, wouldn't even blink at the subscription fee, whatever it is...

    Scout is $100+ yearly as is Rivals.

    I personally would spend much, much more if it allowed me to watch every single Pac sporting event live. That would allow me to follow the training of our future Olympians 24/7. No other conference can match that, and yes I'm a sucker for both the Summer and Winter Olympic games...

    I would pay for it (all-access Pac channel) in my house, my parents house, at work and more... Gladly.

    This is potentially the first year since I moved out of Seattle 10+ years ago that I may actually miss the Husky home opener on TV. It's absolutely unacceptable.

    The $439 they gave me today to sign a one-year contract is but a pittance of what my Pac-12 Network viewship is worth over my lifetime.

    I will find a provider that gives me the Pac, period.

    I have Dish until March, $130 to get out of my contract, $85 a month for Comcast and not even sure that gets me the Pac-12 channel. I'd rather spend the small fortune on crappy seats at Folsom

    If I can't get Pac12 Network streaming on Comcast, I will drop my basic cable subscription.
