Maybe that's not for PAC12 Network access but each team's network access, I don't know - I haven't gone any further. Trying to get everything we watch through a patchwork of services like Sling, Netflix, Hulu, ESPN+, etc., just seems like a major hassle. It would be exhausting to try to figure out if each program one of us likes to watch is available on one or more of those services, then determine if it's live or on demand or whatever. And have to deal with that on 4 or 5 different TVs that may or may not have easy access to those services, depending on age. We have Netflix, but that's for the kids. I think I've watched a couple of comedy specials, and that's it. I don't binge-watch 5 year old TV series... And my wife would kill me if we gave up 2 TB of DVR space for 50 hours of cloud storage. Anyway, it would be great if the PAC12 did a deal with DTV because I would love to have access to their games. You're missing a lot of really good stuff (for adults) on Netflix, even if you hate subtitles - Peaky Blinders (British), Rake (Australia), The 100 (American), The Last Kingdom (British), Dr. Foster (British), Doc Martin (British), just to mention a handful. Also all of Madmen and Breaking Bad. Most TV series aired last less than a year ago. With Premium ($13.99/month), you can watch on four different screens at the same time. Sling TV Orange & Blue Packages ($40) + Sports Extra ($10) gives you 50+ of the most popular "cable" channels: https://www.sling.com/#dyn-grid-package-tab-3-60m With Sling Orange & Blue you can watch up to four streams at one time. You get 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage for $5, 100 hours for $10. What kept me tied to cable for a long time was sports. That's no longer the case.
