Pattern for Direct TV ?

Do you see a pattern here:

Today by David Hatfied of Inside Tucson Business:
(On a lark, I asked a DirecTV sales rep about the channel. She put me on hold, came back and apologized for the delay and said it would be available but it would be part of the sports tier, which by itself costs $20 a month. Nobody else at DirecTV would confirm that.)

Last Friday I reported  on this blog that "Realtime Duck" over at the forum "Open Season" on educk wrote:
I just got off the phone with them. They will carry it, but it will cost you. It will be included in the ESPN game plan. Early Bird price is $120 for that plan.

The Regional Sports PACK will include "overflow" games from the network, though, as anybody who has had fox, comcast, or any of the other like networks on the regional packages knows, you game can get pre-empted(?) or replaced at anytime. Regional is $12 mo on Direct and will include the extra NBC channels for the upcoming Olympics.
Have they already decided and have they  told their sales staff or is the sales staff "free lancing." and telling the customer what they want to hear?

Still no word on Charter Communications!

Living in Medford, Oregon  if Charter Communications doesn't carry the Pac 12 Networks and Direct TV does it will be a no brainer! I and many other Charter customers will jump ship as soon as we can get out of our contracts with minimal damages. The word will go out to Ducks, Beavers and other Pac 12 fans in Southern Oregon  on how to switch and get the best deal and we won't even ask Direct TV for a commission. Consumer choice is what it is all about. Isn't the free enterprise system great!

Win the Day!
