"Piecing together info from sources on Pac12 & DirecTV: Cant predict last-minute snags but would b very surprised if deal not done "
Great news!!! Gives Charter customers an option to switch if they don't make a deal with the Pac 12 Networks. Remember the old cigarette ad "I would rather fight than switch" Well, This might be the reverse for Charter customers. We would rather switch than fight !
For the youngsters out there this from wikipedia:
"Us Tareyton smokers would rather fight than switch!" is an enduring slogan which appeared in magazine, newspaper, and television advertisements for Tareyton cigarettes from 1963 until 1981. It was the American Tobacco Company's most visible ad campaign in the 1960s and 1970s.
UPDATE: tweet from Wilner:
"And once deal in place, Pac12Nets will be airing on DTV in matter of hours. Groundwork being laid for transmission of signal "
