Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said during media day Friday that the satellite broadcaster is not going to broadcast the network, which provides coverage of the conference's sports. Pac-12 Networks has said it wants its content distributed widely and not on a specialty tier, which is where DirecTV wants it to be. Article
