As college football revs up this weekend, turns out there’s a pretty embarrassing (some might call it ridiculous) donut hole in the Pac-12 Networks coverage—the UC Berkeley campus. The campus is on DirecTV, which isn’t carrying the new sports networks, and Cal athletics director Sandy Barbour is hot about it. She tells the Chronicle:
DirecTV has been phenomenal in their customer service up until now. This is a nonstarter for me. If DirecTV can’t figure out how to carry the Pac-12 Networks by the first football game (on Thursday), I’m done.”
Noted: She’s referring to the three games involving Pac-12 teams Thursday night. Cal opens its season Saturday, inaugurating renovated Memorial Stadium against Nevada.
