SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Unable to reach a deal with DirecTV, Pac-12 Networks has issued an open letter to fans recommending they switch to another television provider.
Pac-12 Networks will televise 15 nonconference games and 20 Pac-12 football games this season.
"If you're one of the fans who won't be satisfied without Pac-12 football, or our more than 135 men's basketball games and hundreds of other live events, we recommend finding Pac-12 Networks with another television provider," the letter says.
The network opens its coverage Thursday with two games - Northern Colorado at Utah, and Northern Arizona at Arizona State.
