Pac-12 officials remain unable to come to terms with satellite provider DircecTV to carry the conference television network, Commissioner Larry Scott said.

The two sides have remained far apart since the launch of Pac-12 Networks two years ago. DirecTV has about 20 million subscribers.

“We keep trying to open the door, trying to find solutions,” Scott said. “We have 65 other distributors. There is nothing more to say. There is no immediate  sign of a resolution.”

If the conference were to cut its price demand to get on DirecTV, it probably would have to drop its price with other distributors.
