    If you pay for 3 months of Sling they will give you a Roku 2 or a discounted Appletv.

    Better to spend the $140 on a new AppleTV. I have an old and new. New one is a big leap, much better remote, better resolution, 7.1 sound compatibility, Siri (which if you have an iPhone allows HomeKit) etc

    Also, only the USC and ASu games are on FS1. You won't really need to keep the full package all season. That is something to keep in mind.

    You will if you want basketball games.

    You'll need Orange/Sports for ESPNU, PAC12 and ESPN News. (You do get access to the watch ESPN app)

    This is great news, because that app is much better than the Sling app.

    So what package do I need to get for all of my Utah needs? Orange plus sports?

    Does the WatchESPN app come only with the Orange package, or is it part of the Sports pack?

    Also for some reason I can't sign up for the Blue package without the order also including the Orange. And then I have to add the Sports pack on top. At this rate the new Dish (pseudo) a la carte plans will be cheaper.

    I think the App comes with Orange, but you have to have the sports pack to get Pac-12/Fox Sports so it's kind of a moot point.

    No actually Fox Sports is only on Blue, can't be added to Orange. Fs1 is the only thing I really need to buy. I don't mind getting the Blue plus Sports pack, but was hoping that would include WatchESPN.

    The USC and Arizona games are on FS1, as are a number of basketball games. The PAC channels come with the Sports pack and FS1 is on Blue.

    It might be worth getting Orange+Sports, then either adding Blue for the weeks of USC/ASU then cancelling if Sling will prorate service for the month, or bite the bullet and get the Full Meal Deal for Sept 23 through Nov 10.

    Prob still cheaper than a sports bar.

    So this is where it's a bit confusing with them.

    ESPN is only in Orange. Fox Sports is only in Blue.

    To get both you have to subscribe to Orange AND Blue, which is $40. But to get ESPNU you have to subscribe to the sports package as well.

    And on top of that if you only do Orange, you get one stream. You have to have Blue or Orange And Blue to get 3 streams.

    I need to call them. It is too confusing.

    I actually just want *legal* access to the WatchESPN app, and will need to think of something else for FS1. I can very easily find illegal access to the app and feeds or borrow a friend's. It is only messy when I want to get them legally.

    This looks promising. For $35, you get all the college football you want (though I don't see the pac-12 network on there):

    That's a much better deal that Sling.

    Just noticed that Ted Miller was one of those that got cut today. One of the few reasons I liked espn.com, and now he's gone. It's a shame really.

    They cut Chantel Jennings as well. Pretty much gutted their long term Pac-12 coverage. (With Gemmell leaving a few months ago)

    I always thought Katz was good for his connections but not so much for his writing or analysis. He always knew who was going where or what was happening. Maybe that's not so valuable anymore in a Twitter world. We all know who is going where and what is happening. We don't need Katz to break the story for us anymore. Just a half-baked thought that I'm sure SoCal will correct.

    The inside story about why the PAC-12 Networks isn't on DirecTV.

    TL;DR - Both sides have their own concerns and they couldn't agree.
