Statement from DirecTV regarding The Mtn.
Lots of you have been in contact with me about DirecTV and its packaging of The Mtn. Here is the latest I've gotten from DirecTV's public relations department:
"We are currently evaluating our options with regard to the packaging of the service in light of this season's changes to the Mountain Network. While nothing has been finalized yet, we fully expect to have a decision prior to the start of the college football season. In the meantime, the Mountain Network is currently available nationwide as part of the DIRECTV Choice package in select areas and in the Sports Pack in all other areas."
Not sure that helps, but I wanted to pass it along for the Boise State fans concerned about it.
