Re: Concern growing about Lakers games not being on TV

I hate TWC more than any other company Ive ever done business. I considered ditching cable and getting NBATV Broadband. Looked into it and what games would be blacked out. So I counted all the games that will be blacked out (besides ABC since they can be watched with no cable) and it totals TWENTY-FOUR GAMES!!! All nationally televised games and NBATV games will be blacked out...NBATV, TNT, ESPN.....wtf...over 25% of the season is blacked out if I buy league pass!!!! Pathetic

$4 Billion Reasons.

It's a Channel Dedicated to Lakers, while also covering the Sparks and Galaxy.

You wouldn't be able to watch ANY laker game. They are all blacked out because you're in the local media market.

Even the away-games?

TWC is asking $3.95 per suscriber in the Los Angeles area. ESPN has a $5.05 per subscriber nationally, to give a perspective of how much money TWC is looking for.

Zip, Nada, Negative.

You're in the Lakers Media Market (Not you specially, just in general). The NBA wants you to subscribe through your local provider. Doesn't matter if you're home or away.

If your tv has web access I recommend getting the broadband pick 5. It's like $109 and you pick 5 teams only. Between that and nationally televised games you should be set. I was going to do that nw that I live in lakers/clippers market again. Going with the twolves, thunder, spurs, Knicks and mavericks.

It sucks. Ultimately, with the kind of revenue Fox generates I'm surprised they didn't just offer a bunch of money for the rights to both home and road Lakers games. Does this mean that Clippers games will move to FS West now? Because I hate listening to Ralph Lawler and that other guy.

if you like the fact that the Lakers spend money like the Yankees then you have to accept the fact that the Lakers need to lock up a big TV contract which is what this is all about - all this stuff will get worked out eventually

(besides KCAL's production values and coverage stank)

I don't know if Fox Sports West has access to 4 Billion Dollars. I don't think they can walk up to the Big Wigs at Fox and go how 'bout it?

Re: Concern growing about Lakers games not being on TV

They can't get maximum ad revenue unless the games are in every home. They will take this to the last second to panic as many as possible to get the TW cable.

We might miss a pre season game or two but, they'll straighten it out eventually. Too much money on the line not to.

Just like the NFL refs, when it hurts in the pocketbook they tend to move real quickly !
