I've given up hope on the preseason. Luckily my homey in LA has TWC and they have an Internet viewing option.

Re: Concern growing about Lakers games not being on TV

Im getting very close to changing providers. It sucks and will cost me a lot of money. I still want to believe that it will all get hammered out but Im not sure if I have the fortitude to wait any longer

Re: Concern growing about Lakers games not being on TV

^Really?!? You would drop FIOS for the satan that is TWC?? I guess if this persisted Id understand but IMO at the WORST this will be ironed out 1 week into the season. I suspect sooner. All the cable companies are doing is playing chicken until game 1.

Re: Concern growing about Lakers games not being on TV

Yeah I was freaking out a couple weeks ago, but after doing some research I'm confident all the major providers will be on board before the 30th.

If you call and say you're going to switch providers at the very least they are going to cut your cost.

So we're less than two weeks away from the start of the NBA Season and most of us are still shit out of luck.

They're all going to hammer out a deal at the deadline with the guns to their head. This happens everytime with major cable renewals/signings.

Unless you have a smaller provider (ironically, like Brighthouse) I wouldn't worry.

Cox Cable and Time Warner Cable at odds over Lakers channel

The first regular season Los Angeles Lakers game scheduled to air on Time Warner Cable's new SportsNet channel is just a week away and the cable company still does not have any distribution deals with other pay-TV providers in the region.

If Time Warner Cable doesn't get deals done soon, millions of Lakers fans will be missing a lot of basketball.

On Wednesday, Cox Cable, which has 1.2 million subscribers in Southern California, primarily in Orange County and San Diego, said its offer to carry SportsNet and Time Warner Cable's Spanish-language sports channel Deportes on a specialty tier along with other sports channels was rebuffed.

"We are committed to meeting the needs of all Cox customers, not just sports fans," Cox said in a statement, adding that "the price for the Lakers is one of the highest wholesale prices that we have seen."

Time Warner Cable is seeking as much as $3.95 per-month, per-subscriber for the two channels. The two channels launched Oct. 1. Besides the Lakers, SportsNet and Deportes also carry the Los Angeles Galaxy soccer team. Time Warner Cable is also expected to pursue rights to the Dodgers, whose contract with Fox's Prime Ticket regional sports channel expires after next season.

"I think it is extremely expensive for basically a one-team channel," said Dave Bialis, senior vice president of Cox's California operations.

I want to drop Cox out of principle.

Time Warner Cable Sports statement on distribution

Wednesday, October 24, 2012 at 05:12 PM by Twcsportsnet.com
With the Los Angeles Lakers, LA Galaxy and Los Angeles Sparks, two networks and unprecedented behind-the-scenes programming, Time Warner Cable SportsNet and Time Warner Cable Deportes are delivering tremendous value for Southern California sports fans.

Any assertion that we are the highest priced regional sports outlet in the country is simply untrue; as a significant buyer of regional sports across the country, we know that there are higher priced regional sports networks, including Root Sports that we buy from DirecTV.

Cox and DirecTV know that there is no regional sports network anywhere in the country that is offered on an optional tier -- that would be unprecedented.

If Cox or DirecTV choose not to carry our networks, we and their customers will be very disappointed but we are confident there will be other alternatives for their customers to see this highly-anticipated Lakers season.
