Opening Day at Dodger Stadium is on Friday, but aside from those in attendance, thousands will not be able to watch the game. SportsNet LA availability remains limited to Bright House Networks, Champion Broadband and Time Warner Cable customers only. Negotiations have presumably been ongoing with other carriers, but news on any progress has been nonexistent.

The situation took a negative turn on Thursday when TWC executive vice president and chief video and content office Melinda Witmer said DirecTV advised TWC that they will not carry the Dodgers network and have walked away from negotiations. Talks of this nature typically are a drawn out process, but news of the two sides being this far apart with the season underway is troublesome for fans who remain in the dark. Fortunately for Dodger fans, Saturday’s and Sunday’s games will be televised on Fox Sports 1 and ESPN2, respectively.
