Exactly one day before the premiere of SportsNet LA, Time Warner Cable has finally announced the channels that viewers can watch the new network on. On Monday morning, TWC announced SportsNet LA can officially be seen on channel 431 in high definition while it’ll be on channel 249 in standard definition.
SportsNet LA will debut on Tuesday and the Dodgers first game of spring training will be on Wednesday. So far, every Time Warner Cable subscriber will be able to keep up with the Dodgers for the all their games unless they’ll be on ESPN or FOX.
A lot of hype has surrounded the premiere of the network with Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully helping out with the channel launch. A huge obstacle arises for every cable subscriber that doesn’t have Time Warner Cable. SportsNet LA has yet to make any deals with other cable distributors, such as DirecTV, AT&T U-Verse, and Cox Communications. A deal will almost likely not be made with these cable providers prior to Wednesday’s first spring training game, but the priority will be to make sure these contracts are signed before the Opening Day on March 22.
