With the first half of the season over, the availability of Dodger games remains a hot topic. Several cable providers, such as DirectTV and Verizon, are in the middle of the dispute with Time Warner Cable in trying to obtain the rights to carry SportsNet LA.
In an advertisement published in Sunday’s print version of the LA Times, SportsNet LA informed readers of multiple so-called facts, which addressed a variety of issues.
Namely, the reported subscriber fee TWC is seeking, the comparison of DirecTV’s price to that of comparable sports networks and DirectTV raising their price for their regional sports package.
According to Bill Plunkett of the OC Register, MLB Commissioner Bud Selig said Tuesday he has “great concerns” over the matter. Team president and CEO Stan Kasten recently stated the blackout is an issue the Dodgers and TWC work on resolving on a daily basis.
