When is Cox Cable going to get on board and offer Times Warner's SportsNet LA channel so we can see Dodgers games? All preseason games will be televised, beginning Feb. 26, but if Cox doesn't reach an agreement with TW, we fans in South Orange County will be shut out. Cox managed to come to agreement with TW to show Lakers games, let's make sure they do the same for the Dodgers. It's going to be a fantastic season and I, for one, don't want to miss a single pitch. C'mon Cox, get on the ball and get this done!
Please Cox Make the deal . I have the sports Package Just for Dodger games That used to be on Prime Ticket !!!. I guess I will cancel Package if theres no deal .

Yes, Domino, I am well aware of the Dodgers' schedule. I just don't want Cox to wait till the last minute and we fans miss out on games -- even exhibition.
Hi ColleenD, please feel free to submit the same request for me every single day until Cox adds SportsNet LA. Thanks!
Well, I don't think I'm the only one who expects my local cable company to carry the cable station broadcasting one of our local professional baseball team's games. I don't want to make threats, but I wouldn't be surprised if a number of subscribers look elsewhere for their cable/satellite needs if this doesn't happen. Cox did it for the Lakers. I expect them to do it for the Dodgers.
I've been a loyal Cox Customer for over 11 years but I've been a Dodger fan my entire life. I just upgraded to the Contour system so I would really hate to have to switch to Dish or DirecTV if they make a deal with SportsNetLA before Cox does. Since MLB.tv blacks out Dodgers games for the entire LA/OC area I would be forced to switch!

Please put in my request for the TW Sportsnet LA so I can watch all the Dodger games as well!
I wonder how many of the "customers" who are screaming for the Dodgers will also be screaming when Cox passes along the $5/month fee for this channel to its subscribers? I wonder how many non-baseball fans will be screaming when their rates go up as well?

FYI...Dish Network has said that they have no plans to ever carry the channel because of the extreme price wanted.
As of March 6, no other provider including Verizon FIOS, DirecTV, or Cox has signed up for the channel. The cost of $5 per every basic cable subscriber is absolutely ridiculous for a channel that will only carry one baseball team 24/7/365! In comparison, ESPN charges just over $5 per subscriber and you get all the major sports.
TWC overspent for the Dodgers contract and now they expect everyone in the SoCal region to help them pay for the mistake. Such BS.
