LA mayor prods Time Warner Cable to reach Dodgers TV deals with other providers
LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti chided Time Warner Cable at an industry gathering Tuesday for not reaching deals with other TV providers so all fans of the Dodgers could watch the baseball games.
The Dodgers are more than a month into their regular season and so far only customers of Time Warner Cable Inc., its partner Bright House Networks, and a small operator called Champion Broadband have been able to see them.
That leaves out subscribers of major providers such as DirecTV, Dish Network, Verizon and AT&T.
The contract to broadcast Dodgers games, which had long been with Fox Sports' Prime Ticket regional sports network, was snatched up Time Warner Cable Inc. last year in a deal estimated to be worth $7 billion over the next two decades.
