AT&T and the NBA managed to get a deal done and the channel was added yesterday. I'm watching the channel right now in HD ! Why is the important and great news for Laker fans? Because if your a Laker fan outside of LA or Socal and the Laker game on Tuesday's which they have a lot on their schedule every season is voted in for NBA Fan Night which also happens a lot that game is blacked out on the internet version of NBA League Pass Broadband.In order to have this channel on AT&T Uverse you need to be on at least the U300 package plan.
HD Channel is 1632
Standard definition channel is 632
So for me down here in San Diego I'm pretty much set with all the Laker Home games on FSN West HD and also when the Lakers play the road game @ the Clippers the game is on FSN Prime Ticket HD since we don't get KCAL 9 down here.
Still will need to get NBA League Pass Broadband though for about 15 to 20 Laker road games that won't be nationally televised on ABC,TNT,ESPN, or NBATV.
Yeah this still irritates me that we don't get KCAL 9 here and I have to spend this much money each season to make sure I don't miss any games but to me it's better than having to deal with crappy and un reliable illegal streaming websites.
