It may be a test feed. Eric Pincus reported that DirectTV was doing a test feed a week or two ago.

Channel 230. Yah, Mega Dens has back to back shows coming up, followed by Haunted House for Sale. Nice. Nice programming. Maybe they can mix in a reality show there one day.

Anyone watching "#LakeShow" on TWCSN?

They read tweets from fans.

Seems like almost every fan you encounter on the web is calling for Brown's head on a platter, but you wouldn't know it from the tweets they're cherry picking on that show.

What a joke.

Does this make you greedy though? Or, just doing what you think is best for you?

Back to picture quality....tonight is excellent test. Which will be the cleanest signal from the same event, TWC or Prime Ticket? Wednesday in Portland watching at very large, bright size I thought it was about a B. Some cameras looked cleaner than others. Great colors from all but just this unsolid semi artifacting to it during camera motion. Then when camera stopped like during free throws it would be more solid. Not as bad as ESPN a couple of years ago before they got great. Plus for me the picture seemed to "blink" almost periodically throughout the telecast.

For comparison I would switch to Clippers vs Memphis from Staples and yep it was clean and rock solid. Just like Fox West and KCAL and Prime Ticket always were for the Lakers. So tonight will tell a lot.

WHOA...acid test comparison as well. Forgot that ESPN also has this game. Unless they make a liar out of me, check out how clean their telecast will look. This is a great system "shootout" between all three networks.

That's odd, why would a team that just struck a deal with a cable provider for millions upon millions of dollars be putting TWC equipment into their facility?

I think it was the Libyans. Or maybe some schmuck who just wanted to get more followers to his Twitt account.

While providers play hardball, Lakers fans are missing basketball

Time Warner Cable still doesn't have a deal with Cox and DirecTV to show Lakers games on its new SportsNet. The providers don't want to pay the asking price.


By Joe Flint

November 2, 2012

Although the winless Lakers are hardly must-see television at the moment, that is of little solace to the millions of DirecTV and Cox subscribers who are unable to watch the team's games on their new cable home, SportsNet, which is owned by Time Warner Cable.

Time Warner Cable hoped to have all of its distribution agreements for SportsNet and its Spanish-language companion channel, Deportes, locked up by now. Deals with Charter and Verizon Fios were finished before the first Lakers regular-season game appeared on the two channels Wednesday, but both Cox and DirecTV are playing hardball.

Cox and DirecTV have almost 3 million subscribers in Southern California, many of whom have taken to social networking to criticize the two pay-TV companies for not getting a Lakers deal done.

Given how much DirecTV counts on sports as a selling point to subscribers, the satellite broadcaster's slowness to embrace SportsNet has puzzled some.

One reason DirecTV and Cox are reluctant to sign on for SportsNet and Deportes, at least at the price Time Warner Cable wants (up to $3.95 per subscriber, per month) is that they also face a big fee increase with the Dodgers down the road.

Currently the Dodgers get about $40 million a season in TV rights fees from Prime Ticket, which is owned by News Corp.'s Fox Sports. That pact expires after next season. Guggenheim Partners paid $2.15 billion for the Dodgers in part because it was their belief that they can make much of that back in television rights. When Frank McCourt still owned the Dodgers, Fox sought a renewal of the rights for $3 billion over 20 years, which averages out to $150 million per season; that was ultimately rejected by Major League Baseball.

Fox is trying to negotiate an agreement with Guggenheim Partners to keep the team on Prime Ticket. Time Warner Cable also wants the Dodgers for SportsNet. A bidding war could drive the price beyond the $3 billion Fox offered to McCourt, and whatever network gets the team will seek a big increase in license fees for the channel from pay-TV distributors.

Much of those costs eventually are passed down to the consumer in the form of bigger cable bills.

Time Warner Cable, Cox and DirecTV all declined to talk specifics about Lakers negotiations but insist discussions are continuing.
