Sounds like baloney to me. Foxsports has already offered the Dodgers $3 billion. The cost for subscribers is going up no matter which company pays the money.

I am going to call every week and get discounts until the Lakers come on. I am a torrent master and internet streamer, so if I have to watch stream or torrent the laker games, so be it.

Twc is nothing but a greedy, mega corporation. Their cable quality is utter crap and they regularly raise their internet rates. I view Directv as a reasonable company. Twc is simply trying to stick it to them and i applaud Directv for standing up for themselves. I will not switch to Twc even if it means not watching some Laker games.

It's also funny how Twc is charging Directv $3.95 per subscriber. That's the amount they raised my internet bill per month. Is that crazy or what? To raise a customer's bill $4 just like that? Twc regularly raise their rates to. Greedy sobs.

Lol. Yeah, i did that too in the past. They don't want people to leave so they offer discounts. Also did it for my parent's service. I might do it again using the Laker excuse. Lol.

Two amazing performances at Staples tonight. Kobe Bryant playing 43 minutes on a bad foot putting up the numbers he did and the beautiful picture from TWC. Just saying. Like everyone else I'm bummed with how this season has gone so far, and it sucks many here still do not have the games on their provider. But that signal from Staples tonight was amazing! Smoked ESPN and Prime Ticket which were clean themselves. Props where they're due in that regard.

Well works out in a crappy way - As a Cox subsciber, I'm in no rush to buy TWC SportsNet if Mike Brown is still the coach
There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:
the LA Lakers and NBA Clippers.

I've been watching all the Lakers-related content on TWC since the channel went online.

With all the hype leading up to the season, you have to wonder how TWC will respond if Brown stays, the Lakers sh*t the bed, miss the playoffs, etc.

admittedly, I typed my answer out as if some TWC focus group researcher was going to read it. I hope the "higher ups" decide to make a business decision :man12:

If TWC starts to see bandwagon fans jumping off and sponsors walking away, then hopefully Jimbo and his protege MB will feel the heat.

If i could, i would TOTALLY switch to TWC but the problem is...they dont provide in Irvine!!!!!!! This has been so frustrating and I feel like TWC has cursed our Laker team with their hardball negotiations and until the major network providers don't have a deal, I feel the Lakers will continue to suck. I know its superstitious of me but I just feel like the TWC thing has left a very bad taste in millions of laker fans mouths...

^ They were a jinx company WAY before the Lakers started losing every game the last month. I am not overly religious but I do believe there are jinxed things around us. Whether it's a certain person or certain thing that always has a aura of disease around it. TWC is a (bleep) company to it's core. It treats it's people like crap, customers like crap, everything around their business is revolved around garbage.

All seriousness, here, I am not joking around here. This is on the Lakers. I do not care how many excuses you pull out, the Lakers have aligned themselves with a horrible partner. They were fine with primeticket/fox for 2 decades. And now, they have shut out their own fans. How can you put a product like this, a world class product, and you can not watch? Forget those who could switch, save me the bull, how bout those who have NO CHANCE of getting them because TWC is not in their area? How bout them?

Just complained to DirecTV and threatened ti cancel. All they could do is take 12 dollars off my monthly bill. Couldn't give me NBA league pass.

I am in Irvine too. Can't get TWC even if I tried. I either watch the games at home or at the gym. 24 HR Fitness has DirectTV. Yeah i am screwed. :bang: :bang:
