Im only in pasadena and we cant get TWC since this is a Charter cable town (which i used to have before Direct tv), so its DTV or bust. I believe they will get it done

Who cares? There will be enough national games in season to give the flavor, then when every game watching becomes a must, the Playoffs, it'll be on national broadcast for every game. No reason to buy anything right now.

Some people actually enjoy watching every single Laker game, so yeah, I care. The NBA is my favorite sport, I not only watch Laker games, I watch almost any other NBA game that's on TV whether it's on ESPN, ABC, TNT, or even Bulls games on WGN. I know most people love the NFL above all else, but I love the NBA most and life just wouldn't be the same if I couldn't watch all Laker games, it's one of my favorite things to do.

That's what friends with TWC are for :man9: .. I'm as die-hard as they come, but I am NOT switching back to them. No way in hell.

I'm not saying people should switch to TWC ( non issue for me since I will watch every single game on International League Pass) ... but Phil XI post was saying it's not a big deal to miss 50 Lakers games for huge Lakers fans

I guess I'll have to listen to the radio broadcast until a deal comes through with DirecTV. I fully expect to miss all the pre-season games unfortunately. This is going to be a royal pain.

In the old days it was almost just as good to listen to the games. Many times all I had was the radio during the '80s and I would listen to Chick with his "World's Eye View." Forget TV, it was nearly as good as being there. In fact when you were there at the games you would miss hearing Chicky Baby's play by play. It was more exciting hearing him broadcast. He was just that good.

Of course it's not the same now. But I'll be the first to admit it, I thought having Ireland as play by play was going to suck, but he was really good last year! Not as good as Spero, but he and Michael were so much better than Billy Mac and Stu!

Hypothetical question -- if I got someone else who lives out of state to buy League Pass on their out of state cable/satellite account, can I watch all the games (in LA) without blackout restriction?

i loved chicky baby. used to mute nationally televised games and turn on the radio to listen to chick.

there was a tribute video from lakersnation, brought a tear to my eye.

but you have internet, you can probably find a stream of the game and watch it. as with everyone here until the other providers resolve the deal.

Id imagine the blackouts are determined by the location from which the person is accessing the service, not the address on file for the account.

As I said above, Id think that using a VPN service would work. Im not a really technical person, but its a service that makes it look like you're accessing the internet in a different location than you actually are. For example, I used one when I was overseas and at the time Netflix service wasn't available outside the US. After using the VPN service, as far as Netflix was concerned I was in Miami, not 1000+ miles outside of the US, so I was able to watch movies.

I dont see why you couldn't do the same thing and "pretend" to be in Miami so that your Laker games aren't blacked out, but to be fair I haven't done it in over a year.

I thought that way for the 40+ years I've been a Laker diehard too until I boycotted Saperstern last year and only watched a handful of postseason games, and none regular seas. 25-30 sounds about right until April.

And I do have TWC.

Well, missing a lot of games last year wasn't missing much since the team was mediocre and it was a 62 game season only and we pretty much knew going in we were 2nd round fodder at best. THIS season though, I don't want to miss a single minute of a single game, this team is going to be awesome. Last year regular season games were just entertainment as usual, but not tuning into playoff games, you just saved yourself some time and heartbreak if you truly believed in the team. Again though, this year, I anticipate a completely different situation.

The expectation was the same last year as this, in my opinion. I expect 16 wins in the postseason.

Well if you honestly expected that last season good for you, I've seen enough championship teams to know that team didn't have 'it' last year pretty early on, but I certainly can't say you're wrong for being optimistic.

^^ Yeah, I'm upset at missing what looks like at least the pre-season, Weezy. I'm gearing up for a very frustrating month. My only consolation is that all my other Laker watching friends are in the same boat. But then the bad part of that is I have nowhere to go to watch games if DirecTV doesn't make a deal in time for the regular season. :bang:

Here's hoping they get this thing ironed out ASAP.
