CNBC's Darren Rovell broke it down on Mason and Ireland.
- The current deal they are on with FSN West pays them $30 million per year
- FSN West's maximum offer was $75 million per year
- This deal with TWC is for $150 million per year.
- This new deal is $60 million MORE a year than what the Yankees make with YES Network.

Except for the rare ABC broadcast every now and then, pretty much.

Hold on a second, so is this going to be like a basic cable channel like fsn? I mean will this new channel be like channels 1-70, or do you have to have advanced cable packages? And what if you don't have TWC, you still get games right?
Every time I begin to ask, "Is he really as great as I think he is?" ...He proves that he is.
Every time I begin to wonder...He proves it...That is why I won't lose hope in him.
You know who I am talking about.

so if I have Verizon FIOS, i'm out of luck? If Verizon doesn't pick up any of the channels, i'll pretty much be like a non-Californian only able to watch the Lakers on ABC, ESPN, TNT, or NBATV?

Verizon can carry the channel. But they have to order it from TWC.

This could be incredible news. I live here in Wailea, Maui, and I always miss Laker away games. Sure, I get to hear the games on my iphone, but it isn't the same. I would probably assume with how many Laker fans that there are, that DirecTV would be forced to make a deal with them. They have no choice but to. If DirectTV can get this, this is some of the best news I have heard in along time. The only aspect I have been dissapointed about in living here in Hawaii is missing Laker away games. Looks like that isn't going to happen anymore. :jam2: Please God let DirectTV work out a deal.

i'm actually glad the lakers won't be broadcasted on fox anymore, i never liked their HDTV signals and was always very blurry compared to that of TNT. hopefully TWC doesn't get cheap to save a few dollars and use the same type of frequencies to deliver the game.

I wonder if they will make this available internationally , its only one channel so it should be easy now not having to deal with fox and kcal.

Not true...

Will I have to get Time Warner Cable to watch the Lakers?

No, while the new regional sports networks that will carry the Lakers games will certainly be carried by Time Warner Cable, the channels will be made available to all satellite, cable and telco distributors in the Lakers’ territory, which includes all of Southern California, Nevada and Hawaii.

This is wonderful news. Now if only we can get DirectTV to finally get their HDTivo recorder out, I will have died and gone to heaven. The only team I really care about is the Lakers(and the Angels and Chargers, once playoffs happen). Looks like I'm going to get it here in Hawaii. Thank you, Jesus :jam2:

^ Its hardly going to be something that breaks the bank, but I understand how it is hard of many people, but it won't affect it that much. I have no problem paying extra as I can now get all Laker games here in Hawaii, and I can listen to the games from my iphone while I drive here. God, I ove technology

I hope if it is a paid channel it would be something like 2 or 3 bucks a month. I don't want to acquire the whole "sports package" because besides of exclusively the Lakers I only watch soccer and the occasional ppv box fight.
As good as anybody, much much better than most.

^^^ well as it is you can only watch road games without cable/satellite and thats really not the way to go if you are a huge Laker fan. you could probably do without them (or at least watch online) if you are ok with just Kcal 9

I'll pay whatever needs to be paid to watch my team, but this seems like an insane deal for the Buss family, so I can't be upset.

Simply too much cash to turn down. We all know how Buss operates, so this can only help the team.

Bump. Now the deal is up to $5 billion for 25 years.

Question though. Can we throw said money at players?

Lakers will be paying a good portion of that to the small market owners who think that it's the Lakers' responsibility to subsidize their poor talent management and fiscal decision making skills.

Um... not legally. You can only offer what you have to offer under the rules, in our case the mini MLE and the minimum. All the 5 billion would mean is that maybe they'd be more willing to pay the luxury tax for a winnig team.
