    The latest rumor is that FSN is expected to announce the new Padres TV deal by the All Star Break in mid July.:)

    they would have to create FSN san diego, If they put it on FS prime ticket to start, i wonder what happens when dodgers come on. MLB rules doesn't allow dodgers to broadcast in SD unless they change it.

    They can always do a regional parttime channel like they do in Ohio and Wisconsin.

    The Ducks and Clippers broadcast into San Diego through Prime Ticket, same with the Lakers and Kings on FS West (for now anyway). Both the Angels and Dodgers are blacked out in San Diego and Imperial Counties and the same with Padre games north of Camp Pendleton.

    FS San Diego subfeed may happen on the interim, I doubt it would become permanent unless the Dodgers somehow remain with Fox Sports. But the signs are pointing to the Dodgers joining the Lakers/TWC venture. Frank McCourt pretty much had the same idea regarding separate RSNs for English and Spanish for L.A., then the fit hit the shan for him.

    Or the padres could end up on the twc channel.. You never know, but I suspect they are after the dodgers first...

    All we all have to hope for is McCourt is tossed to the sea in the next couple weeks so things can take shape over the rest of the year.

    Or the Padres could end up with FOX, according to already posted rumors. No one knows what will happen with the Dodgers, so any talk of a deal with TWC is premature and baseless.

    It would be nice if the Padres' games were shown throughout its territory, which includes a chunk of Phoenix and Tucson. Even Cox didn't show Padres games throughout the Padres market, even though it is the provider in those cities.

    July 20 we will know if mccourt will remain in control or if MLB will have control over dodgers.

    Let say this.

    MLB takes dodgers, and then puts them up for sale. If and when a new owner is selected. Who would he want to have as the team's TV provider.

    Also could Fox sports make the same offer to the new owner, Selig would approve because he would use it for the team and not own personal gain.

    then again the new owner could select a different provider IE TWC.


    i wonder if Fox would then offer Prime ticket or West fully to San Diego.

    even though Kings still are on Fox, not sure how long they are on

    Not at all baseless. It's no secret that twcwants a baseball team to share with the lakers, and the dodgers would be perfect.

    And it also makes no difference who owns the team, I don't see any way twc doesn't bid on the dodgers once the exclusive window closes... And fox may not pony up... They sure where arrogant about the lakers negotiations, thinking they where the only ones who had a chance and that caused them to loose the lakers.

    And twc can offer more than fox, unless fox is going to add another rsn for our market, and in Spanish, like twc...

    giants, a's, padres, angels, dodgers, dbacks 6 mlb teams are considered to be in vegas local market. with all that, mlb extra innings should be free.

    Nope. Put in 85310 or 85345 in MLB.tv's blackout tool and you'll see. I don't know the exact boundaries, but a good chunk of of West Valley in Phoenix is in Padres territory.

    I live in Vegas. Went to the first Padre game ever so been around a lot. Here, not matter what they say, we get no D-Backs, No Giants, No A's and certainly no Cox-Padres be they on MLB, Comcast, Espn or whatever. It's subscribe to overpriced, really inferior Cox or you get no Padres. I knew that when I took the plunge to DTV. But I want the Mtn and the sports channels and Cox made no deals.

    So it will be nice when the deal ends. However, if the Pads go to Prime Ticket in SD we still won't see them since this is Dodgerville. McCourt or not. No good unless there is a separate channel. Perhaps this is why there still has been no announcement from the Cheapskates, err Padres, on a new TV deal. If Cox does not pick up the new channel it will be a boondoggle for DTV for new subscriptions. Lucky dogs. At least they will get Sunday Ticket too. :hurah:

    I wonder if FOX will retain Dick Enberg as the PBP announcer? I've always liked him and enjoy his broadcasts when I can catch them via MLBEI.

    So will they be on Fox Sports West, Prime Ticket, or another new one starting up? If they are on West or Prime Ticket, since they are LA market RSNs, will those in LA be able to see the Padres games?

    My semi-educated guess is that Fox will create a new part-time "Fox Sports San Diego" or "Prime Ticket San Diego" feed for Padres games, which would be a part-time channel on DirecTV and would preempt the regular feed of either channel on San Diego cable systems. So in L.A., you'd only get the Padres broadcasts with an MLB Extra Innings subscription, same as today.

    Yep, since MLB is not like the NFL (L.A. being the Chargers secondary home TV market), you'll need MLB EI to watch the Padres in the L.A. market.
