And here is the latest: http://www.signonsan...-principle-fsn/

Get ready for the Padres on Fox Sports San Diego.

A source familiar with the situation Thursday confirmed the Padres and Fox Sports Regional Networks are very close to an agreement in principle for a new network called Fox Sports San Diego to carry Padres games beginning with the 2012 season.

Hmmm, when I called and ordered/paid for MLB EI he was telling me some teams they were not offering due to the channel not being available. I believe the Padres were one because it struck me as odd since I had seen them on EI for years. Perhaps this was why. I guess at this time they don't plan to carry this network.

They will probably carry FSN San Diego by the time baseball season starts. Since the new Padres ownership still hasn't been officially approved by MLB, there is no public announcement yet.

I love sports and watch them daily but how much networks are paying to obtain broadcast rights are out of control and really scary for satellite/cable subscribers. Our tv bills are just going to get higher and higher. I'm usually not an advocate for our government stepping in and regulating things of this nature but something needs to be done. It's getting way out of control. Sorry to rant. :)

I am SOOOO happy for the Padres. They deserve this. 40+ years of financial hardship... anything helps us. No more fire sales!!! Whooo Hooo!

(Although I will forever thank the fire sale of Gary Sheffield for Trevor...)

Well, I'm happy for those in San Diego, Vegas, and Southwestern Arizona that will be released from the shackles of Cox Cable after all these years. And for the rest of America that subscribe to MLB EI that won't have to put up with the marginal in-game graphics from 4SD.

I hope one day the same will happen in Philly.

Fenix, I see your point, but....

Until the day comes where we do refuse to pay, you are seeing capitalism in its rawest form.

For example: Some of the sports fans in Orange County who may complain about their bills are some of the very same people who would complain if the Angels did NOT sign Albert Pujols.

Those complaints are incompatible.

And having been in the telecom business for many years, believe me, the absolute last thing you want is the government sticking its big fat nose in this.

Cheers.

I don't want to be negative, but rumor has it that MLB is concerned that the new ownership would use money from this TV deal to pay off the purchase of the ballclub.:nono2:

As a long-time Padres fan, I hope this is not true!

Now the questions is: when will DirecTV add FSN San Diego? At launch or later?

with Non-Padres programming before and after that date is expected to be a combination of national FSN telecasts as well as games now seen on Fox Sports Prime Ticket involving the Los Angeles Clippers, Anaheim Ducks and various colleges including UCLA and USC.

Maybe it will be a Sub Feed on Directv
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

Or it might be on channel 694, thus explaining why Prime Ticket was moved to channel 693.

From the above story, it sounds as if Cox Cable will carry FSN San Diego at launch. No mention though in the article if it will be a full-time channel at launch. I guess we'll know for sure very soon!

Slightly unrelated question, isn't SD part of the LA Kings territory as well? Would SD still get FSW for Kings games?

Yes, only sports to be blackout would be the Dodgers/Angels. Lakers, Clippers, Kings, Ducks, etc will still be available. At least until next year, they will have to make room for the Lakers new sport network.
It's only tv!
