FS San Diego now has a Wiki page complete w/ logo:

http://en.wikipedia....ports_San_Diego


That logo appears to have been created by a Wikipedia user, rather than coming from any official source.

Obviously (since it's based on all the other Fox Sports logos), I'd say it has a very good chance of turning out to be accurate, but for now, I think its presence on Wikipedia shouldn't be taken as an indicator of anything.

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!


It could be that because FS San Diego will carry the same programing as Prime Ticket until other agreements can be signed that cable subs will get a 7/24 channel (because they don't have Prime Ticket in San Diego) and Satellite subs will get a part time channel just for the games.
List is getting short….FMC HD, ID HD, Sundance HD, and Encore HD Channels.

I get FS West and Prime Ticket in San Diego. Angels and Dodgers games are blacked out.
It's only tv!

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


Directv zip code tool says



FS West HD (Ch. 692) - HD Available

Los Angeles Kings (HD Available)

Los Angeles Lakers (HD Available)

Prime Ticket HD (Ch. 694) - HD Available

Anaheim Ducks (HD Available)

Los Angeles Clippers (HD Available)
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

You must be a time warner sub then. IIRC Cox had a big fight with Fox over Prime ticket.

What is the status of Fox Sports San Diego? When will Fox Sports San Diego go on the air to air the padres games on tv? Also will Directv carry the channel?

This is what's known so far. TV deal still needs to be approved by MLB, but there will likely be an interim deal in place until the long-term deal is approved. Everything with the Padres contract with FOX is tied into the impending sale of the team. Who knows if DirecTV will carry the channel, but I'm sure it was probably part of FOX's recent deal with DirecTV.

That's the thing that worries me about fox sports san diego is it not being carried by Directv. Because if you remember when the Padres games on channel 4 where on Directv they only showed up on the extra innings channel and not a channel of it's own. Hopefully that will change with fox sports san diego.

No matter what happens with the sale of the ballclub, the TV deal is in place. And I think DirecTV will carry the channel. I just can't see DirecTV passing up the opportunity to finally compete with Cox Cable.

They will probably lose fox sports west in all of this on Directv - since it appears that the new FS San Diego will offer the LA area teams that are not subject to san diego blackouts in their programming.

Lose why when it seems like it will be like the other areas where a new FSN feed shows one team with the older main feed filling time.

On directv you may get more then what you get with cable as you should get all games that are part of your market. Now on cable you may get the SD team on the main FSN channel with the other in area TEAM pushed to a alt channel.
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

I think DirecTV is simply going to add fsn sd as a part time rsn and it will only lite up for padres games, and everything else will stay the same since all their other programing on that channel sounds like it's just going to be duplicate of what is already on another station and available to that area. I think the local teams in la for NHL and Nba both claim sd as their home markets as well.

looks like the last thing were all waiting on is for MLB to approve the new TV deal.

That's because Cox had exclusivity on I and wouldn't distribute to Uverse, Dish, Directv,etc

Although SateliteRacer isn't allowed to confirm/deny it, I believe DirecTV will carry Fox Sports San Diego when it launches in early march.
[Disclaimer] The definition of "soon" is based solely on DirecTV's interpretation of the word, and all similarities with dictionary definitions of the word "soon" are purely coincidental and should not be interpreted as a time frame that will come to pass within a reasonable amount of time.

it will probably be announced within the next few weeks. I believe the last step everyone is waiting on is for MLB to approve the deal. That is probably expected within next 2 weeks.

I believe 694 will be the new FS San Diego channel when it's announced.
