Thats one of the reasons they went to all games being on cable is so that their entire market could have access to games. Their away games where broadcast on KCAL over the air in Los Angeles only, so over half their designated market was unable to get away games. Now they will be able to. That's assuming deals get done.

If twc can get DirecTV, then all the other local cable providers will fold easier. It also works the other way too, but since DirecTV or dish would be only one deal to make the others fall in line, I would think they'd be working hardest on the two sat providers.


Lot of IFS there. But I kind of understand the thinking behind LA's apathetic market; they all fall inline.

Well , I don't agree. The only thing the Lakers were after is $, which they already have. Regardless of where it gets shown, they've already collected.


They lakers will gain a lot more money if they have bigger distribution. And the buss family isn't like the greedy nfl owners who only care about pocketing money. They actually care about their fans. The are still a few left, but they are getting harder to find. You can tell this because of how much of the money the Lakers take in they turn right around and spend on the team. They aren't going to be making any more money in profit on this new deal for several years because of their current payroll. They went ahead and decided to spend all that extra profit this summer on the team.

Well, people will surprise you and I seriously doubt they have a say in the matter after they signed the dotted line, like I've said before.

So a $900 million franchise and their powerful lawyers would just sign it all away like that? Sure...and I've got ocean front property in Arizona.

Not even remotely plausible. They could have a chimpanzee handle the deal and even he would know better.

Well, think of the deal and any rhetoric that may come out from them as you may. A contract is a contract. And never underestimate people.

Any Interest in that ocean front property in Arizona? I also have a house in Alaska with a beautiful view of Russia available! :)

I kid! Seriously though, if there was even the slightest, tiniest sliver of a possibly that the Lakers would do that...I'd give it some thought. There isn't though. Not unless the contract was written by a delusional homeless man in the alley behind a mental institution and every single person who saw it was crazier than the last person who saw it.

Actually, the buss family already has, as i didn't expect them to spend so much! :lol:

Oh it's true, none of us have a clue what the deal with the Lakers says in terms of distribution terms. That we just don't know, and likely never will, unless they never reach any deals and the Lakers where to sue them over it. Otherwise, we will never know.

They may openly whine--and I doubt they would sue the hand that fed them regardless of what was written in the contract--but I bet secretly, or not so secretly in the future, they hope and/or tell their fans to switch if they "love" them so much.

Just like the PAC-12 network (sorry, had to throw that in).

The way I see it is how much the Lakers ownership genuinely "cares" about their fan-base is actually irrelevant.

With the NBA's new collective bargaining agreement with its murderous luxury taxes and increased revenue sharing, they absolutely need this multi-billion dollar TWC deal to survive and regularly field championship caliber teams in the future.

What, exactly, are you saying here? LA may be many things to you Cow Town denizens, but it will never be apathetic when it comes to the Lakers.

Obtuse trolling is boring, Mr. Bambler.

I would assume that BILL PLASCHKE will not be missing this game or any game because he has a seat in the press section paid for by the LA Times. Bill does not see the silver lining in this situation. People may have to buy the paper to find out what happened. lol. He is not one of my favorite panelist on Around the Horn.

Why in SD? Are you streaming and using the HDTV as a monitor?

EDIT: Just saw on another post that you have your 52" connected to your computer.

By the way, it's amazing to see how easy the shots come for the Lakers when Nash is in the game. Gonna be a great season!

Yeah, streaming, better than nothing. My computer is directly hooked up to the TV. The great thing is all i have to do is click a switch for TV (HDMI 2) or for my PC click (HDMI 1).

I would bet he has log in information for time warner cable. Which would have allowed him to view it via a computer. I didn't see the feed streamed anywhere else.

Only to time warner cable customers at this time. I would imagine other providers eventually.

There are many feeds available online by simply typing in what you want to watch and using the key words free and online. Usually requires Windows and you need to download their software. I might have watched it also on one of these sites. Not HD quality but watchable on my PC and HD monitor.

I was watching the game live on my TWC HD box down here in San Diego but when I tried to log into the twcsportsnet streaming website it was telling me I was I outside of the LA DMA viewing area :rolleyes:

Honestly their streaming site and IOS app has been horrible and very buggy since the channel launched on 10-1.

Tonight's game was being streamed on the usual bootleg sites like firstrowsports and I had access to a private ustream channel that was password protected.

TWC Sportsnets picture quality is broadcast in 1080i all the time.But tonight's game I would say the picture quality was not close to HD.But I also think considering they were playing at Fresno State's save mart college basketball arena had something to do with the poor HD picture quality.

That's interesting that you mentioned that. My brother (who also has TWC) called me at the beginning of the game and asked me what channel the HD feed was on. He said that the game he was watching was SD (even though he was tuned to the HD channel: 403)

However, the feed I was getting was a very crisp and clear picture in 1080i HD (also channel 403). Perhaps there were transmission issues with the local TWC feed he was receiving (as well as with the poster above).
