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.
