Thanks, but no thanks. I heard the Dodgers contract is up on Nov.28th with Fox. If TWC gets the Dodgers then we'll talk. In the meantime i'm perfectly happy watching the Lakers online as well as watching other sports on my HDTV on FSW, ESPN, NBC, CBS, ABC, TNT, TBS, NBATV, NHLTV, MLBTV, NFLTV, etc.
Not quite.... the contract lasts till November 2013, however from November 28th 2012 - a full year before the contract ends - negotiations are allowed to take place.
Fox got a 6-week exclusivity that began on October 15th, in which they can try to re-negotiate the current contract
Depending on how things go, it could happen that Fox DOES come to a deal before November 28th, and it could also happen that TWC doesn't come to a deal until November 27th 2013. Hell, it could even happen that a Fox re-negotiation fails in the exclusivity period, but they still manage to come to terms in the summer of 2013.
In any case, Dodgers Baseball will be on Fox Sports through the entire 2013 season.
