Why do you think the odds are longer?


DIRECTV would be hard pressed to carry neither channel, but they didn't see much loss not carrying the pac12, and with so many games on national carriers, the incentive is really small for them to fold to carry a channel that really isn't having much affect. If they couldn't have gotten the Lakers channel, then the pac12 channel may have helped save some losses due to not having that channel. Just me guessing....

lol this great news for all SoCal fans! I am legitmately surprised they reached a deal with the way things were going but I should've guessed they weren't testing the channel for nothing. Lakers just need to start winning now haha...

Now D* can focus on getting us H2 in HD and all the other HD VOD channels in HD! All I want for X-mas...

Choice package and above will receive TWC.


As for streaming, I believe that is part of the deal as well, though I don't know how fast that will be ready to go.

Excellent news. Right now, the only company that has streaming is Time Warner Cable. Charter and the others don't have logins yet, so I am guessing it may be a while. Thanks for all the info!

Glad the Laker fans are getting some love, now lets let DirecTV work on getting CSN Houston so I can watch the Rockets!

I wonder if they are going to include the Lakers channel in the current package, or do we need to call and subscribe to it.
