I have DirecTV, i also wouldn't pay for the Dodgers, why? Because i live in LA and can watch every game for free on my HDTV courtesy of TWC. I watched the Dodgers live from Australia this past weekend. It's the same broadcast as TWC.
There is an easy way to maintain DirecTV (which i love) AND watch live Dodger games here in LA.
Huh? I don't understand this. Do you also have cable TV from TWC? I have their internet and don't get any channels. Are you sure you weren't watching on MLB Network?
