    If that was the case, we would have seen this channel go into test in previous years. We didn't.

    I think it is reasonable to assume there are negotiations going on that are going well enough Directv has put the channel into test. Yes, they can pull it without ever making it live as they did with Pac 12, but AFAIK that's the only case I know of where they did that. So odds are good this channel will be added to Directv by the end of the month.

    Maybe Sinclair's travails with the former FSN channels caused Spectrum to re-evaluate their opinion of the value of the network, and are willing to cut Directv a better deal than they've offered in the past?

    DirecTV has used backhaul feeds for LA Galaxy games broadcast on Spectrum Sportsnet LA in the past on the MLS Direct Kick package. This tells me no more of those once DirecTV carries Spectrum Sportsnet LA full time.

    Well SportsNet LA started 6 years ago, I wonder if the current contracts are coming up for renewal so they’re looking at trying to get on more providers? I wonder if AT&T is trying to get it on both AT&T TV and D*?

    SportsNet LA needs to pay for the $$$$ they shelled out to the team.

    Ummm that deal to create SportsNet LA is a 25 year deal it won't come up for renewal until 2039 IIRC.

    Spectrum SportsNet LA ATT may want to hold till baseball starts up again. Or they can hit people in a LA with an $14.99+ RSN fee with no sports

    Going pass on viewing. With Amazon, Netflix, Hoopla, Kanopy, and IMDB streaming will keep me busy on the couch, NOT. Doing lots of walking in my neighborhood.

    Don't think Movie Channel is included; Message expressly says channels 545-552; that does not include the Movie Channel

    The Movie Channel (All 3) and Flix are viewable with the free preview, so they are included.
