    Interesting the tag in the guide says it's in "HD 1080p" (which should mean 1080p/24 Hz of course).

    But it's being received in standard 1080i/30 Hz.

    And yes I have the 1080p pass-through resolution option checked in the display settings ....

    Just amazing how the LA media in particular hasn't said a word about this apparently hugh breakthrough after all these years of covering this acrimonious impasse with the other MSOs.

    Especially between SNLA and DIRECTV ....

    And boy, ... what great and ironic timing too. What-with no Dodger games to show right now due to COVID-19 ... lol ...

    Wow! Yes, I haven't seen any news about this anywhere else, including on the other sports media site I frequent.
    Never thought I'd see the day.

    Happy to see that we're able to see Sportsnet LA in the Sports Pack without it getting blacked out like Marquee Network was blacked out in the Sports Pack.

    This shows how crappy it was for Sinclair to treat Marquee unlike any other RSN we had ever gotten.

    Kudos to DTV for not letting the Sinclair practice extend to the other RSN's, like Sportsnet LA now.

    Well I think with the whole COVID-19 coverage is taking priority over this. But it is nice to see it added. Hopefully we’ll see baseball again soon. Maybe we’ll see The Pac 12 Network one day.

    Not sure what you were expecting when you posted at 6:13 A.M. before anyone put out an official announcement. I assume any reporters who had once been regularly covering this story were, after all this time, no longer calling Spectrum and DirecTV every week to see if anything had changed. (And I suspect that even if they'd called yesterday, they wouldn't have gotten anything specific out of a source.)

    Looks like the L.A. Times's story was posted at 10:05 A.M., which seems reasonable. Dodgers TV blackout ends: Spectrum deal puts SportsNet LA on AT&T platforms

    My fear when it comes to the Sinclair RSNs that what happened with YouTube TV, as in limited footprints, will come to pass in the next round of negotiations with DirecTV and/or cable.
    For instance, STO is only seen on YouTube TV in the Cleveland DMA. Columbus, Erie, Toledo and Youngstown, all of which are within the Indians' TV territory, are out of luck.
    Fox Sports Ohio isn't available on YouTube TV in the Toledo DMA. I've heard that's also the case down around Huntington, West Virginia. If so, that's garbage. If these RSNs don't cover their full footprints, affected viewers will have little to no legal recourse for watching the local teams they have the right to see.

    I was referring to beforehand when the test feeds for SNLA first went up as reported on Edgecutter about two weeks ago.

    Thought for sure with the forum chatter that created there, here, on satelliteguys, etc., would have been picked on and reported at least by those like Swanni ....

    Perhaps the usual suspects (rumor spreaders) were distracted - or after all these years they have given up hope.
    I suppose the addition of this channel proves anything is possible.

    Normal news channels seem to have done a good job of spreading the message once the channel became active.
    The world is a little distracted at the moment.

    I personally assumed that it was for the league pass games since they still do those for our of market areas all along.

    And Swanni? Really?

    And to be fair the other added channel (Newsmax) isn't really a big deal. I still hope eventually DirecTV might try to add a few more international English news channels just to beef up the offerings but... I'm not holding my breath. Same with getting the C-SPAN's in HD. Not holding my breath.

    if sports where to come back how meny temp over flow channels will needed if say you had to have an NHL, NBA, and MLB game live on your local RSN at the same time?

    Also maybe FOX showing MLB and NFL at the same time?

    There are two solutions to this problem. Actually just one.

    A real Commissioner.

    INFORM the teams that ridiculous over-claims to places where they simply are not the home team have been cancelled.

    INFORM the teams that deals which only cover part of their territory are not in the best interests of baseball, and that any deal with any provider for an RSN will cover the entire claim, or is void.

    Leadership. Not seen in baseball for almost 30 years.

    I agree. The blackout should match the in market coverage.
