    I think the new TV deal is already approved. The holdup is that the new ownership hasn't been officially approved by MLB. But nonetheless, an official announcement should be made on (or around) March 5.

    And here is another update on Fox Sports San Diego: http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2012/feb/27/fox-sports-sd-hires-studio-host/

    Cox Cable already has a deal with FS San Diego! Come on DirecTV, get a deal done SOON!

    There may not be a deal required. Could be Fox already has a blanket contract for up to xx many channels.

    If anything, San Diego subs will lose Prime Ticket not FS West.

    I doubt they will loose anything. I think this station will be the part time game only station that is getting picked up.

    That would mean no replays, like some places are dealing with.

    looks like march 5 will be the launch date, so I'd expect directv to launch when the channel does.

    Could be. Looks like on Cable it's going to be full time, but that doesn't mean it has to be full time on Dish or Direct.

    i think it will be full for padres games, after that it probably will put on what other FSN's have for programing.

    I heard that if the dodgers move to that lakers channel then there may not be a need for Prime Ticket any more. So it may just be come a sub feed / alt feed of FSN West.

    Any way say the MLB blackout rules change then that may lead to a lot of FSN feeds changing as well.

    That may very well be possible. In addition, I am not sure how many USC/UCLA games will still broadcast on FS West after the move to the Pac-12 Network. Thus FSW may just double down on the Clippers, Kings, Ducks, and San Diego State on top of the Angels and Padres.

    http://www.foxsportssandiego.com/ updated their website very very slightly as they now have added a sports scoreboard at the top of their webpage. It doesn't have the universal look as other Fox Sports Net websites, but I think they will in time.

    FSN will still carry some Pac-12 basketball games on a national basis, but not any Pac-12 football.

    will it have it's own launch or just start mirroring FSN West / prime ticket?

    Cox Las Vegas has both + a game only feed of SD4.

    also the new Lakers channel may take teams from FSN West and Prime Ticket.

    So after some time you may just have FSN west + a over flow and the SD feed that mirrors sports from FSN WEST.

    The lakers channel has already taken the galaxy. I think the only major thing left for them to take is the dodgers. I don't think they will go after a hockey team unless fox shuts down one of the local RSNs. And I don't see that happening unless they absolutely have too.
