Well, over in the DirecTV forum is a thread Time Warner buys LA Lakers RSN rights, must provide to DBSs which I guess is a logical forum location? In any event, the LA Times notes: The article notes that TWC's first stop will be DirecTV. Then it notes: I can understand why Time Warner Cable did this. It's time for somebody in the cable/satellite business to push back at Fox Sports RSN's and someday ESPN. Wonder what Charlie will do after contemplating the implications of the change?
