Per a special message on channel 693-1, Prime Ticket is moving to channel 693 on February 15. I wonder if this means they're making room for the new Padres FSN channel.

Aren't the Lakers moving to their own channel soon, too? DTV might need lots of room for all these single team channels.

Could be, I wonder of those of us in the San Diego DMA will lose FSW & PT?
I think we keep FSN West, but might lose Prime Ticket. Last I read, the Padres were the only thing going on the San Diego market channel, if it's even full time to start. If it is full time, it's supposed to be a mirror of Prime save for Padre Games...

Not to mention, I have never once seen 693 used for anything. It was always an alternate channel, just as 695 was. I hoping that they are doing this and getting rid of the alternate channels since they have never been used from the guide, and then they will have a nice place to put the lakers channels and the San Diego channel.

DTV also needs room CSN Philly and TCN Philly / CSN Philly + to be next to each other.

Also pack 12 needs the main channels + the alt's / Regional channels

The network will broadcast other Southern California teams, such as the Los Angeles Clippers and the Anaheim Mighty Ducks, which are normally shown on Fox Sports Prime Ticket. Fox Sports Prime Ticket

So will it be a sub feed? a alt feed?

Will directv make it like some of the other FSN feeds where it will be not full time?

Well, If FS retain the rights to the Dodgers then there would only be alternate feeds during baseball season. Or there may be an alternate channel just so they could accommodate all the SD college sports they wish to broadcast.

What network are you talking about? Those teams are on fsn west and pt, or local channels only. The alternate channels have never been used for any of the teams in the la dma. I fact I am not sure those channels have ever actually been turned on and haven't smply been placeholders in case a situation came up where they where needed, but it never has.

The new lakers channels will have the lakers and the galaxy, but that's all that's signed up with them so far. I suspect they may eventually land the dodgers as well, but that's about it. They won't do hockey I don't think, to many conflicts with the lakers.

Why? They currently have all seven major sports inbetween the two channels now and have never used the alternate channels, what makes you think they'd need them now that they are definitely loosing two of their teams as it is, and maybe a third at some point?

Don't forget that some games are shown on ota channels.

Ridiculous waste of bandwidth if this is a 24/7 channel. Hopefully DirecTV makes it a temp channel.

makes seem like Directv can work it like the other FSN sub feeds.

He was talking about the Time Warner Lakers channels (yes there's going to be 2 of them, English and Spanish) that are launching next season.

I'm thinking those will go to 657 and 658 to be next to the Pittsburgh RSN, IF we ever get them.

It looks like they're making room for the two new Laker RSNs, 694 and 695. The new FSN-SD could go to 691. CSN-NW could go anywhere between 688 to 690.

I still vote for game only channels though, no need for so many 24/7 RSN's.

Game only channels doesn't free up space for more hd channels, so I don't see the point in working about that.

As someone else said, we are talking about the new twc channels, which at the moment have contracts for the lakers and la galaxy, and are obviously going to be bidding like crazy for the dodgers or angels to fill out their year.
