Sports Networks Update
Sept 15, 2014
We’re glad to see Time Warner Cable and the Dodgers have finally done the right thing and are now letting fans see the rest of the season on local broadcast. While six games on local broadcast is hardly the same as the 50 in-season games customers had available for free last year, we find the trend encouraging and hope Time Warner Cable avoids alienating fans again for the 2015 season.
Keeping You Connected to Your Local Stations
When disputes arise with local stations, they are the only ones who can decide whether or not to remain in your channel lineup. DIRECTV cannot and will not remove any broadcast network.
DIRECTV wants to make sure you always have a front row seat. Whether you’re the most loyal booster, a casual fan, or maybe not all that interested in sports, you must always have a choice over what teams you might want to pay to watch.
“Free channels (Broadcast) should not have the right to charge, and definitely not be able to hold their customers’ signal hostage to increase their profits.” — Hector
“Times are difficult for so many viewers who can only afford the entertainment of their TV and to do this out of greed is disgusting.” — Sherry
“Local channels should always be available on ALL content providers regardless of any renegotiation. Holding loyal viewers hostage is the same as piracy.” — Jorge
“Don’t they know we are in a tough economy? How about caring for the public? It’s just the same old greed. We have to pay to watch what was always a free local station. Just Amazing.” — Gary
“You really think if you switch that you will be protected from channel losses and rate increases? I have had two different cable providers before DIRECTV and had worse luck with them. When we switched to DIRECTV, our channel selection went up and our price dropped dramatically.” — loycust8yrs
