This is already the case in the New York DMA ...where DirecTV is charging the $3 fee because it has to carry the expensive team-specific channel YES. (Yankees Entertainment and Sports)
In LA, the new channel created by Time Warner will primarily broadcast only LA Laker games.
If you're not a sports fan, the clear option is Dish Network. The pricing is cheaper there because they won't carry either of these networks, MSG network, or SportsNet New York.
