Re: [TWC] New National Time Warner Sports Network---LA Lakers

Tonight's Laker's Preseason Game is Blacked Out due to the territorial exclusivity of the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets in our region.
So, this new sports network is virtually useless.

All professional sports have blackout rules.

Not for the 18 million people living in Los Angeles... I don't get why you expected a regional sports network to be different than any other. This is not ESPN, NBC Sports, or any other national network where they have the rights to show games nationally. They only have the rights to show the games in the Los Angeles TV market.

But it's not a regional network. It's a national network with a focus on a single region.

If it where strictly a regional network why put it nationally when they started up or are planning to start regional networks all over their footprint.

Yes it is. Much like the YES Network, which is available nationally, but only New York gets the live games. I guess maybe there needs to be a different term to distinguish between regional programming and regional distribution for channels like these that aren't regional for both, but aren't truly national networks.

They put it nationally so they make more money. But why anyone outside of New York would want YES, or anyone outside of LA would want TWC Sportsnet LA is beyond me.

I do understand it is a regional sports network for Southern California especially with the Lakers. Since Lakers games in New York State are blacked out, what interest does it have for subscribers in our region?
Virtually a useless channel in upstate New York.

all other programming besides Lakers games, Galaxy Games, and Sparks games. They have a lot of shows that are classic games and even had surfing contests shown so it is not the Lakers channels as many have suggested.

Does anyone have problem viewing channels 403 and 481? I have no reception to these channels. I have rebooted my cable box twice after speaking to customer support. They said to wait 24 hours and then contact them again as it may take some time for the reception to kick in. It's the 13th of October. It should have kicked in by now no?

You do have an HD box and are able to get other HD channels in the 400 range? Are you able to get the SD equivalents (43 and 48)?

all channels work fine, including the HD channels on my HD box. The only channels not working are the TWCS and TCWCS HD and the deportes channel (481).
