Time Warner Cable to Launch New Dodger Channel

Bloomberg News, linked here , and the Los Angeles Times, linked here, is reporting the Dodgers and Time Warner Cable have agreed to terms on a deal that will grant Time Warner Cable to broadcast Dodger games.  The current broacast rights are owned by Fox News Corp and expire after the 2013 season. 

According to Bloomberg:

"An announcement of the agreement is imminent, although no deal has been signed yet, said the people, who asked not to be named because the decision isn’t yet public. The games will be carried on a new regional sports network developed by Guggenheim Partners, which bought the Dodgers for $2.15 billion last year. Time Warner Cable will be a partner in the project and won’t own the television rights outright, the people said."

According to the LA Times:

"The Dodgers’ deal is expected to be finalized and announced Thursday. The team has not yet submitted the deal to Major League Baseball for approval, but the control of the channel is expected to rest with the Dodgers’ owners rather than with Time Warner."

True to the Blue!
