FEELING ANTSY: In California, Kevin Ding writes TWC is the “only cable or satellite distributor we know right now [that] will have Lakers games” when TWC SportsNet launches on Oct. 1. In addition to DirecTV and Dish, subs with AT&T U-Verse, Verizon FiOS, Cox Cable, Charter Communications or other providers “could rightly feel antsy.” Lakers VP/PR John Black said, “We would hope the fans have confidence in our new broadcast partner -- as we do -- that they will get the deals done and everyone enjoys what will be a better product than ever before” (ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER, 8/29).
