SportsNet L.A. Goes Live Today, Still Seeking Distribution Deals
Published February 25, 2014
The "issue holding up distribution is price." There is "plenty of time" for TWC to strike deals before the MLB season, but many distributors "seem prepared to go without ... at least under the terms currently offered" (L.A. TIMES, 2/25). A source said that TWC is seeking $4.50-5.00 a month per subscriber, but that the "fees rapidly climb in subsequent years." SportsNet L.A. will become the eighth RSN in Southern California (Palm Springs DESERT SUN, 2/25).
The L.A. DAILY NEWS runs an FAQ about the launch of the RSN.
