Directv to carry TWC Sportsnet after they make nice with Time Warner Cable

The wait is finally over for the large Lakers fan base that were left out in the cold due to the inability of Directv and Time Warner Cable to come to terms on an agreement to carry the new Lakers stations, TWC Sportsnet and TWC Deportes.

 LA Times reports that the deal is being finalized and should be in place by the time the next Lakers game on Friday against the Phoenix Suns is played.

Time Warner and Cox Cable agree on Sportsnet deal

Cox Communications agreed to a deal to carry the new Lakers stations, TWC Sportsnet and TWC Deportes, with Time Warner Cable it was announced yesterday. That leaves just two holdouts, Directv and Dish Network; those two holdouts mean that over 2 million of their subscribers are still unable to watch Lakers games.

Time Warner had already inked deals to carry the new Lakers’ stations with Verizon, AT&T, Bright House and Charter Cable.

There are no updates from either the Time Warner or Directv and Dish side on the progression of their negotiations, other they are still ongoing. So us remaining Lakers fans that are still in the dark continue to wait.

Updated list of bars with Time Warner Cable showing the Lakers game

Due to the continued stalemate between Time Warner Cable and the major pay TV carriers in Los Angeles, the new Lakers‘ station TWC Sportsnet and TWC Deportes, which have exclusive rights to show all Lakers game this year, the only way Lakers fan will be able to see the Lakers this year is by either subscribing to Time Warner Cable or going to an establishment that has Time Warner Cable. The major problem is that most bars and restaurants that center their business around showing sports programming have Directv. Raining3s.com identified a need to put a list together of bars and restaurants that both subscribe Time Warner Cable and will show Lakers games for us Lakers fans.
