Dodger Thoughts

Jon Weisman's outlet for dealing psychologically with the Los Angeles Dodgers, baseball and life

Dodgers’ final six regular-season games to air on local broadcast station KDOC

By Jon Weisman

The Dodgers’ final six games of the regular season — September 22-24 against San Francisco and September 26-28 against Colorado — will air on independent broadcast station KDOC, which is carried by every cable, satellite and telco provider in Southern California and can also be received over the air with an antenna.

Time Warner Cable announced today an agreement for SportsNet LA to air those games on KDOC, subject to national broadcast commitments.

KDOC can be seen on the following channels:

  • Charter: 710 high definition or 10 standard definition
  • Cox: 1012 or 12
  • AT&T U-verse: 1006 or 6
  • DirecTV: 56
  • Verizon FiOS: 506 or 6
  • Dish: 56
  • Over-the-air broadcast: 56.1

“Time Warner Cable is part of this community, and we’re Dodger fans too,” Time Warner Cable COO Dinni Jain said.  “Angelenos love their Dodgers, and we’re happy to give them a way to watch their beloved team during this pennant chase.”

Earlier this summer, Time Warner Cable offered to enter into binding arbitration to facilitate the completion of distribution deals for SportsNet LA, but potential distributors did not join in.

“Right now, we can’t change the fact that other area TV distributors won’t carry the channel, but we don’t want anyone to miss this exciting pennant run,” Jain said. “We hope everyone will tune in to KDOC and help us cheer on the Dodgers. We will continue to work on long-term agreements with other providers in the offseason.”

  1. Screw TW and the Dodgers for entering into this deal with them, i discovered another local team, the Angels.

  2. That’s nice, but the Dodgers could already have clinched the division by then, so in getting ready for the playoffs, a lot of the starters will be getting rest. Why not start now? Nothing like being 156 games late and $8 Billion short! Nice throwing the fans a bone with no meat on it.

  3. I do hope the Dodgers have clinched the division by then and do agree it would be nice to start now but regardless I am grateful to be able to watch a few of the games. They will sit a lot of the starters but the bright side we will get to watch some of the “up and comers” like Joc Pederson, Alex Guerrero, etc. Steve, I don’t think you are alone. I think a lot of people have developed a new efinity for the other “Los Angeles” team we are able to watch. Go DODGERS!!!

  4. You stabbed my heart Dodgers. Shame on you and ownership group. Lifelong Dodger fan will be enjoying Angels owning SoCal.

  5. ” we’re happy to give them a way to watch their beloved team during this pennant chase.”

    So arrogant…they are giving us a reminder of what we used to have!

  6. Doesn’t help those fans in other areas that don’t get this channel! BOOO

  7. TW Cable, sorry to say “Too little, Too Late”. Your week wristed attempt to appease the local Dodger fans, “The greatest fans on earth”…Tommy Lasorda, by releasing the last six games that may or may not have any impact on the season is a sad and falls far short for someone that claims to be “part of this community”. Where was this option at the start of the season, or anytime during the season? Why not give the local fans the availability to see all the Dodger games and charge only for the complete channel coverage for those that want it and for all outside the LA area? “Blue Heaven on earth” has been a black whole in broadcast space for all Dodger Fans.

  8. how bout the postseason???!!!!!

    • The post season will not be on the LA Sports Net (Dodger station) and will be on stations like Fox, ESPN and TNT depending on the league, day, time.

  9. but you know, now i can take it or leave at this point… who cares!
