Did You Miss the Lakers Game? You Aren’t Alone

The Los Angeles Lakers opened the 2012-13 preseason on Sunday night and unless you have Time Warner Cable, you were out of luck.

A week after Time Warner Cable SportsNet launched, it has yet to secure deals with DirecTV, Dish, AT&T and Verizon, leaving many Southern California residents without their Lakers.

Unlike the dispute between the Pac-12 Network and DirecTV, there will be serious backlash if Time Warner doesn’t start coming to terms with the other local cable providers by Opening Night on Oct. 30.

“We expect that Time Warner will reach deals with other TV providers in the near future, but I cannot give you an estimate on when,” Lakers spokesman John Black told NBC4 in an email.
