Time Warner Cable and AT&T customers in San Diego that were hoping to catch the Padres on Opening Day next week should start making alternative plans because Fox Sports San Diego announced Thursday a deal isn’t likely prior to next week:
Despite our best efforts, we do not expect to have an agreement with Time Warner and AT&T by Opening Day.
We have offered Time Warner and AT&T very fair rates that are consistent with the terms that Cox and DIRECTV have agreed to. Time Warner has not even responded to our most recent proposal.
Unfortunately for Padres fans who subscribe to Time Warner and AT&T, they should explore alternatives for watching the Padres on Opening Day.
DirecTV and Cox Communications are the only two cable providers that currently have a deal with Fox Sports San Diego.
