Spectrum has announced a carriage deal that will make SportsNet LA, the Dodgers’ regional sports network, to AT&T subscribers. The deal includes rights for AT&T TV, DIRECTV, U-verse TV and AT&T TV Now to air coverage in Southern California, Las Vegas, and Hawaii beginning today.
AT&T TV and AT&T TV NOW subscribers will also begin receiving Spectrum SportsNet starting April 8.
“This agreement underscores our commitment to provide all Dodgers fans the opportunity to enjoy our award-winning programming and live game coverage,” said Dan Finnerty, senior vice president, Spectrum Networks. “Working together with AT&T, we were able to reach an agreement to offer the region’s most popular teams to local fans across AT&T’s video platforms.”
While sports fans will have to wait for the MLB season to start up before catching live Dodgers games, SportsNet LA is currently airing original shows and recent games. Viewers can watch documentaries including “Dodgermentary” and “Backstage: Dodgers” now.
“As anxious as we all are for the ongoing pandemic to end and for the 2020 season to begin, we now have even more reason to be excited because this agreement will make Dodger baseball games and programming available for our fans on Spectrum, AT&T TV, DIRECTV, U-verse TV, and AT&T TV NOW,” said Dodger president & CEO Stan Kasten. “I want to thank AT&T and Spectrum Networks for coming together on this agreement. We are eager to get this season started once it is deemed safe to do so everywhere.”
