You Can Now Watch The Dodgers On DirecTV (Spectrum And AT&T Struck A Deal)
Dodgers games are coming to more SoCal homes thanks to a deal between Spectrum Networks and AT&T.
Spectrum announced Wednesday it reached an agreement with AT&T to carry SportsNet LA, the Dodgers’ regional sports network, on its video platforms, including DirecTV, AT&T TV, U-Verse TV and AT&T Now. Customers in Southern California, Las Vegas and Hawaii will have access to all live game coverage in SportsNet LA once the MLB season is cleared to begin.
“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,” Stan Kasten, president & CEO of the Los Angeles Dodgers, said in a statement. “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.”
Starting today, SportsNet LA is appearing on DirecTV Channel 690, and U-Verse TV customers can now watch on channel 780 (SD) and 1780 (HD). The network is scheduled to air beginning Apr. 8 for AT&T and AT&T Now customers.
For the moment, baseball is on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, but meanwhile you can watch the channel's original shows and studio programming. On Apr. 2, the network will air a full day of episodes highlighting the best games of the 2019 season.
“Our city has the best sports fans in the world, and they want to enjoy all of the excitement and tradition that Dodger games bring to Los Angeles," L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti said in a statement, adding that the deal will "give more Angelenos the chance to cheer for our favorite team all the way to the World Series."
