You may soon be able to watch Dodgers games on TV for the first time in a year. Due to a standoff between Time Warner Cable—which owns the Dodgers' channel, SportsNet LA—and nearly every other TV provider, 70 percent of Angelenos have been unable to watch the Dodgers on TV. Charter Communications CEO Tom Rutledge said today that the company plans to "get the Dodgers on," the L.A. Times reports.

"We want the Dodgers on every outlet and we are committed to making that happen," he said.

Up until this announcement, Charter—along with a number of other cable companies—had elected not to carry the Dodgers' SportsNet LA. However, Rutledge said that Charter subscribers in Glendale, Malibu, Burbank, Long Beach and other areas will soon begin getting the channel. Charter will also be reviewing SportsNet LA's finances.

Charter also announced their purchase of Time Warner Cable for $56.7 billion today.
