SportsNet LA announced its full slate of programming to fill in the hours between Dodger games and replays of Dodger games.
“Access SportsNet: Dodgers” is the signature evening program; details about the show were released 10 days ago.
“Leadoff LA,” “Dodgers Clubhouse,” “Connected With,” “Talkin’ Blue,” “Dodgermentary,” “Timeless Dodgers” and “Dodgers Squeeze Play” will fill out the network’s lineup. All are set to air starting Feb. 25. DodgerInsider.com has a brief description of each show.
Team president Stan Kasten is proud of the fact that the network is a Dodgers-only affair, but how long will that be the case?
“I think it works for now because that’s what our customers seem to be wanting,” Kasten said. “I don’t know what the future holds; I just don’t. I wouldn’t rule anything in or out, but we really like that we are the first team-owned network anywhere that is dedicated to this team only.”
The company line (and hashtag) is for non-Time Warner subscribers to demand their providers pay up to carry SportsNet LA. So far that hasn’t worked.
So, will fans have the alternative of watching the games via webcast on their computers?
“The question of streaming is an open one,” Kasten said. “I think that they will happen. It’s not in place now. We don’t have anything to say about it now.”
