Translation please: If Korean-speaking Dodgers fans won’t have TWC, should they visit www.quieromisdodgers.com?

SportsNet LA is the exclusive new 24/7 TV network of the Los Angeles Dodgers that takes fans behind-the-scenes of the team and offers in-depth access into the organization, providing an immersive experience with never-before-seen content and thousands of hours of comprehensive Dodger programming.

The network announced today that it will launch Korean-language Secondary Audio Programming (SAP) for all live Dodger games on its air this season, a first for any Major League Baseball (MLB) team. The Dodgers have partnered with Radio Korea, the team’s Korean radio broadcast partner, to provide the service, which will start with the Dodgers’ home opener on Friday, April 4.

Radio Korea broadcasters Richard Choi and Chong Ho Yim will call the games.

“We’re so thrilled that fans can now watch our games on TV in Korean all season long,” said Stan Kasten, President and CEO, Los Angeles Dodgers. “The Dodgers have an incredibly diverse fan base, and over the past two seasons we’ve seen more and more of Los Angeles’ Korean fans come out to support Hyun-Jin Ryu. Making games available in English, Korean and Spanish on SportsNet LA lets us reach even more Dodger fans than ever before.”

“I’m happy that Korean Dodger fans will now be able to watch our games on SportsNet LA,” said Dodger Pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu.

“We are excited to be working with SportsNet LA to deliver Korean SAP for live Dodger games,” said Richard Choi, Vice Chairman of RK Media. “Korean Americans are huge fans of the Dodgers and every game Hyun-Jin Ryu pitches is a major event in our community. This is going to be a great year to be a Dodger fan.”
