The Angels got $3 Billion over 20 years sticking with FSN. ($150M Annually)
I'm sure they did but as a person that may watch the Dodgers games if they were on FSN, i wont' be paying a penny extra to get that channel. In fact, I'm on the verge of getting rid of cable altogether. I'm tired of paying for 200+ channels I don't watch to get the 5 channels that I do watch. This only adds to it because I can almost guarantee you when Charter adds the channel (If they haven't already), they'll sneak in a little charge to the sports tier I have to pay for to get NBCSN.

I guess if anything, this helps push people to the brink of saying "f it" to the cable companies.
