What does the Kings TV contract look like?

Does anyone know what the Kings TV contract looks like?

Fox Sports got dealt a huge blow yesterday, with the Lakers leaving for their own Network, starting next season.

Wonder if the Kings will follow the Lakers to that new channel on Time Warner? Or if this means more coverage for the Kings on Fox Sports.

The only thing mentioned in articles so far is that FSN has "long term" agreements with all of the other pro sports teams with the exception of the Dodgers, which expires in 2013, so nothing to worry about anytime soon.

It is a bunch of white pieces of paper with black letters on them. But that's not important right now.

So Time Warner is creating a Lakers Channel? 24/7 Lakers all the time?

According to Time Warner it will be majority Lakers, but not exclusive to the team like YES (Yankees owned RSN), so I think Time Warner might try to get other teams on the channel.

Great News!

I like basketball, but I can't stand the Lakers or the NBA. The less I have to see of them the better.

... Perhaps if some other sports team in the area had won a championship in the last 23 years, this would not be the case.

Say what you will about basketball and the NBA - and I for one do not enjoy it nearly as much as I did in years past - but the Lakers are an incredibly successful organization, and deserve every second of coverage that they get.

What? How did this "Laker news" happen and I didn't hear about it as every lead news story in L.A.?

No seriously, what is this? link?



And where can someone get some glue around here?! - this week!

Time Warner's starting a network and will take the Lakers with them. Probably will try to take the Dodgers too.

http://www.latimes.com/sports/basket...,1870324.story

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Under its deal with Fox Sports West, the Lakers were getting about $30 million a year in rights fees, people familiar with the situation said. Some industry observers pegged the new 20-year pact at a value of $3 billion, although Time Warner Cable dismissed that figure.
GAH!

So Fox Sports West will have 65 open slots for other programing. If the Kings stay on Fox then that means maybe all Kings games will be on Fox and no need for channel 13. If the Kings move with the Lakers (AEG does own a share of the Lakers) it could be good or bad. They have two channels to fill and one Kings channel and one Lakers channel could work. If the Dodgers go as well it could cause some overlap but not more than now. I don't think there will be many days when the Dodgers, Lakers and Kings all are playing at the same time.

well, i'm definitely not trying to voice the "why don't the kings get covered?!" whine. i'm aware of the fact that success brings coverage. but all of that doesn't mean that all the coverage doesn't annoy me, as, like you, i don't really enjoy basketball. i'm also talking about the fact that everyone is a lakers fan now, even if they never enjoyed basketball or the lakers were never their team, and you can't go ANYWHERE in california, let alone LA, without seeing lakers paraphernalia. even my frigging facebook is all about the "lakeshow" (and yes, i know you can [and i do] hide people, as well as go on facebook sparingly). bandwagonning has always irritated me. and that's really what i see when i see a ton of lakers stuff all over the place.

to conclude, yes...i know these feelings are all irrational and i'm probably just being a bit of a **** and raining on everyone's championship parade, so i'm sorry for that. and to all lakers fans here (who i'm sure, just by the fact that you're on the boards, aren't bandwagonners) i mean no offense, and i'm definitely not out there actively rooting against them--see my "i don't care about basketball" comment. if the situation were switched and it was the clippers and not the lakers (HAHAHAHA, right??!), i'd still be the same way.

Does this mean Laker games won't be available on Directv or will this Time Warner channel be available to other cable and sat. providers?

Confused.

And the Galaxy rule. Soccer is a great sport.

I don't think the Kings draw well enough to hold together FSW on their own, especially if the Dodgers leave as well. I wouldn't be surprised to see FSW and Prime Ticket merge, meaning on nights when the Ducks/Kings are both playing there would be an issue.

The Time Warner channel will be available. DirecTV and other cable providers are going to have to buck up though, and of course they will considering if they didn't there would be a mass exodus.

As long as they don't go over to a comcast channel. I use Game Center to watch all the Kings games and it works fine. But comcast doesn't allow game center to stream their games. People who are flyers, sharks, caps fans are always stuck with the roads teams broadcast.

I read somewhere that FSW charges about 2.37 a person a month and that this new deal will cost over $3 a person if they are on the same number of TVs. You know that if a cable company has both they will sell both as part of the "Sports" package and you will not be able to pick just one.

End result by Lakers doing this deal we all are going to pay 3.00 more a month to watch the Kings on another channel.
