Los Angeles Dodgers fans finally have a reason to celebrate, even if it is ironic right now.
It’s been a hard few months for Los Angeles Dodgers fans. First, with the revelation of the Houston Astros cheating scandal, then with the realization nothing would really happen in regards to it and then, of course, the postponing of the 2020 season due to the coronavirus pandemic.
But Dodgers fans finally have a reason to smile, even if it is a little ironic.
Spectrum TV has finally reached a deal that will allow a mass majority of fans who were previously blacked out of watching the games, to watch them now. The games which are hosted on SportsNet LA will now be aired on DirecTV and its subsidiaries including AT&T video subscribers as of Wednesday.
This is great news for us Southern California fans who were blacks out of seeing the team head to the world series due to a cable TV dispute that lasted longer than it really needed to. Many fans, like myself, were unable to watch The Dodgers regular games since 2014.
“Working together with AT&T, we were able to reach an agreement to offer the region’s most popular teams to local fans across AT&T’s video platforms,” said Dan Finnerty, senior vice president of Spectrum Networks (via KTLA)
This is, of course, bittersweet considering there aren’t any actual games to watch right now. The network, which also homes the Los Angeles Lakers games, is re-airing classic games from the past and special programming.
Although there’s nothing to watch right now, it’s good to know that when the season starts, we’ll be able to finally watch our Dodgers once again.
