My wife and I are also going to Time Warner. ATT Uverse did not pick up 25 Angel games on FSW this year. They picked up the Dodgers but not the Angel, go figure. Just another good reason to switch my TV, Internet and phones to Time Warner..
Fact check: In 2012, the Dodgers will broadcast approximately two thirds of their games on Fox Sports Prime Ticket and one third on KCAL 9. This is the same as in previous years; therefore, Fox Sports would have no reason to request additional fees from U-verse for the Dodgers games.
On the other hand, Fox Sports West will broadcast 150 Angels games which is an increase of 25 from previous seasons. The additional 25 games were previously broadcast on KCOP. Fox Sports is requesting additional fees for the extra 25 games that will be broadcast. Both U-verse and Dish have not agreed to pay the additional fees. As a result, Fox Sports will withhold those extra 25 games, and only 125 games will be made available. The 125 games that will be made available is the same number of games that Fox Sports carried in previous seasons.
