FiOS to launch TWC Sportsnet & TWC Deportes in California

We have some exciting news for our FiOS TV customers in Southern California. As you may have heard over the weekend, we’ve been able to secure the rights to add two new channels to the FiOS TV lineup in your region: Time Warner Cable Sportsnet and Time Warner Cable Deportes. All of the sports fans in the area know that these channels are the new home for the Los Angeles Lakers, LA Galaxy and Los Angeles Sparks games.

In addition to live games, Time Warner Cable Sportsnet will feature in-depth team programming with shows like “Access Sportsnet,” a daily studio show, as well as “#LakeShow,” the network’s live daily social media driven show. Time Warner Cable Deportes will air the pre-game show “Lakers En Vivo” as well as the post-game show “Somos Lakers.” You can read more about all the new programming coming your way by clicking here and here.

We know how important it is to be able to watch your favorite sports teams from the comfort of your own home. And we’ve been working hard with Time Warner Cable Sports to be able to make these channels a part of the FiOS TV lineup in California. We plan to add the channels as soon as possible, and will let you know here and on Twitter as soon as we have a confirmed launch date. Keep a look out for the new programming, with Time Warner Cable Sportsnet on FiOS TV Channel 578 in HD and 78 in SD. Time Warner Cable Deportes will be on FiOS TV Channel 79.
