Charter Plans To Add Dodgers "Soon"

Charter Communications plans to soon begin offering the Los Angeles Dodgers TV channel, SportsNet LA, in Southern California, breaking the year-long impasse that has prevented thousands of baseball fans from watching their favorite team on TV.

"We are going to get the Dodgers on," Charter Communications Chief Executive Tom Rutledge said Tuesday morning in an interview with the L.A. Times.

"We want the Dodgers on every outlet and we are committed to making that happen," Rutledge said.

Rutledge's company on Tuesday morning announced its $56.7-billion takeover of Time Warner Cable, which has been the only major distributor in Southern California to carry SportsNet LA since it launched at the start of the 2014 baseball season.

But the move is significant. Until now, Charter has been one of several pay-TV companies that has refused to carry SportsNet LA, which is owned by the Dodgers.
