Where is Pac-12 Network Los Angeles and Time Warner Cable SportsNet for your Southern California customers?

We know this is a pain point for our customers - especially those in CA who can't leverage the NBA League Pass to view these games.  Our Content team is aware of this concern and is working to provide a solution that will benefit all.  As soon as we can share more news - we will.  Thanks for sharing your concerns.  It really helps to know how we can better serve our customers.

Deb282, I just don't get the impression from Verizon that adding the channels are a high priority.  Added together, the 2 channels I referenced broadcast at least 100 total Lakers (75), UCLA Bruins (15), and USC Trojan (20) basketball games.  In addition, the Pac-12 Los Angeles Network also airs around 10 total UCLA Bruins (6) and USC (4) football games.  These are all games that we used to be able to watch, yet you are still asking us to pay hundreds of dollars a month for content we no longer recieve.  Whenever you say you are "working to provide a solution that will benefit all" you are saying that you don't want to pay the market rate for the channel that other providers have agreed to.  Why can Comcast, Dish, Time Warner, Cox, Brighthouse agree to terms with the Pac-12 at a set rate but Verizon continues to drag their feet?  It shows that these channels and your Southern California customers are no longer a high priority for Verizon.  We don't even care about the National Network, we just want to watch our local teams on the Los Angeles Network.  Please agree to terms with Pac-12 and Time Warner SportsNet and then go back to Fox Sports and ask for a reduction since they no longer carry that content.  Many sports fans only get FiOS so we can watch our teams, not for channels like Cartoon Network.  If you want to put Pac-12 and TimeWarner Sportsnet in a special sports tier, thats great, but then don't force us sports fans to subscribe to channels like Cartoon network,, and the 100's of other channels we don't care about.

If this is true, thank you for bringing the Lakers to Fios!!!


Please finish the job and bring USC and UCLA to your Southern California customers ASAP!  Basketball season starts in the next 2 weeks and UCLA is 13th in the nation!  Thank you!

That article shows you how important regional sports are to Verizon. I figured this whole time that a deal would be done, I just didn't know if it would be in time for the season to start. Hopefully the engineering work was already in progress because Verizon takes forever to add a channel. They use fiber optic links for local and regional channels, and they are very, very particular about the signal quality. The good news is that once the channel is up, there won't be any problems by the time it's live. Congrats LA fans!

We'll see how long it takes for the Pac12 Network. I suspect it will be in HD for California, but only in SD and maybe on the highest package for the rest of the country.

I'm in the DC area and there is no such thing as channel 757 let alone a Cartoon Network HD channel.  I'm sure that since it was added the morning of the 25th that it must be me.  Maybe I don't know how to use a remote control?

@ andygump

I'm also in the DC area (Montgomery). I just verified it's there...on 757. Maybe you're using "favorites" to navigate?

This is good news, but what I have been really waiting for is the ability to watch live tv on our iPads.  Cox has had this for over a year now.

Sweet! I am still waiting on G4 HD to arrive. I'm hoping that it happens soon!
