PLEASE ADD THE LAKERS' TIME WARNER CABLE SPORTSNET CHANNEL!!
The Lakers have a new exclusive television channel that will provide all of their broadcasts excluding national broadcasts on TNT, ABC and ESPN. The new channel is called Time Warner Cable SportsNet and will be launched on October 1st. The channel will carry ALL HOME AND AWAY GAMES except for the handful of nationally broadcast games and will be the ONLY channel to do so! KCAL-9 and FOXSPORTS WEST WILL NOT carry the games any longer; they lost their contract. It is IMPERATIVE that you add this channel before the Lakers pre-season begins in October...preferrably when the channel launches on October 1st!

Hi Everybody, I posted a reply regarding this at the Verizon Idea Exchange portion of the forums.
Please go to the link above and vote up the topic and reply if you want TWC Sportsnet carried by Verizon FIOS TV!!!
I also found this on the Lakers fan site Lakers Topbuzz:
Here is the direct link to the Lakers fan site: http://lakers.topbuzz.com/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t-42402-start-250.html#732016
So it looks like DirecTV will be an option if Verizon does not get a deal done and you don't want to switch to Time Warner Cable.
VERIZON NEEDS TO ADD TWC SPORTS NET TO THE LINE UP SOON!!!! SOMETIME THIS FREAKEN WEEK. BECAUSE THIS WILL BE THE LAST WEEK I AM WAITING FOR AN UPDATE OR FIOS TO ADD THIS TO THE LINE UP. I AM NOT WILLING TO MISS MORE THEN A WEEK. PERIOD.
