Don't read too far into that comment. "No plans" only means that a deal has not been reached yet. From what Verizon carries around the country, regional sports programming is extremely important to them. I simply cannot imagine Vz going without Lakers games this season. As long as they are negotiating, Verizon will say absolutely nothing, and customer service will continue to say there are no plans to carry it.
I agree with Caps09, they won't say anything unfortunately until a deal is done. Much like in the NBA.
It sucks for us the fans but they could at least say that talks are going on...
T-minus 18 days until pre-season starts....
Time is running out for me.
Luckily my contract ran out in sept and i am specifically waiting to renew for this very reason.
100% i will switch to TW if they don't have it done. I know they will probably get it eventually but i am not going to wait or put up with that **bleep**.
Get it done verizon. 10 other customers in my apartment building are gonna switch as well.
Don' underestimate how many laker fans are out there..........nationwide. Get it done.
FIOS, we need some kind of an update on the new Laker network! Cancellation fee or not I'm switching if you don't get the Laker games. I like FIOS better then Time Warner cable but will not miss watching the Lakers!!!
Thank you..all you guys with the passion we all share with THE LAKERS! I'm glad you are there with the same thoughts as me in that I can't miss one minute of Laker basketball. I've been a fan of that team going back to 60's with Jerry & Elg. My life revolves around a Laker broadcast from Chickie Baby to Stu to Joe Meyer and now Billy Mac. Now to find out Verizon and all the other providers except for TWC don't have Laker Basketball. It's not even on the local So Cal station KCAL anymore. If you get the NBA package it's blackout. All the posts I've read show your passion for Lakers and what a team we have this year. I'm on Laker page on Facebook and see the I want my Laker site which is basically a TWC site to put your '2 cents" in. I want Verizon to get the Lakers very soon or else.
Now I just got Fios in a bundle package with my phone and internet and left Direct for a better price by bundling. Service has been great but one thing that I still have not received....my $350 debit card for signing up. First I was told after 45 days then after the 60 day committment I was told and now it's been 6 months and no promise of debit card with agreement. So if no debit card then Verizon has not come through with "terms of agreement". I will quit Verizon and go to the first provider who puts TWC net on their channel lineup without early termination fee since Verizon(which I like hear that Verizon) has not given me my bonus debit card we agreed to. Thanks Laker fans for being here in this forum for us..you guys have made me think maybe it will be on by opening night..so hope
Hey FIOS, how about an update!!!! Are you speaking with TMC Sportsnet? Why can't we pay for the channel now, and let you work out the details later. Why are Lakers fans put in the position of choosing? FIOS is a great product, but it's frustrating when we have the best team in years with the Lakers, and CAN"T SEE IT ON TV!
