LOS ANGELES (AP) - Time Warner Cable has won a contract to carry Los Angeles Dodgers games for at least the next two decades starting in 2014, snatching the games away from Fox Sports after this year's baseball season ends.
That's according to a person familiar with the matter, who was not authorized to speak publicly. The deal has not yet been finalized, although it is to be announced within days.
The Los Angeles Times earlier reported the nation's second-largest cable operator will pay around $7 billion to carry the games.
It is the second major sports rights deal in three years for Time Warner Cable, which bought the rights to Lakers basketball games and launched regional sports networks covering them last year.
