LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Dodgers have announced the launch of SportsNet LA, their regional sports network with Time Warner Cable for the 2014 season.
The team said Monday that its ownership group created an American Media Productions LLC subsidiary in December 2012 to launch the network. TWC will make payments and have the exclusive advertising and affiliate sales rights.
Dodgers owner Mark Walter says ``we concluded last year that the best way to give our fans what they want - more content and more Dodger baseball - was to launch our own network.''
The Dodgers said the agreement is subject to closing conditions. The Los Angeles Times reported last week the nation's second-largest cable operator will pay around $7 billion to carry the games.
The Dodgers will remain on Fox's Prime Ticket, a division of News Corp., this year.
