It's strange that Fox Sports San Diego hasn't come out and announced that AT&T UVerse has purchased their Padres themed channel, giving San Diegans another alternative to Time Warner.
Besides the fact that the game last night was televised this is about as official as the news gets at the moment.
AT&T U-Verse spokesman tells me FSSD deal got done "in the last two days." Channel 776/1776 in HD. #Padrestothepeople— Matthew T. Hall (@SDuncovered) October 3, 2012
Maybe the deal is only done to a point and there is still red tape to get through but they decided to throw AT&T customers a bone.
