Fox Sports San Diego And Time Warner Cable Agree To Deal; Padres For Everyone

USA TODAY Sports

After two years the two sides finally come to an agreement.

Fox Sports San Diego launched on back on March 17, 2012. For two whole seasons it has shown Padres games to those that got the channel. For those two years, anyone with Time Warner Cable did not see Fox Sports San Diego and missed out on seeing two full seasons worth of Padres games. For those that stuck with Time Warner Cable, the wait is over. Fox Sports San Diego will be a part of one of their cable packages beginning next month. Here is the official release from Fox Sports San Diego:

FOX SPORTS SAN DIEGO AND TIME WARNER CABLE

REACH AGREEMENT TO CARRY PADRES GAMES

FOX Sports San Diego and Time Warner Cable are pleased to announce that they have reached an agreement to carry the new regional sports network in time for Padres baseball.

Time Warner Cable will begin offering FOX Sports San Diego in time for the 2014 Major League Baseball season so fans can catch all the action.  Padres games will be distributed on Time Warner Cable systems in San Diego, as well as surrounding areas in the Padres territory.

The network will launch for Time Warner Cable customers on March 30, 2014. Channel position on Time Warner Cable systems will be announced at a later date.

"We’re happy for the many Padres fans who are Time Warner Cable customers who now will be able to follow their hometown baseball team on TV all season long," said Henry Ford, Senior Vice President and General Manager, FOX Sports San Diego.  "With this agreement, Padres baseball will now be available in more homes in San Diego than ever before."

"We’re pleased to have reached a reasonable long-term agreement for Fox Sports San Diego, and we look forward to launching this network in the near future," said Jennifer Chun Senior Vice President, Content Acquisition for Time Warner Cable.

And here is the official Padres press release:
