Time Warner Cable will air final 6 Dodger games on broadcast station KDOC

Who the heck has Time Warner? I'm still watching the games illegally online. Embarrassing that the Dodgers/Time Warner/DirecTV/Verizon/Other big cable companies couldn't agree to something. I don't care who's at fault. But hey! Watch the last 6 games on your TV on channel 56!

From the Dodgers - 

Time Warner Cable today announced it has secured an agreement to broadcast the final week of Dodger games on KDOC. KDOC is an independent broadcast station that is carried by every cable, satellite and telco provider in Southern California and can also be received over the air with an antenna.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are in an exciting race for the National League West Division Championship. The final six games, including a series against rival San Francisco Giants, will determine if the Dodgers make the playoffs and have a chance to win the World Series.

Beginning September 22, Time Warner Cable will simulcast the remaining games of the season, featuring the iconic Vin Scully, on SportsNet LA and KDOC, subject to national broadcast commitments. The Dodgers face the Giants on September 22, 23 and 24 at 7:10 p.m. and then take on the Rockies on September 26 at 7:10 p.m., September 27 at 6:10 p.m. and September 28 at 1:10 p.m.

“Time Warner Cable is part of this community and we’re Dodger fans too,” said Dinni Jain, Time Warner Cable’s Chief Operating Officer. “Angelenos love their Dodgers, and we’re happy to give them a way to watch their beloved team during this pennant chase.”

Time Warner Cable has worked hard to get other providers to carry SportsNet LA so all fans will have access to games. The company even agreed to enter into binding arbitration to secure a deal and offered to make games available during arbitration. Unfortunately, other providers have refused.

“Right now, we can’t change the fact that other area TV distributors won’t carry the channel, but we don’t want anyone to miss this exciting pennant run,” Mr. Jain continued. “We hope everyone will tune in to KDOC and help us cheer on the Dodgers. We will continue to work on long-term agreements with other providers in the off season.”
