Starting today, Cox Communications customers in California and Las Vegas will have access to Time Warner Cable SportsNet and Time Warner Cable Deportes. These networks are the local TV homes for Los Angeles Lakers, LA Galaxy and Los Angeles Sparks games, as well as in-depth, dedicated, team-focused programming.

Cox customers also will have access to Time Warner Cable SportsNet and Time Warner Cable Deportes programming online and on mobile devices in the future.

“We’re happy to partner with Cox Communications to bring Lakers, Galaxy and Sparks fans closer to their teams than they ever have been before,” said Dan Finnerty, Senior Vice President, Time Warner Cable Sports. “Virtually every fan in our territory now has a television option to watch the teams they love on Time Warner Cable SportsNet and Time Warner Cable Deportes.”

In addition to live games, programming on Time Warner Cable SportsNet includes “Access SportsNet,” the network’s signature daily studio show that encompasses pre- and post-game shows as “Access SportsNet: Lakers” and “Access SportsNet: Galaxy” as well as “#LakeShow,” the network’s live daily social media-driven show. Original programming on Time Warner Cable SportsNet includes “Backstage: Lakers” (titled “Lakers Confidencial” on Time Warner Cable Deportes), a weekly documentary that chronicles the Lakers season from start to finish, and “Connected With…,” the network’s signature interview show that features interviews with professional athletes, sports insiders and Southern California personalities.

Time Warner Cable SportsNet will also have Korean Secondary Audio Programming (SAP) available for live Lakers games starting later this month, the first-ever Korean SAP for English-language television.

On Time Warner Cable Deportes, programming includes the “Lakers En Vivo” pre-game show and “Somos Lakers” post-game show, as well as “Somos Lakers éné-bé-a,” a weekly show dedicated to the latest on the Lakers and the NBA that will include highlights, live interviews, commentary and other special segments.
