DirecTV and Time Warner Cable have reached a deal to broadcast Los Angeles Lakers games on the company’s new cable networks SportsNet and Deportes.
The deal was officially announced Thursday afternoon. Time Warner Cable SportsNet can be seen on DirecTV channel 691, with Deportes (the Spanish-language channel) on channel 458 starting tonight.
The agreement, along with ones announced earlier with cable companies Cox and Charter and telecom distributors Verizon Fios and AT&T U-Verse, leaves Dish Network as the lone major holdout.
The Lakers’ next seven games are scheduled to air exclusively on Time Warner Cable SportsNet, including Friday’s 7:30 p.m. home game against the Phoenix Suns.
