Verizon: Here, Dodger Fans, Have Some Free Showtime To Drown The Misery Of Your Baseball-Free Existance

A real letter I got today from Verizon:
Dear Valued Verizon Customer,

You may have heard that Time Warner Cable and the Dodgers have created a new channel — Time Warner Cable SportsNet LA — that will carry many of the Dodgers' games this season.

We realize that for avid baseball fans, catching every game is important. While we have attempted to negotiate an agreement with time Warner Cable to carry SportsNet LA, significant differences still remain. Several TV providers, including Verizon, do not believe the fees sought by Time Warner Cable are fair or reasonable.

We will continue to pursue an equitable agreement because we understand the importance of providing great service at a fair price.

In the meantime, rest assured that you will be able to view the Dodgers' games in the following ways:

  1. Watch nationally broadcast games on ESPN, Fox Sports 1 or FOX (KTTV-11).
  2. With your MLB Extra Innings* package, you have free access to MLB.TV, which allows you to watch up to 80 or more live out of market games each week — all in incredible HD
Grab your peanuts and popcorn and enter for a chance to win Dodgers tickets! Go to fiossocal.com/fioscustomerlovesweeps and use the password that everyone loves to hear — PLAYBALL — to enter.

Thank you for being a valued customer. Showtime® programming has been added to your account FREE for 3 months. When the time period ends, we'll remove it automatically from your account and you will not be charged. No action is required on your part.

Please know that we will update you on any changes to the availability of SportsNet LA.

Not exactly honest about the Extra Innings package, are they? I mean, I can't watch the Giants feed of Dodgers games at AT&T Park, now, can I?

Actually, MLB.TV let's you watch every MLB game 90 minutes after the live game ends, regardless of blackout rules.
