Dodgers TV Row Fuels Unease Over Comcast-Time Warner Deal

A fee dispute between Time Warner Cable Inc. and its competitors that has left Los Angeles Dodgers games blacked out for most fans is threatening to undermine the merger of the nation’s two largest cable-television companies.

The decision by Time Warner Cable to raise the rates for competitors to air the baseball games has met resistance from companies including AT&T Inc. and DirecTV. An analysis based on data from SNL Kagan found that Time Warner Cable is asking for more than double what other regional sports networks charge.
