I for one am really really happy about this… I hate tape delays… HATE THEM! Those who are pissed about this get into the 21st Century and pick yourself a DV-R.
L.A. Times: Re-signing Andrew Bynum was a solid move and the Lakers’ fast start to the season has been nothing short of spectacular, but here’s something that might really excite their fans: Live telecasts from the East Coast!
Channel 9 for years has shown games from the Eastern time zone and occasionally the Central time zone on a tape-delayed basis, angering fans that wanted to follow the action as it happened but drawing higher ratings by showing games at a later hour when larger audiences were available to watch.
This season, every Lakers game will be telecast live.
Thank you, KCAL!
