Charter pacts with Time Warner for Lakers

Verizon FiOS also signs up for sports channels

Distrubution for Time Warner Cable’s dual channels featuring the Los Angeles Lakers has been extended in deals with Charter and Verizon FiOS.

Though the companies serve well below a million homes in the region, the pacts represent a breakthrough for Time Warner SportsNet and Time Warner Cable Deportes, which have been struggling to find broad distribution in Los Angeles with the Lakers’ regular-season debut on the channels coming Wednesday.

DirecTV, Dish and Cox still haven’t signed deals with Time Warner Cable for the English- and Spanish-language channels, which also feature Los Angeles Galaxy soccer, Los Angeles Sparks women’s basketball and selected high school and college games.
