Charter cable customers in Los Angeles to see Dodgers

LOS ANGELES (AP) Charter Communications customers in Los Angeles will be able to watch Dodgers games on television starting Tuesday after they have been shut out for over a year.

SportsNetLA, the team's exclusive TV network through Time Warner Cable, said Thursday it is making games available in Los Angeles, San Luis Obispo and Porterville. The network's Spanish-language game telecasts will also be available to Charter customers.

Team President Stan Kasten said he hopes other providers come on board soon so all Dodgers fans can watch the games.

Only customers of Time Warner have been able to watch the Dodgers since the contract to broadcast the team's games was bought by the cable company in 2013. That has left out subscribers of major providers such as DirecTV, Dish Network, Verizon and AT&T.

SportsNetLA is owned by the Dodgers.
