Hence, you actually need the "Digital Cable Package" which is Basic Cable + 1 Digital Tier.
I have no idea why they even use the term "Standard" as it does not appear in their pricing list or channel lineup.
On another note, TWC Sportsnet announced even more Laker programs:
Backstage Lakers - will take fans to previously off-limits areas, including the executive suites and locker rooms.
Floor Seats - interview program that will showcase the Lakers' celebrity fan base.
Laker Girls - reality show about the team's famous eye candy.
Well, the listing shows PAC12 LA on BASIC Cable and the alert for LakerTV says:
On or after October 1, 2012, TWC SportsNet, TWC SportsNet HD, TWC Deportes and TWC Deportes HD will be made available to customers with subscription to the Basic Cable tier.
So, even long time subscribers are not sure what the latest naming convention really means! I would go by these and say they are both on basic cable, but not sure. /Dan
