Congresswoman Janice Hahn (CA-44) recently announced that Frontier Communications and Time Warner Cable have accepted her request for a face to face meeting regarding carriage of SportsNet LA. Representatives from both companies will meet in the Congresswoman’s San Pedro office on May 5. The congresswoman hopes that this will be a step toward finding a solution to the Dodgers Blackout currently affecting 60% of Los Angeles region households.


 “I appreciate Frontier Communications and Time Warner Cable for agreeing to meet,” said Hahn. “I am happy to welcome Frontier to the Los Angeles region and I believe this is an opportunity to endear themselves to their new customers and to Dodger fans everywhere.”


 “Dodger fans are sick of this blackout and they want to know that all sides are actively working toward a solution,” she added.  “I hope that other cable companies will follow their example and agree to meet. I am hopeful that this will be a productive meeting and that Dodger games will be back on fans’ TV sets soon.”


 To date, Hahn has met with Time Warner Cable, Dodgers executives, and every major cable and satellite provider in the Los Angeles region regarding the issue, said a Hahn spokesperson.
