    As someone in San Diego, Directv has added both Fox Sports San Diego (Padres) and Time Warner Sports Net (Lakers) on the regular tier package with Fox Sports West and Prime Ticket.

    There is a catch 22 with subscription base, you get the subscriber dollars, but the big bucks are made in advertising. A higher tier, means fewer viewers, thus fewer advertising dollars.
