The long awaited Dodgers network known as SportsNet LA, part of a twenty five year, $8 billion deal launches on February 25th at 7 PM PST.

Unlike the Time Warner Sports Net channel that is shared by the Los Angeles Lakers, Sparks, and Galaxy, this new network is owned and operated by the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Time Warner customers can tune in to HD Channel 431 and standard Definition Channel 231. Time Warner is said to be in talks with various other operators such as AT & T U-verse, DirecTV, and COX. A deal should be coming soon between the various providers, however no projected date has been scheduled.

This new network will include exclusive behind the scenes coverage of the Dodgers with shows like Backstage:Dodgers, interviews, and most importantly the chance for fans to watch every Dodger game home and away.

The new SportsNet LA network consist of a dynamite line up includes insight from Jerry Hairston Jr., former Cy Young winner Orel Hershiser, Nomar Garciaparra, Alana Rizzo (formely of the MLB Network), and John Hartung (formerly ABC 7 in Los Angeles).

As Dodger fans get to hear that golden voice of summer known as Vin Scully call all of the Dodger home games and a few away games this season.

I’m looking forward to enjoying this new Dodgers network, that has been a long time in the making, but I’m sure will be well worth the wait.

Legendary Los Angeles Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully was celebrated with his own bobblehead as part of the Dodger Stadium 50th Anniversary season on Thursday night.

Scully was also out to throw the ceremonial first pitch, but had help as he included his grandchildren and family in the festivities.

Vin Scully recently made a huge announcement earlier this week that he would return to the broadcast booth for the 2013 Dodgers season.

Vin Scully was inducted in the American Sportscasters Association Hall of Fame in 1992. He was also inducted into the Southern California Broadcasters Hall of fame in 1997. Scully’s broadcasting career began with the Dodgers on April 18, 1950 at Shibe Park as the Dodgers played Philadelphia.
