Los Angeles Cord Cutter's Sports Guide

SoCal Sports Guide

Need help choosing the right TV antenna? For questions, antenna recommendations,
and cord-cutting info, call our expert technicians at


If you live in or around Los Angeles and are a diehard sports fan, read this before you cut the cord.

At Solid Signal, we provide accurate information so you can make an informed decision about cutting the cord.  We let you know that you won’t see most Clippers, Dodgers, Kings, Lakers, and Rams games with your TV antenna.  This is due to something called the “blackout rule,” which is an agreement between team owners and TV stations.  Since we believe this isn’t fair, we provide options for cord-cutters in the Los Angeles area to watch sports on TV.


DIRECTV is a Sports Lover’s Dream

Sports on DIRECTV

If you love Los Angeles sports, a DIRECTV sports package is your best option for seeing your favorite teams.  DIRECTV offers a sports programming option for each major sport in vibrant digital reception.  Each of these allows you to watch every team and every game.  Best of all, you can keep your TV antenna and all that free OTA TV.

Whatever your professional sport, DIRECTV has the programming package:

  • For cord-cutters who want to watch baseball games in Los Angeles, you need MLB Extra Innings.  It’s the best way to support your Dodgers and Angels.
  • Hoops fans in Los Angeles have three teams to support – the Lakers, Clippers, and Sparks.  Cord-cutters can enjoy pro basketball games with DIRECTV’s NBA LEAGUE PASS, the ultimate viewing option for LA basketball lovers.
  • Do you love the Los Angeles Rams?  NFL SUNDAY TICKET MAX is a great viewing package to catch pro football in Los Angeles.
  • The NHL® Center Ice® package brings LA Kings and Anaheim Ducks action to your home.  It’s the perfect way for cord-cutters to watch hockey in Los Angeles.

Streaming is another way for cord-cutters to enjoy sports.  You can watch DIRECTV’s NFL SUNDAY TICKET MAX or MLB EXTRA INNINGS content on most Apple and Android mobile devices.  For an easy experience, you also can use your PS4 or Xbox One to stream NFL or MLB content to your TV.  Most DIRECTV sports packages include streaming, and DIRECTV offers standalone streaming of NFL SUNDAY TICKET MAX to most people who live where satellite TV isn’t allowed.
