Time Warner Cable says talks with DirecTV for Dodgers channel are over

With more than 1.2 million subscribers in Los Angeles, DirecTV has an almost 30% share of the market. Not having DirecTV on board is a big blow to the Dodgers and Time Warner Cable, which launched the channel in February.
No other major area distributors have been signed by Time Warner Cable, but Witmer said negotations with them are ongoing. About 70% of the market is without access to Dodgers games.
DirecTV has previously indicated that the price Time Warner Cable is seeking for the Dodgers is excessive and that it wants to sell SportsNet LA on an individual or a la carte basis.
Time Warner Cable has countered that its price is reasonable and that no regional sports networks, including those owned by DirecTV, are offered a la carte.

Time Warner throws down the gauntlet. With sole possession of Dodger games do they win the market or lose big money on their contract?
