Viewpoint / Letters : The Game Costs $5.95, but Commercials Are Free

June 21, 1986

Being a new subscriber to Dodgervision, I was appalled to see various commercial spots between innings. The Lakers and Kings televised many of their home games on Prime Ticket at no additional charge to cable subscribers, thus advertising was needed to cover their costs.

It's pure greed when we pay $5.95 per game and still are subjected to commercials. The Dodgers should either follow the example of the Lakers and Kings and make these telecasts available at no charge to cable subscribers, or eliminate the advertising.
