Padres games may soon be available to other TV carriers

Posted: Updated:

(CBS 8) - Padres fans who don't subscribe to Cox Cable or Time-Warner Cable may soon be able to watch their favorite team's games on TV.

The FCC voted 4-1 Wednesday to close the loophole that allowed Cox and other cable competitors elsewhere to withhold local sports programming from competitors.

It opens the door for rivals such as Direct TV and AT&T to eventually add Padres games to their lineups.

It could take some time for the games to show up on the other carriers because they must negotiate deals with Cox to carry the games.
