Correction: This article previously stated that Padres games were not broadcasted on DirecTV last year. This is incorrect. Padres games were shown on DirecTV, but Fox Sports San Diego was not a full-time sports network with DireccTV. While Padres games were broadcasted, other sporting events and programs shown on Fox Sports San Diego were not available. We regret this error.
