Akron SVSM Signs Cable Deal
November 8, 2002

Some northeast Ohio cable customers may soon be able to watch high school basketball star LeBron James play from the comfort of their living rooms.

Time Warner Cable says it has signed an preliminary deal with Akron Saint Vincent-Saint Mary to broadcast the school's boys basketball games on pay-per-view.

Time Warner spokesman Bill Jasso says they're still working out which games will be broadcast and how much the cable company will charge for them.

Saint Vincent-Saint Mary athletic director Grant Innocenzi says the school has had to turn people away from basketball games because they can't fit them all into the school gym.

He says the original idea was to set up a feed so fans could watch the game in the school's theater. But then Time Warner pitched the pay-per-view idea.
