San Diego Cable Sports Network was a pay-per-view service offered by Cox Communications. It was established in 1984 to provide telecasts of San Diego Padres games, initially offering 40 games a season. Games could be purchased separately or as a package.[1][2] In addition to Cox, Sun Cable and American Cable Television also provided the service.[3] The 1993 season would be the Padres last on the San Diego Cable Sports Network, as they would sign a deal with Prime Ticket to appear on a new subfeed of that network in 1994.[4]
