Time Warner Adds ESPN Deportes

One down, two to go. Time Warner Cable added ESPN Deportes to its Spanish-language tier today, but still no word on when ESPNU or the high-definition feed of ESPN2 will be available in Greater Cincinnati.

ESPN Deportes debuted today on digital Channel 187, as part of its $2.95 per month Digital en Espanol tier. Subscribers also receive CNN Espanol, La Familia Network, Discovery Espanol, Puma Venezuela, Cine Latino, Canal Sur and Sopresa.

When the TWC-ESPN deal was announced in April, local Time Warner spokeswoman Karen Baxter said: "We'll get it (ESPNU) on as soon as week can." On Thursday she said Time Warner "will be adding ESPNU and ESPN2 HD later this year, but I don't have a date yet."

Will Greater Cincinnati's largest cable operator give us ESPNU before the college basketball season starts? Or the football season kicks off? Says Baxter: "Yes, we do expect ESPNU to be available by the start of the football season."

Can you check about FSN HD and why TWC has shown very little commitment to HD?

Exactly... who cares about ESPN Deportes? TWC would keep a LOT more viewers if they would add ESPNU, ESPN2-HD, FSN Ohio HD, and NFL Network!! Compared to the satellite providers, TWC's HD offering are very lackluster. Why are they not trying to be more competitive?

Anon 10:54, they are not being more competetive because they are in this case being too busy being politically correct. Where is the Big Juan when we need him?

anyone else see the irony in a Spanish language TV station with "Deport" as part of the title?

I'd bet there are more spanish-speaking households in Cincinnati than there are HD-capable households.

If there was really a great demand for more HD channels, there would be more HD channels on cable.

Just a hunch...

TWC Sucks. Their signal quality is poor, limited HD, an oh by the way they just raised the rates $17. Bye Bye Time Warner, Hello DirectTV. Great Signal, more HD Channels, and $35 cheaper than what TWC charges. I also have ESPN U, NFL Network, and much much more. Plus TWC has absolutely the worst customer service on the planet. Need I say more...

No way that there are more Spanish households than HD households. The cincy area should have at least 100,000 HD households this year. There is less HD because most of the HD is on the free broadcast networks.
