Time Warner Adding Fox Business Network

Rupert Murdoch's new Fox Business News channel will be available to Time Warner digital customers for the national launch Monday.

But Time Warner customers here will have to wait a while for the "fantasy football tracker" service available to sports fans in other TWC markets.

Here’s the scoop:

Fox Business Network: Most TWC digital customers will find it on Channel 146 Monday. In Liberty and Delhi townships, the old Adelphia systems, it will be on Channel 142.

The 24/7 channel will launch with 30 million subscribers, thanks to distribution agreements with Time Warner, Comcast, Charter, AT&T and DirecTV.

Business expert Neil Cavuto serves as FBN senior vice president, anchor and managing editor of business news. Syndicated radio host Dave Ramsey, heard 1-4 p.m. on WFTK-FM (SupertalkFM96.5), will host a prime-time show.

See a sneak peek at http://www.foxbusiness.com/

Fantasy Tracker: Some day TWC will bring it's interactive fantasy football tracker to Cincinnati – after testing it in some TWC markets.

"My Football Tracker," developed with an interactive-TV media company in Plano, Texas, "displays a subscriber's fantasy team results on-screen, regardless of which channel is being viewed, and can send out alerts if a player scores a touchdown or hits other milestones," according to Multichannel News. Sounds pretty neat.

TWC offers the service in Buffalo, N.Y.; Green Bay, Wisc.; Columbia, S.C.; Portland, Me., and Waco, Corpus Christi, El Paso, Austin and San Antonio, Texas.

Greater Cincinnati will get Football Tracker "at some point in the future. We are not one of the early markets," says Karen Baxter, TWC spokeswoman here.

Does this include Insight? I know they are/were a part of Comcast.

No, Insight says it's not picking up Fox Business Network for the Monday launch.

Comcast and Insight split a few months ago.

Let's hope Insight stays on the intelligent side and doesn't pick up Pravda's biz channel.

ANON 7:07am - are your initials B.S.? If not, cheer up, there is one other hockey fan in Cincinnati.

My initials aren't B.S. but I've been told that that's my medium.

Another hockey fan in Cincinnati.

Likewise, our house is full of hockey fans.

VERSUS.

If we can have the weirdest assortment of narrowcast channels, why can't TWC put VERSUS on their line-up. So much for customer service!
