Time Warner Adds HGTV-HD and Food-HD
Time Warner Cable today added two more high-definition channels: HGTV-HD (Channel 982) and Food Network HD (Channel 981) from Cincinnati-based E.W. Scripps. The new channels will be part of the "HD standard tier," and "available at no additional charge to all Time Warner Cable customers who subscribe to standard service or above and have a high definition television and high definition converter," says Karen Baxter, local Time Warner public affairs director.
On Wednesday, Time Warner added TBS-HD in time for the Major League Baseball playoffs on TBS. That wasn't a big surprise, considering that Time Warner owns TBS and Turner Broadcasting.
With HGTV and Food, TWC offers 23 HDTV channels.
