Time Warner Adds TBS HD For Baseball Playoffs
Good news for HDTV owners with Time Warner Cable: TBS HD will be added by Time Warner on Wednesday, in time for the baseball playoffs.
TBS HD will debut Wednesday as Channel 980 on the HD standard tier. It will be available at no additional charge to Time Warner subscribers who have standard HDTV service or above, a HDTV set and HDTV receiver, says Karen Baxter, local Time Warner public affairs director.
The two National League Division Series begin Wednesday on TBS. In a change from past years, TBS has TV rights to all of the National and American League Division Series games.
TBS also has the Rockies-Padres playoff game at 7:30 p.m. today. There's a chance that TBS HD will be up by then, so HDTV customers should check Channel 980 tonight too. (Baxter says TBS HD definitely will be available by Wednesday.)
TBS will have the National League Championship Series (Oct. 11-20), while Fox broadcasts the American League Championship Series (Oct. 12-21) and the World Series (starting Oct. 24).
