Time Warner Cable launches new HD sports channels

Time Warner Cable Desert Cities launched three new HD sports channels on Wednesday, geared toward their season-long professional sports league offerings.

Just in time for the NHL season that begins Saturday, subscribers to the NHL Center Ice package will have two HD channels with game action. The new HD channels are 936 and 937.

Those same channel numbers also will feature baseball games when the MLB Extra Innings package launches in April.

In addition, subscribers to the NBA League Pass can watch selected games in HD on channel 993.
