PLAY BALL! TIME WARNER CABLE SAN ANTONIO ADDS TBS HD JUST IN TIME FOR MLB PLAYOFFS

I just can’t get enough high-Definition TV, and luckily Time Warner seems to be on a roll in delivering new HD content.

If you are a baseball fan you are in luck – TBS HD is here now – channel 113 on your HD Cable box – just in time for the playoffs.

That makes 32 HD channels available now.  That’s pretty good.

And I’m sure they’ll just keep adding more. 

SAN ANTONIO – (October 1, 2007) – Beginning Monday, October 1, TBS HD will be made available on Time Warner Cable San Antonio’s high definition lineup on digital channel 113. TBS HD will launch just in time for the start of the Major League Baseball Divisional Playoffs, which will be carried by TBS.

The MLB Wildcard Playoff Tiebreaker game between the San Diego Padres and Colorado Rockies will be shown on TBS HD starting at 6:30PM CT tonight.

Beginning October 3rd, TBS HD will carry all Division Series games and the National League Championship Series (NLCS). All MLB Postseason games will be shot in HD. A full schedule of the games is available at http://www.tbs.com/sports/mlb.

“HD maximizes the viewing experience of sports programming. Now baseball fans will be able to live the action of the MLB Playoffs on TBS HD in a way only high definition technology can offer,” said Jon Gary Herrera, vice president of governmental and public affairs for Time Warner Cable San Antonio. “Time Warner Cable’s high-definition lineup continues to grow at a rapid pace. With the launch of TBS HD, customers will have access to 32 channels of high-definition sports and entertainment programming plus 80 high-definition titles On Demand.”

TBS HD will also feature the TBS original series My Boys, The Bill Engvall Show and Tyler Perry’s House of Payne. Hit sitcoms including Seinfeld, Friends, Everybody Loves Raymond and Sex and the City will also air on TBS HD.

TBS HD will be made available to TBS subscribers with HD converters and HD televisions. The San Antonio division of Time Warner Cable is one of the leaders in HD subscribers in the nation. Time Warner Cable San Antonio has more than doubled the number of HD channels they carry since January.

  1. @Rick – good question. I find it hard to get excited about baseball, but yes – if I am ever going to watch it’ll the Cubs in the playoffs in High Def! 😀 Regardless – I will be pulling for them!

    Go Cubs!

  2. So what do you think of the Chicago Cubs making it to the playoffs with their first game being played on TBS tomorrow night? Now that its in HD…you planning on watching the Cubs once again?

  3. @Sisir – yeah, I know. Just teasing Yuvi – he had me watch Cricket yesterday. The guy hit six “home runs” in a row (which was pretty cool)!

    @Yuvi – Hah!

  4. @Rob: Yeah, right. Right. Riiight.

  5. I think Yuvi was referring to the sport ‘Cricket’….it’s understandable to want some HD Cricket in the aftermath of the amazing T20 World Cup….

  6. @Yuvi – I think I did see a cricket in HD on Planet Earth on the Discovery Channel. Wait – that could have been a grass-hopper…

  7. If there’s one thing the internet is good at, it’s at making people jealous.

    Where’re the HD Cricket feeds?
