I switched to the Guide on my 8300 HD DVR today and noticed "SNYHD" appeared on channel 1866. No program data has appeared as of 7:45PM 3/15/06.

This channel will have the NY Mets games in HD.

There is no mention of the SNY HD channel on the TWC website, but it does state:
Quote:
SportsNet New York will launch on Time Warner Cable channel 66 starting Thursday, March 16.
Here's the entire statement from the TWC website:

SportsNet New York coming March 16

SportsNet New York will launch on Time Warner Cable channel 66 starting Thursday, March 16.

SportsNet New York is a 24-hour-a-day, 7-day-a-week premiere sports and entertainment television network that will feature up to 125 New York Mets baseball games. It will also provide live sports and local news coverage to the Tri-State area through three nightly "SportsNite" shows. SNY is also the official year-round television home of the New York Jets.

This channel is available in our the New York state part of our system only.

I received an email from Albany TWC this afternoon with the following information:

During a commercial for PTI on ESPN, I flipped over to SortsNetNY HD and saw The Daily News Live show. It was in HD and had excellent PQ.

Commercials on SportsNetNY HD promoting their upcoming shows were in HD and looked good, too.
