Is ESPN3 available to NYC subscribers?... I was just watching the French Open and the announcer on ESPN2 ended the broadcast by saying the TWC subscribers can continue watching the French Open on ESPN3. I tried using my TWC TV app on my iPad and Android Tablet, but the channel is not available. I'm connected using my TWC Modem at home where all the channels available through my subscription work fine.

Thanks...

ESPN3 is not a cable channel. It's only available over the internet.

Aren't you even a LITTLE curious...surely you care about Websites on the WEST Coast.....
And BTW: many Electronic Manufacturer's websites are in Asia.....just in case you need to download a User Guide...

And I'm sure that there are many of us who would appreciate knowing how "FAR" that Super-High Data Rate extends.
I see my Data Rate dropping by about HALF from "normal" of 16 Mbps when I try the "other Coast"...

Thanks... I already had the app installed in my N7 tablet, but not in my iPad ... that's why I didn't think of using it. I called TWC and they said that this channel was still not available in NY under TWC TV. You live and learn... one still has to use the TWC credentials in order to access this extra ESPN channel via the WatchESPN app. I'll try watching the extended French Open coverage tomorrow with WatchESPN on the iPad.

Time Warner Cable will sometimes show ESPN3 content in local areas on a TV alternate channel, at least they used to.

Your price should stay the same. The new speed tiers were rolled out in certain parts of NYC, LA and Austin Texas. What area are you?

The areas in NYC are parts of Queens, Staten Island and Upper East Manhattan.

You will be notified by mail when twc maxx will be available in your area. I live in the west side of Manhattan (Morningside heights), and I only have been notified by mail regarding the new channel lineup (June 12).

I first received snail mail and email notifications of the channel line up change. Then 3 weeks later I received notification of the Internet change. So if your received the channel line up notification the Internet notification should come soon after.

Just an FYI - If you want to watch the French Open or other games on ESPN3 on your TV you can now do it via Google ChromeCast using the recently released version of the WatchESPN app for Android and iOS. (Requires a WiFi LAN, a ChromeCast dongle and a TWC account or some other cable provider account) . Works great from my iPad. I was able to swap between the games being televised on ESPN2 and ESPN3 by switching the HDMI inputs of my TV.

Apologies if OT or wrong forum, but does anyone know how the new channel lineup will affect my custom mapped lineup I'm running through HDHomerunPrime / Windows Media Center?

I advise re-running the HDHR Channel Scan and Digital Cable Advisor manually on the morning of the lineup change. The HDHR channel scan will immediately reflect the new lineup, but the Digital Cable Advisor might take a day or two to update because that is done by Tribune Media Services. Your scheduled recordings will be broken until the TMS change goes through.

Yeah, I had the brochure and I like it. Back to the way it should be, but the XBOX ONE? I'm presuming it sets itself back up? There are no options to call out channels by number, so for now at least, this is useless.
