There’s no turning back!  Time Warner Cable’s Carolina Region is rolling out HD channels like never before.  Time Warner Cable, the home of Free HD, is adding five new HD channels to the lineup. The channels are available free to customers with TWC’s digital tier of service and HD equipment.   The channels will be added in phases beginning Thursday, October 29th and continuing over the next few months. 

The list of high definition channels include: Speed HD, BIO, Weather Channel HD, FX HD and Hallmark HD.  Sprout and MLB will also be added in Standard Definition.

These new channels are the result of a more than $50 million dollar infrastructure upgrade.  “Time Warner Cable is and will continue to be the best HD value available,” says Brian Kelly, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Time Warner Cable’s Carolina Region. “With our advanced fiber network, these additional channels are the first step toward adding hundreds of HD programming choices in the future.”  The new channels offer something for everyone!

Speed Channel
Speed Channel HD is the HD simulcast of Speed Channel, your number one authority on anything motorsports including NASCAR and Formula One race coverage.

Bio HD is the HD simulcast of the Biography Channel.  The Biography Channel airs a diverse lineup, including documentaries on famous personalities and true-life stories of mystery and intrigue.

Weather Channel HD
Weather Channel HD is the HD simulcast of The Weather Channel, a 24-hour weather network.  The Weather Channel is the leading weather information provider, producing continuous, 24-hour national, regional and local weather-related video programming.
