Finally, Time Warner Cable subscribers in the Syracuse region can indulge in a few new HD options of their own. It's about time too, seeing that Rochester, Albany and a slew of areas around NYC (Manhattan notwithstanding) have been getting their share of late. Nevertheless, the cable carrier has announced today that four more HD options will be joining the EPG: Discovery HD (819), TLC HD (825), Animal Planet HD (831) and Science Channel HD (832). According to Time Warner spokesperson Jeff Unaitis, the "recent launch of switched-digital technology is allowing [the firm] to reclaim bandwidth and to add more content," so we're instantly curious to know if CableCARD users in the area are able to tune in to these additions.
