We knew that Time Warner Cable was pretty close to locking down some serious HD additions in Dayton and Cincinnati, Ohio, and now we've been informed that both system lineups are go for viewing. In Dayton, users will see SciFi HD (778), USA HD (779), Animal Planet HD (780), Science HD (781), ESPNews HD (782) and Golf Channel HD (783). Over in Cincy, locals will find the same networks but on different slots (detailed after the break). Happy New Year, indeed. [Disclosure: Engadget is part of the Time Warner family]
