Oxygen, Sundance, Wedding Central Get HD Berths in NYC

Oxygen, Sundance Channel and Wedding Central launched HD versions on Time Warner Cable in New York City and environs.

Oxygen joins several other NBC Universal-owned channels with an HD outlet on the cable system, on channel 712 in the city and channel 764 in TWC's Northern New Jersey operations that are within the system's boundaries.

Rainbow Media-owned Sundance Channel -- which announced a new slate of non-fiction programming yesterday -- launched systemwide on channel 290 and Wedding Central launched systemwide on channel 794, a system representative said.

Oxygen put out a release about the launch in the advertising media capital.

"Time Warner Cable is a valued partner, and we're thrilled to have their support in including Oxygen HD as part of their product offering in the New York metropolitan area," Bridget Baker, President, TV Networks Distribution, at NBC Universal said in it. "We believe Time Warner Cable's customers -- our viewers -- will greatly benefit from this enhanced HD viewing experience."

"Oxygen has incredible momentum and we've made a significant investment in original programming to further fuel our growth with upcoming launches of All About Aubrey (pictured, right), Tori and Dean: sTORIbook Weddings, The World According to Paris and The Glee Project, Jason Klarman, president of Oxygen Media, added in the release. "And delivering our programs in HD will provide our audience with an even richer viewing experience."
