Turner Broadcasting System, Inc., and Time Warner Cable have negotiated a deal to carry truTV HD just in time for Time Warner Cable customers to catch the Syracuse University game Friday night against Indiana State. truTV HD is on channel 859.

You can watch all 67 NCAA Division I Men's College Basketball Tournament games on Time Warner Cable. They're being shown LIVE on four national networks CBS, TBS, TNT and truTV as part of a new NCAA agreement with CBS Sports and Turner.

To ensure fans can view all of the early-round games, tip-offs are being staggered to accommodate the live coverage. Time Warner Cable digital TV customers can press A on their remotes for the Access Menu, which has a MARCH MADNESS category and quick access to all the networks.

They've had an agreement in place for Tru TV HD for a while now going back to when Time Warner Inc owned Time Warner Cable, they just never had it in this many areas. TW Rochester was supposed to get Tru TV HD in Aug 2009 when TW really started to push HD, but they never did add it...until Yesterday. Now maybe one day they'll actually add Mav HD like they were supposed to do a few months ago. This makes 121 real HD channels now.

Also added was SD digital subchannel, The Cool TV which is a 24/7 music video channel. Pretty cool actually. I don't see Dish, DirecTV or Verizon Fios carrying it. Once again, TW comes though for subscribers.
