For the second consecutive year, coverage of all men's basketball games, and select other live events listed above, will be available to Time Warner subscribers throughout New York State.
Time Warner Cable Sports offers its coverage in the Capital District on channel 3 or channel 1803, as well as On Demand 48 hours after the final buzzer. The game will also air live in New York City, Hudson Valley, Central, Northern New York and on systems in the Southern Tier. Check local listings for exact channel listings for Time Warner Cable Sports, as the position varies by location. In Western New York locations (Buffalo/Rochester systems) the games will be offered live or tape-delayed based on other sports programming commitments and on the systems' "Local on Demand" channels. Again, subscribers are encouraged to check their local schedule for weekly updates.
The road games at Niagara (Feb. 9) and Canisius (Feb. 11) will be produced by Time Warner Cable's sister stations and offered across the state.
"We are proud to have Siena College as an anchor of our local sports coverage on Time Warner Cable Sports," Greg Bobbitt, the director of programming & production for Time Warner Cable Sports said. "Our partnership continues to deliver unparalleled local sports programming for our customers and Siena fans across New York State."
Siena fans will be pleased to know that their favorite Time Warner Cable Sports personalities Robert Lee and Tom Huerter will be on hand to provide the play-by-play and color commentary they have come to love for the Siena home men's basketball games. Time Warner Cable Sports will follow each men's basketball production with live postgame coverage, including any postgame press conferences.
"This is the type of partnership that Siena needs to continue to engage its stakeholders and advance in college basketball. It helps to position our program favorably among other Mid-Majors across the country," Siena Director of Athletics John D'Argenio said. "Athletics enhances the reputation of the College regionally and nationally and this expanded partnership is a reflection of that growth. By televising 16 basketball games (men and women), seven coaches shows, and all five home men's lacrosse games across New York State on Time Warner Cable Sports, we will expand the College's brand, attract new fans and energize our current supporters."
Some fans attending Saints' games in person at Times Union Center will enjoy an exclusive experience in the form of the Time Warner Cable Sports Lounge. The lounge debuted last season and is included in select Premium Seat Program packages. It features all the luxuries and amenities of a typical premium section, but with the hometown touch only the Saints and Time Warner Cable can offer.
For more information on Siena's Premium Seating Program, fans can contact the Siena Fan Relations Office at 518-487-2202.
From the comfort of your living room to the excitement of the Times Union Center, Siena Athletics and Time Warner Cable Sports have you covered this season.
