I just got word from the public relations department at Cox Cable that SNY HD will be available to subscribers on Wednesday, January 26th. SNY HD will be available on channel 786.

UConn on SNYMy understanding is that when the Big East Network broadcasts basketball games that most but not all of them will be available in HD. With that being said, the UConn Huskies men’s basketball team has four games remaining on SNY. They are as follows:

  • 1/25 – at Marquette
  • 1/29 – Louisville
  • 2/13 – Providence
  • 2/16 – Georgetown

I do know for fact that UConn’s game against Marquette on Tuesday night is in HD but since Cox won’t have SNY HD until Wednesday, it doesn’t do us any good.

For football games, it is my understanding that only the Big East Game of the Week is available in HD but I’ll have to do a little more digging to find more information.

This is also good news for the state’s New York Mets fans who have Cox as their cable system as y’all will be able to watch the Mets in HD all season long.
