Time Warner Adds GoodLife in N.Y., N.J.


GoodLife TV Network will join Time Warner Cable’s digital lineup on channel 153 in New York and New Jersey Oct. 8.

Through the carriage contract, terms of which were not disclosed, the baby boomer-targeted service said it will add some 700,000 Time Warner Cable subscribers, raising its overall base to 10 million.

In New York, GoodLife will reach viewers in the New York City boroughs of Manhattan, Staten Island, Queens and Brooklyn; neighboring Westchester County city Mount Vernon; and Sullivan, Orange, Ulster, Duchess, Greene and Delaware counties.

The deal also extends to the MSO’s subscribers in Bergen and Hudson counties in New Jersey.

“Time Warner Cable New York recognizes that we provide a compelling and differentiated service for baby boomers and their families,” GoodLife president and chief operating officer Larry Meli said in a prepared statement. “GoodLife TV will bring back to the New York metropolitan area some of America’s favorite series from the past three decades.”

The distribution news comes on the heels of a recent three-year agreement with Warner Bros. Domestic Cable Distribution in which the network added The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Kung Fu, China Beach, I’ll Fly Away, My Favorite Martian, Chico and the Man, The Courtship of Eddie’s Father, The Girl from U.N.C.L.E., Harry O and the Our Gang Comedies to its lineup.
