Time Warner Cable has added BeIN Sport, the new independent soccer/international sports network to its channel lineup in Los Angeles.

BeIN Sport, which also features a Spanish-language version, was launched in August. The network features international soccer leagues such as Spain's La Liga, Italy's Serie A, France's Ligue 1, as well as the South American World Cup Qualifiers and Copa America 2015. BeIN will also carry the away games of the U.S. Men's National Soccer Team in the qualifying rounds of the 2014 World Cup.

Aspire, the network from Los Angeles sports legend Ervin "Magic" Johnson, was added to Time Warner Cable's lineup as well, along with RLTV, BBC World News and MeTV. The cable op also added more high-definition channels, as Fox Deportes, Tennis Channel and MLB Strike Zone now feature HD offerings.
