Time Warner Cable Sports Channel is a regional sports network operated by the Milwaukee and Eastern Wisconsin cable franchise of Time Warner Cable. Broadcasting on Channel 32 exclusively on Time Warner systems in the Milwaukee and Green Bay/Fox Cities areas, the channel launched in February 2007. This is not to be confused with WACY, Green Bay's actual broadcast Channel 32, which airs on TWC channel 83 on Northeastern Wisconsin systems.

Currently the channel features a mix of local sports roundtable discussion shows, UW-Milwaukee Panthers sporting events, programs featuring the former sports directors of several local television stations and newspapers, coaches' shows, high school sports, and other minor professional sports within the Milwaukee and Green Bay franchise areas of Time Warner Cable. The channel airs the OnTV4U informercial network during the overnight hours. Until 2013 the network also aired Marquette Golden Eagles sports, including men's college basketball games from ESPN Plus, rebroadcasts of ESPN Marquette games, other Marquette sports, and archived Marquette sports programming; this was discontinued that year due to the new Big East Conference contract with Fox Sports 1 which will see some games sub-licensed to Fox Sports Wisconsin locally, and the athletic department considering taking their coach's shows online-only or discontinuing them altogether.[1]

On March 28, 2014, Comcast, which is purchasing Time Warner Cable, announced that as a condition of the merger, Time Warner Cable's Wisconsin markets, along with Comcast's lone Wisconsin system in Manitowoc, would be sold to Charter Communications or be operated by Charter in a "spin-off" company. It is unknown if the sale goes through how TWCSC would be affected by the sale to Charter, which would hold the vast majority of Wisconsin's cable homes; Fox Sports Wisconsin launched an "alternate feed" channel in 2012 which has continually added content as time went on which is supported by both Charter and Time Warner. Charter currently operates only one sports network directly with Comcast in a joint venture, Comcast/Charter Sports Southeast.[2]
