Not all Time Warner Cable subscribers were affected by the problems getting the debut of MLB Network on the air Thursday night.

According to Peter Taubkin, vice-president of government relations and public affairs for the Albany Division of Time Warner Cable, the areas affected were Schenectady, Troy, Queensbury and Saratoga.

"[The] issue was a zoning conflict which temporarily limited the feed to the Albany area," Taubkin wrote in an e-mail this morning.

Service came back on at 10:27 p.m. for Troy residents. It didn't come back on for Schenectady subscribers until nearly 11 p.m.

It wasn't back on as of 7 a.m. this morning in Fonda, just a screen saying "Channel not available".

it's working up here in the north country, I watched Don Larsen's perfect game and tonight they are showing a game from 1975 when Dave Chalk had three singles for the Angels (ok, that's sarcasm and big credits to anyone who actually remembers Dave Chalk)
