Time Warner Cable News Buffalo is the Time Warner Cable News affiliate for Western New York. The 24-hour commercial cable news television station is carried on Time Warner Cable channel 9 throughout most of the region. It was initially seen in the city of Buffalo, New York on channel 14, then moved to channel 9 on the Buffalo cable system in late 2009. The network was launched as YNN Buffalo at 7 p.m. on March 25, 2009. It is a sister station to YNN Central New York in Syracuse; YNN Rochester in Rochester; YNN Capital Region in Albany; and the much larger NY1 in New York City; the stations share content with each other.

TWCN Buffalo provides weather every 10 minutes on the 1's of every hour, as well as local news and sports throughout the day and breaking news as events warrant.

The channel is available on Time Warner Cable systems throughout Western New York, as well as on Time Warner Cable's Rochester cable system on channel 1277. TWCN Buffalo became available on the HD tier of both cable systems in early 2010. A modified version of the channel, Cable 8 News (C8N), airs in the Jamestown, New York market, with a mixture of local news content and content from TWCN Buffalo.
