The channel you are speaking of is one of Time Warner's local sports channels. They typically carry several hours of the America One Sports network (women's/men's hockey, volleyball, swimming, soccer) each day along with some locally produced sports shows or high school/college games. They also act as a clearinghouse for overflow games when needed. It's not a channel that DirecTV would pick up.
The TW sports channel in my area carries a few U-Albany Football/Basketball games, a few Syracuse games, syracuse football/basketball shows, stupid roundtable discussion shows with TV anchors that got fired years ago, game replays, and some football games from ESPN Plus on Saturdays.
