Time Warner rearranging digital channels
Time Warner Cable today announced it will introduce a new, theme-based digital channel lineup in March to customers in the Charlotte area.
Channels will be grouped into themes like Entertainment, News & Info, Sports Music, Kids & Teens and Premiums. Likewise, On Demand content will be found on channels 1000 and above in categories like Primetime On Demand, Entertainment On Demand, Kids On Demand and Music On Demand.
“Our new, theme-based lineup will make it much simpler and easier for our customers to navigate through the lineup,” said Mike Smith, area vice president of operations at Time Warner Cable. “And with the new lineup, customers with an HD box will automatically receive the HD feed of the corresponding standard-definition channel, providing the best picture available.”
All parental control and DVR settings will transition automatically, so customers don’t have to worry about reprogramming their parental control settings or losing recordings of their favorite shows.
There is no change in channels 1 to 99, and no change in which channels are part of a customer’s Time Warner Cable TV package.
Time Warner Cable digital TV customers in the Charlotte, Albemarle, Clover, Gastonia, Metrolina, Monroe, Rockingham, Salisbury, Shelby and Wadesboro areas will receive the lineup March 18, with the new lineup taking effect in Huntersville, Iredell, Mooresville and Statesville on March 20.
