Tuesday morning, your Time Warner Cable channel lineup will change. The company hopes it will help viewers better navigate all of the channels and content the system has to offer. Our Candace Hopkins has a preview of what you can expect.
SOUTHERN TIER, N.Y. -- Time Warner Cable takes the wraps off the new channel lineup for Southern Tier customers starting October 22nd.
Channels one through 99 will not change at all, but digital cable customers, which is three-quarters of all TWC subscribers, will soon see channels100 and above grouped by genre in categories like news and information, kids and family and sports.
"We've found that a lot of times, our customers view the same types of programming, so this will allow them to not have to hunt anymore for the types of things they're looking for, they will find it all in one place," said Joli Plucknette-Farmen, Time Warner Cable Spokesperson.
So what about your DVR? Will it have to be re-programmed for the new channels?
Plucknette-Farmen said, "All scheduled recordings that a viewer or customer has scheduled with their Dvr will not be impacted, so after the change takes effect, all of those recorded programs should continue to record as usual."
These changes will also affect the HD system. If you have an HD converter, there's no more searching for a specific HD channel. For example, if you turn on YNN on Channel 200, you will automatically be routed to the HD version of our feed."
Plucknette-Farmen said, "We're showing the customer our best picture and they no longer need to remember duplicate channels to get the exact same programming."
Eventually the changes will be rolled out nationwide in all Time Warner Cable service areas, meaning you'll find the same digital channel lineup, no matter where you go.
YNN will still be on Channel 200 after the changeover. Our On Demand Channel will be on 1020 and our 24-Hour Sky Tracker Doppler Radar will be on Channel 213.
