Time Warner Cable Launches New Theme-Based Channel Lineup (Raleigh)

New channel positions make programming easier to find

Release Date: 05/27/2010

Morrisville, NC – Time Warner Cable today announced the launch of a new digital channel lineup that increases ease and convenience for Digital Cable customers to locate channels and find specific programming.

The new digital lineup rearranges digital channels above 100 into easy-to-find categories based on programming type, such as sports, music, and kids & family. The lineup will launch in the Triangle and Fayetteville area beginning June 2nd (see full roll-out schedule below).  All Time Warner Cable digital customers across North and South Carolina will enjoy the new lineup by June 22nd. 

“Research has shown that our customers tend to watch particular types of programming rather than a particular channel,” said Brian Kelly, president, residential services, Time Warner Cable Carolinas. “Grouping channels that offer the same type of programming together will make it easier for our customers to find the shows they enjoy.”

The new channel lineup will be grouped as follows:
• 100s- Local Broadcasters & Local Programming
• 200s- Kids & Family, Learning & Discovery, Faith & Inspiration
• 300s- Entertainment, Home & Leisure, Shopping
• 400s- News & Information, Music
• 500s- Sports
• 600s- Movies
• 700s- Premiums, PPV & Events
• 800s- International
• 900s- Music Choice
• 1000s- On Demand
• 1100 and above- High Definition

For further convenience, customers can simply add a “1” to the digital channel number to find the HD version. For example, ESPN will be on channel 500, so the HD version will be found on 1500. 
 
The rollout of the new digital lineup will occur over three weeks.

The schedule is as follows:

June 2nd

Spring Lake
