Wilmington, NC (April 8 , 2010) – 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 Wilmington area beginning April 12th. All Time Warner Cable digital customers across North and South Carolina will enjoy the new lineup by June.
“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 in the Coastal area will occur between April 12-14.
The schedule is as follows:
Southport and parts of Brunswick County
Wilmington and surrounding communities in Brunswick County
Burgaw and surrounding communities in Pender County
Greenville/New Bern DMA
Pink Hill and surrounding communities in Duplin County
The theme-based channel lineup is the latest enhancement in making Time Warner Cable services simple and easy to navigate. For more information, customers can visit
