Time Warner Cable today announced it will introduce a new, theme-based channel lineup in May and June to customers in New York City. The new lineup groups channels together intuitively, making it simpler and easier for customers to find the programming they want to view — and to discover other content.
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 John Quigley, regional 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 customers in the New Jersey; Mount Vernon, N.Y.; and on Staten Island will receive the lineup May 28. The new lineup will launch in Queens on June 3, Brooklyn on June 5, southern Manhattan on June 10 and northern Manhattan on June 12.
