Time Warner Cable today announced it has launched a new, theme-based channel lineup 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. Additionally, customers with an HD box will automatically receive the HD feed of the corresponding standard-definition channel, providing the best picture available.
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.
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 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, northern Manhattan on June 10 and southern Manhattan on June 12.

- Enhanced Video: an all-digital network for a crisper picture and sound
- New navigation and On Demand portals with up to 75,000 hours of content
