New Digital Channel Lineup Will Be Simpler and Easier to Navigate
DVR and Parental Control Settings Transition Automatically
Time Warner Cable today announced it will introduce a new, theme-based digital channel lineup in December to customers in Buffalo. 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 Terence Rafferty, 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.
Most Time Warner Cable Digital TV customers in western New York will receive the new lineup Dec. 3, with the new lineup taking effect in the city of Buffalo, Dunkirk, Westfield, Olean, Wellsville and Ulysses on Dec. 5.
