All New CABLE TV Lineup

We’re excited to announce that we have an all-new lineup coming to you in July! Instead of offering both a Standard Definition (SD) and High Definition (HD) lineup, all channels will be delivered in HD quality (when available) and at no additional charge. If you are currently paying $11/month for the HD lineup, that charge will expire after your June bill.

  • For example, CBS/KDLO is currently offered in SD (ch 4) and HD (ch 602). With our new lineup in July, ch 4 will be delivered in HD to all cable customers, at no additional charge. Ch 602 will no longer exist.

While streamlining our lineup, we also used your feedback to relocate channels so similar programing is grouped together. If you love the classics on Antenna TV, be sure to check out some of the classics on INSP, ThisTV and MeTV also – now all conveniently located together.

While we believe you will really enjoy the HD quality and ease of your new lineup, it will require you to relearn new channel numbers for some of your favorite networks. We apologize for the inconvenience but hope you agree the new HD lineup will be worth it. In addition, those of you with Cloud DVR will need to check your series recordings as many of them will need to be rescheduled after July 16th due to new channel placement. All recordings up until that date will be safe and available to watch at your leisure.

  • For example, if you have a series recording set for America’s Got Talent on ch 603HD, you will need to set up a new series recording for AGT on ch 5 since 603HD will no longer be a working channel after July 16. Or, if you have a series recording on Discovery on ch 23 or 622HD, you will need to set up a new series recording as Discovery is being moved from channels 23 and 622HD to ch 59.

The changeover to your new lineup will take place on Tuesday, July 16, 2019. Reorganizing the channels will take most of the day, so don’t be alarmed if some of your channels show a black screen. We will send a message to your Cable TV box to signal when all of the changes have been made. If you are experiencing any issues following the message, please call us.

Please click here to view the new Cable TV lineup. If you have any questions, please call or email us now so we can help make the transition for you in July as easy as possible. We appreciate your patience as we work to improve your TV viewing experience!
