Attention Time Warner Cable Customers: TWC launching theme-based lineup in Wilmington

Tuesday, March 25th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (NEWS RELEASE) — Time Warner Cable today announced it has launched a new, theme-based digital channel lineup to customers in Wilmington. 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.

WWAY NewsChannel 3 is now on channel 1200.

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 Digital TV customers in the Wilmington, Bladenboro, Brunswick County, Burgaw, Chadbourn, Elizabethtown, Lake Waccamaw, Pender County, Southport, Tabor City and Whiteville areas will receive the lineup March 25, with the new lineup taking effect in Jacksonville, Newport and Pink Hill on March 27.
