Starting later this week, Time Warner Cable digital customers across the Piedmont will have to learn all new channel numbers to watch their favorite shows.
The new channel lineup will be sent out in two phases. Greensboro, High Point and eastern parts of the Triad began Tuesday, March 4. Winston-Salem and western parts of the TWC market will start Thursday, March 6.
WGHP will move to digital cable channel 1206. WGHP 8.2 will move to channel 1250.
WGHP will also still be on channel 10 on cable. The standard tier of channels from 1 to 99 will remain the same, and will continue to differ from one market to another.
TWC said that it will be changing the channel numbers and grouping channels by category. With the change, for instance, such entertainment channels as A&E, Comedy Central and BBC America will be put together in the 100s.
News channels such as Fox News, CNN and MSNBC will be in the 200s. The local broadcast channels will move from the 100 block to the 1200 block, but will also still be available in the lower tier on channels 2 to 16.
