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.

Channel lineups effective March 4: Archdale | Burlington | High Point, Jamestown | Greensboro | Randolph County, Candor, Biscoe, Star | Mebane | Rockingham County

Channel lineups effective March 6: Davidson County | King | Mocksville | Mount Airy | Winston-Salem | Surry, Yadkin, Stokes, Dobson, NC & Cana, VA

    Start cancelling your cable now because trust me, your bills are going to start increasing quickly and you will be stuck in a contract for an extended perod of time! Go back to the bunny ears at the top of windows!!!!

    Just got a price increase letter to start next month and now this. Looks like they are getting ready to turn things over to Comcast. This whole deals spells monopoly and higher prices but I am sure it will go through because they have taken care of things in Washington and Raleigh. Can you believe that North Carolina does not even regulate this big corporation so your complaints fall on deaf ears. But don’t worry they make up for their high prices with their bad service.
