6 Time Warner Cable channels to go digital

ORANGE — Time Warner Cable customers who still utilize an older, analog television will experience a change in their cable service very soon.

Time Warner Cable has announced it will no longer provide analog television signals for several channels on its basic cable and extended basic cable packages next month. According to Time Warner, six channels will be affected.

Signals for channel 4, Local Government Access; channel 7, Educational Access; channel 19, Shop NBC; channel 65, CMT; channel 68, SoapNet; and channel 72, Oxygen, will switch from analog to digital service by March 15 and no longer be available for customers with an analog television unless you have a digital box.

Customers who still plug directly into the cable with their older analog televisions will be able to view the remaining 13 channels on the basic cable package and the more than 70 remaining channels on the extended basic cable plan.

However, Time Warner is not looking to leave its customer base without the programming it currently pays for on a monthly basis.

Time Warner will offer a free digital converter box to customers who are affected and do not own a digital television or have digital service.

If you are currently subscribed to the basic cable plan, you will be eligible to receive a digital converter box free for five years. Customers of the extended basic cable package will be eligible to receive a free digital converter box for one year.

As an added bonus, customers who are eligible to receive the digital converter box will also get several extra features which are included with the box, such as Video on Demand, music channels and the interactive programming guide to view upcoming channel programs.

Subscribers who will be affected by the service change may call Time Warner to make arrangements to pick up a digital box from one of the several area Time Warner locations or have a digital converter box delivered to their service location.
