As  you’re probably aware, this fall Spectrum is upgrading its entire  channel lineup to a digital-only signal. This change will allow Spectrum  to deliver more channels, better picture and sound quality as well as  increased Internet speeds to customers. As part of this nationwide  project, Spectrum will be relocating the Public, Educational and  Governmental (PEG) access channels to the 1300s section of the channel  line-up.  In most instances, we are already simulcasting these channels  in the 1300s.

I  wanted to provide you with this information in advance to make this  change as seamless as possible for your viewers/our customers.  Multiple  notifications will be sent to the municipalities and customers  outlining the details of this project, what’s needed and the timeline  for the changes.  

Below  is a message that we suggest may be helpful to run on the PEG  channel(s) to help get the word out about the upcoming changes. 

Suggested message

On October 30, 2018, Channel 2, 5, 7, 16 & 22 new locations will be on channel 1301, 1302, 1303, 1304, 1305 & 1306.  This will  be carried in the basic service tier.  Customers will be required to  have a Spectrum Receiver on each TV.  If you have an existing  set-top-box, digital transport adapter (DTA), or retail device with a  CableCARD on each TV, you will be unaffected by this change.  Otherwise,  to order your Spectrum Receiver(s), please go to Spectrum.com/digitalnow or call 1-844-278-3409 and Charter will ship a self-installation kit directly to your home at no additional cost.  You can also visit the Windham, Saco, Lewiston or Portland Cable Stores to pick up your equipment.  If you  need equipment, customers are eligible to receive a converter at no  additional charge for a limited period of time.  Please note, if  customers have TV(s) without equipment issued by Spectrum, you will lose  the ability to view channels.

Please let me know of any questions.
