Time Warner Cable Moves The Beavercreek Channel to Channel 99.1
The Beavercreek Channel (formerly Beavercreek Channel 5) on Time Warner Cable has been converted to a digital-only signal. If you currently do not have a cable box and are using an older standard definition television, you will need to get a digital conversion box to continue to see The Beavercreek Channel. You may contact Time Warner Cable at 937-294-6800 to get a converter box. TW says that they will provide one for residents for no cost if you request one by January 12, 2014. Beginning January 2015, TW will assess a fee of $1.50 per month for the converter.
If you have an HDTV and do not have a cable box or cable card, you will be able to watch The Beavercreek Channel, but it will be seen on channel 99.1. You will have to reprogram the TVs to find the channels; this is usually done using the menu feature and finding the auto scan or auto tuning function.
If you already have a Time Warner-provided converter box, you should not notice any change.
The School’s access channel will also be affected. Again, if you already have a converter box from Time Warner, you should not notice a change. If you have an HDTV but no converter box, rescan the channels to find the School’s new channel on channel 99.7. If you have neither an HDTV or a converter box, you need to get a converter from TW.
Other channels that will be viewable only via a digital converter are C-SPAN, EWTN, Golf, Lifetime Movie Network, The Weather Channel, WGN, WKOI (TBN), WRCX, WWRD, and all public, education and government access channels throughout the region.
This change is outside of our control. Time Warner Cable eventually will convert all of its channels to the newer digital delivery system as most other terrestrial cable TV systems across the country already have. For now, though, only the channels listed above will be affected.
