Why Do Channel Numbers Differ?

Unfortunately, the issue of channel numbers varying based on location is not just limited to Cox. In fact, it is the same issue with nearly all the cable service providers. And all channels, like HBO. And the issue is older than you might think. It all dates back to when cable services were new.

Instead of large cable service providers offering cable packages like we have today, cable was provided by local operators. These small businesses were assigned specific regions. They would receive the signals for each channel available at the time. Then they would redistribute those signals to their customers in the area. Before they re-distributed the cable signals, they would have to allocate channel numbers to frequencies.

That meant they could select channel numbers themselves. Even though larger service providers bought those small operators later, the channel numbers remain the same. That’s because changing all the channel numbers across the country would result in more chaos and confusion. Can you imagine if all the channels in the Cox channel lineup suddenly changed? How frustrating would that be?
