Why do Channel Numbers Differ?

The reason why different locations have different channel numbers is a little complicated. It started when cable was still something new. Back then, cable operators were local. They had a small radius of operation. These local cable companies cold set channel numbers as they liked.

When larger cable companies came around, they bought out these small cable operators. They could have unified the channel numbers then, but that would have caused chaos. All over the USA people wouldn’t know where to find their favorite channels.

The technology was still not as advanced as it is today. So customer support would have been a nightmare as well. So companies decided to leave channel numbers as they were. And instead, decided to group newer channels together. So now, you will find that the newer channels all share the same channel numbers, like newer pay per view channels.

This is not just an issue with HBO or Lifetime Movie Network on Charter Spectrum. This is an issue with all channels and all cable service providers.

About Lifetime

Lifetime launched in 1984. It was formed as a replacement for Daytime and the Cable Health Network. In the early years, the channel faced viewership issues. It suffered from low viewership because most people believed that the channel focused on religious content. In fact, it reported losing $36 million in its first two years.

By 1985 Lifetime tried to rebrand itself as Talk Television. And it shuffled its programming to include a lineup of talk shows. By 1988 Lifetime decided that things weren’t working as they should be. So they decided to hire Patricia Fili as the head of programming. She changed nearly 60 percent of Lifetime’s programming. That too, within the first three years of her tenure.

Patricia Fili is credited with turning the channel around. She influenced the channel’s programming to attract targeted women successfully.
