New digital channels will carry live feeds from the Texas House and Senate during session
AUSTIN, December 12, 2012 – Starting December 14, Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC) will offer two digital video channels to carry live feeds of the Texas House and Senate to customers in the City of Austin. The channels were created to carry the legislative feeds during session, which no longer will be available through City of Austin Public, Education and Government channels.
Traditionally, City of Austin PEG channels carried House and Senate Chamber proceedings during legislative sessions as part of their programming content. Carriage bounced among four PEG channels based on programming needs of those channels. Technical changes triggered a need to find a new home for this programming.
“While we are not obligated to carry this programming, we believe our Austin customers are interested and will appreciate having it available to watch on television during the Session,” said Jon Gary Herrera, spokesperson for Time Warner Cable of Central Texas.
The Texas Legislative Channels can be found on:
Texas House of Representatives
The Texas legislative channels will be available in the City of Austin only. A Time Warner Cable converter box and subscription to Digital Basic will be required to view these channels anywhere outside the capitol complex. Customers can arrange for a digital box and service by calling 866-701-0795 or visiting Time Warner Cable offices in Austin at:
- North Austin – 12012 N. MoPac Expressway, Austin TX 78758
- Central Austin – 1000 E. 41st St., Suite 920, Austin, Texas 78751
- South Austin – 730 W. Stassney Lane, Suite 100, Austin TX 78745
