FOCUS, Channel 49 Exclusively Digital On July 6

June 17, 2011


We were recently notified by Oceanic Time Warner Cable that on July 6th,Olelo’s FOCUS 49 will move to digital cable and will no longer be part of the cable line-up for O`ahu’s analog cable viewers.  We realize that this is very short notice and requested that the transition be delayed, but unfortunately, Oceanic was unable to accommodate our request.

Viewers that have digital service, and are currently using a set top box to access cable channels, will continue to be able to view ‘Olelo’s FOCUS 49 on digital channel 49, and no further action is required.  However, viewers that do not have a set top box as part of their cable service will need one to view ‘Olelo’s FOCUS 49 after July 6th.

As part of this transition, Oceanic is required to provide free digital set top boxes to analog-only customers.  Analog customers wishing to receive a free digital set top box can call Oceanic at 643-2100.

For those of you with shows on ‘Olelo’s FOCUS 49, we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience that Oceanic’s action will create for you. ‘Olelo will be running frequent messages on all of our channels to advise as many viewers as possible about the change. We encourage you to also provide your viewers with this information during your show, on your website, and/or via viewer e-mail lists.

If you have questions or need additional information please talk with your Community Media Center staff, or call our Programming and Marketing Manager, Jack Bates at 237-2135.
