TBS, TNT HD shows shifting 3 hours, DVRs impacted

TBS, TNT HD shows shifting 3 hours, DVRs impacted

A note for BendBroadband TV customers:

On Wednesday, your TBS HD (616) and TNT HD (617) channels will change from an East Coast feed to a West Coast feed to align with their associated SD feeds.

What this means for you:

Alignment: TBS HD and TNT HD will follow the same schedule as TBS SD (16) and TNT SD (17). No longer, for example, will the same episode of “The Big Bang Theory” air on TBS HD at 5 p.m. and TBS SD at 8 p.m. Sheldon, Penny, Raj, Howard and Leonard will air at 8 p.m. on both. Bazinga!

Recording: To prevent disruptions in your recording, any programs scheduled to record on TBS and TNT HD should be deleted and reset after the feed change happens on Wednesday, March 1.

If you have any questions about this change, please call our 24/7 tech support crew at 541-382-5551.
