Mediacom customers looking for MyTV programming on channel 16 will instead find it on channel 3 starting Tuesday, October 9, 2012.

The switch was scheduled to happen sometime between midnight and 5 a.m.

Mediacom customers with digital TVs will still see MyTV on channel 8-3.

The switch is part of a larger channel lineup change that moves seven channels to new positions.  C-SPAN moves from channel 2 to channel 96 and some HD viewers will see WGH-HD move from 117-2 to 89-2.  Mediacom’s lineup in Maquoketa and Preston also includes Cedar Rapids-based KGAN, which will move to channel 2. 

After the new channel alignment happens, Mediacom customers with cable connected directly to digital televisions are encouraged to re-scan those televisions so they recognize stations placed on previously-unused channels.  Re-scanning is not necessary if you use a digital adapter or digital cable set-top box. 

Formerly known as WBQD; WQAD MyTV 8.3 is a sub-channel of WQAD-TV and broadcasts the MyNetworkTV primetime schedule as well as various syndicated programs like Rules of Engagement; Meet the Browns; That 70’s Show and more.
