Channel 17 is Moving to Channel 1087 - on the Comcast System

April 20, 2020

Changes are coming to your cable dial!
Town Meeting TV can now be seen on Channel 1087 on the Comcast cable system. After May 28th, Comcast channel 17 will no longer carry Town Meeting TV programming and viewers will have to tune into the new 4-digit channel for our local content.

Burlington Telecom viewers will see no changes, and will continue to find us on channel 17, 217 (in HD), and channel 317 (for live meeting coverage).

Stay tuned for other exciting changes!

Why the change?
The Vermont Access Network worked hard to level the playing field on your cable system.
Through our advocacy work, we lobbied for inclusion on the Interactive Program Guide.
We want you to access this guide, find out what is coming up and program your DVRs!
We won the fight for inclusion on the Interactive Program Guide, but only by agreeing to move our current channel location to a new lineup affectionately referred to as the PEG (Public, Educational, Government) access neighborhood. If you have Comcast, you will now find your regular access channels (15, 16 and 17) up in the 'thousands' neighborhood. See the chart below for the full lineup.
