Michigan TV All Digital

Charter TV in Albee, Bridgeport, Buena Vista, Carrollton, Kochville, Maple Grove ,Saginaw and Spaulding Townships in Michigan and the city of Saginaw and Zilwaukee City Michigan is going 100% digital!  All analog broadcast channels will be removed and only the HD & Digital versions of the channels will be available on Tuesday September 17th, 2013.  All affected TVs will need Charter-issued digital equipment to view all channels in your lineup.

TVs without Charter-issued digital equipment will lose access to Charter TV. If you already have Charter-issued digital equipment (Set-Top Box or CableCARD) on all of your TVs, you don't need to do anything for the all-digital upgrade. However, if you have TVs that are connected directly to Charter service without digital equipment, you will lose access to Charter on those TVs.

All digital set-top boxes will be activated at the same time.

To activate your set-top box simply follow the steps below:

  1. Call 1-877-764-4054
  2. You will then be guided through the activation steps
  3. Typically you will be able to watch your favorite television stations within 10 minutes of activation while your guide continues to load. In rare instances it may take up to 45 minutes to activate your set-top box.
