Music Choice is Adding, Removing, and Renaming Channels
 

On December 10, Music Choice will add new channels to the lineup. Many channel names and locations will change channel numbers on the Cox channel lineup.  They will also be removing one channel (Classic Alternative) from the lineup. 
 

Details

Music Choice channels being renamed on the lineup includes:

  • Retro Rock --> Rock Hits
  • Dance/Electronica --> Dance/EDM
  • True Country --> Country Hits

Channels are being added to the lineup:

  • Pop Rhythmic
  • Pop Country
  • Y2K
  • Love Songs
  • Teen MC

 

FAQ

Can’t Cox negotiate to keep Classic Alternative on the Cox lineup?

As of December 10, Classic Alternative will no longer exist so Cox does not have the ability to carry the channel. This was based on a change made by Music Choice.  

Will my bill go up because of the new channels?

There will be no impact to your bill.  Prices are based on tiers of service, not individual channels.
