Why this table?

Some years ago Service Electric Cable TV published their QAM channel numbers on their web site allowing those of us without a cable box to see what was on each channel.

 

The QAM channel number chart disappeared a couple of years ago causing me to develop this table for the Lehigh Valley PA, not Wilkes-Barre PA or Hunterdon NJ (but they're close).

 

Around January of 2013 a link appeared near the top of this page of the SECTV web site that leads to a pdf listing of the QAM channel numbers. The chart has changed since introduced but has never been easy to use and sometimes hasn't included all the available free QAM channels.

 

You can print this page and keep the reference handy. And you can sort this table by any column. Just click on the column heading. Clicking again will reverse the sort order. You can print the different sorted versions so each column appears in order in the different versions.

 

Got an iPad you keep next to your TV chair? Just bookmark this page and it'll be ready when you need it. Looking for the FX channel? Just click on the Station Name column heading to sort by those names, scroll down to the F's to find the channels where you can see FX.

 

Notice that the same content usually appears on several channels. For example, analog channel 6 (ABC in Philadelphia) is also on channel 076- 6 in digital, standard definition form and on channel 109- 3 in digital, high definition form.

 

My table is not all inclusive. I don't have any premium channels so I don't have those listed. If you don't have a cable box you can't get them either. Also, I'm not a big sports fan so may have missed a few of those. You send 'em and I'll add 'em.

 

If you find this chart useful, have any corrections or find something new contact me at grinlap@yahoo.com. I'm curious to see if anyone else has a use for this chart. Thanks.


Update History

 

10/22/14 - This is probably the last update for the chart. Sectv is modifying their system to require some sort of cable box to receive anything. The cheapest is about $2/month and you need one per set. This change over is being implemented by areas. Many parts of the system have already been converted. Mine has not but will be soon. However, I'm moving soon and will not be in the Sectv service area. This page will be taken down a little while after I get settled in my new location.

 

7/23/14 - LV Weather is on 74-4 SD.

 

6/21/14 - Channel FXX had been added on 102-11, SD. There is currently no HD or analog version. Thanks GN. The analog versions of Game Show Network, Ch 87 & Nat Geo, Ch 90 have been removed. These channels are now digital only. Sectv says there is an HD version of Telemundo but it's not on their channel lineup yet. I'll post the QAM channel number when I find it.

 

6/17/14 - The analog versions of CMT (81), AMC (83), & TCM (84) have been removed. The digital channels are still available. Thanks RF.

 

4/30/14 - Sectv now has a box at the top of the channel listings that allows you to sort their list by channel, tier, or QAM channel. This link will show the listing sorted by QAM. There are 2 problems with this listing; it does not quite sort correctly. Notice the sequence 67.1, 67.10, 67.2, etc. Channel 67.10 should come after 67.9. If you sort by Tier and scroll down to High Definition Channels you will see many channels with no QAM number. All (I think) of those with the far right column blank do indeed have a QAM channel and can be seen on your TV w/o a cable box. CNN for example is on 129-5.

 

4/15/14 - Channels 104-6 SD, Shalom TV and 68-11 SD, Tuff TV have been added. Lehigh Valley Weather is no longer on 73-4 but I don't know where it's gone. Thanks SC.

 

3/20/14 - The Lifetime Movie Network is no longer on analog channel 85. Thanks RF.

 

3/9/14 - In Demand sports rebroadcasts are on channels 135-1 thru 135-10.

 

2/28/14 - PCN  has been removed from analog channel 7. Sectv's chart shows it on analog channel 53. It has not appeared there yet on my system. Me-TV is now available on analog channel 7 as well as 102-7. LV accuweather has moved from 73-4 to 68-11. Analog channel 79, the Travel Channel is gone. Thanks RF.

 

1/1/14 - SoapNet, 76-8, has been discontinued by ABC and is no longer available anywhere.

 

12/17/13 - I've recently discovered that SECTV is now listing the QAM channel numbers on their channel line page. This should be the same as my chart but perhaps not a convienient since it's not sortable.

 

11/23/13 - Fox Sports 1 is also on SD channel 86-4. Thanks HH.

 

9/29/13 - WPIX 11 HD is on 126-3 & Retro TV is on 126-4. I don't know if this is a real change or just something I missed before. The Style Network, 67-10, has changed to the Esquire Network. Thanks RF.

 

9/14/13 - Added channel 102-1 which seems to be cable box channel 900. You can see what channel changes have been made recently and get instruction in using Pay per View. Unfortunately the channel changes mention only the cable box channels but at least you'll know something has changed. Thanks SC.

 

9/6/13 - Seems I overlooked 10 HD channels in my last update. I've added them back so if your favorite HD channel went missing in the last update check the chart again. Thanks to SC for catching this omission.

 

9/2/13 - Lots of changes. Some channels have been moved to the High Def Tier and require a subscription to a paid group. Some have been moved to the Ultimate Digital Tier and require a cable box.

About a month or so ago sectv reduced the price of the Full Channel Line Up with Internet by $10. If you haven't taken advantage of that call them. You can get any Internet speed at a comparible lower price. They may have reasoned that adding back the Ultimate Digital cost will get you back to slightly more than you were paying.

 

7/31/13 - The Science Channel and Destination America have been moved to the Ultimate Digital Channels group which means they are now scrambled.

Also, the SECTV QAM chart was revised on 7/23/13 but now does not list many of the high def channels.

 

7/9/13 - ION HD is on 89-1, Univision HD is on 89-2, MSNBC HD is on 89-3. Note that 89 was an analog channel that is now a digital channel. This means you might not see the new channels unless you allow your TV to rescan all the channels. You will probably loose any favorites you have set.

HSN HD is on 49-1, PCN HD is on 49-2, Living Well Network HD is on 49-3.

The SECTV QAM chart was updated on 7/5/13. Thanks CK.

 

6/19/13 - Added MSNBC HD on 131-4. Nope, it's gone again. Several of us are looking. Let me know if you spot it.

 

6/13/13 - Made a correction to chart; Wppx-61, ION isn't on 91-1. Thanks CK.

 

5/22/13 - A chart user e-mailed me that Disney Jr is now on 86-5. In the process of checking this out I discovered that several SD channels on 59-n have moved to 86-n. These are EWTN, 86-1; Lifetime, 86-2; Inspiration Network, 86-3; Speed Network, 86-4; Disney Jr, 86-5; Fox News, 86-10. Additional channels are Trinity Broadcasting Network, 86-6; Advertising, 86-7; Sectv Time & Weather, 86-8. Thanks for the clue MS. Lifetime HD, 120-1 is gone. Let me know if you find it.

 

5/19/13 - Disney Jr, 59-5, is gone. As far as I know it's not on any other channel. Let me know if you see it. Thanks NB.

 

5/15/13 - Lifetime gone from 120-1 HD & 59-2 SD. Still on 44. Haven't located digital versions yet. Analog Weather Channel moved from 15 to 59. Sectv Time & Weather now on 15. Fox News gone from 59-10 SD. Thanks JK.

 

4/25/13 - Shop NBC is now available in HD on 091-1 and Wppx-61, ION is available on analog channel 19. Thanks DK.

 

4/19/13 - Sectv has removed analog channels 86, 88 & 89; Comedy Chan, Disney Jr, E! Entertainment. These are available only in digital form now. The recently added channels H2, Biography, and CBS College Sports are all scrambled.

 

3/30/13 - HBO seems to be gone to scramble land. Both 119-1 and 98-1 are scrambled on my set.

 

3/26/13 - HBO no longer on 119-1 in HD but is on 98-1 in SD. Thanks LR

 

2/28/13 - Chan 91 & 92 no longer Speed Network and Outdoor Chan. 91-1 is now ION HD.

 

2/19/13 - Incorporated any differences with the recently discovered QAM chart on the SECTV web site and those sent to me by several users of this table.
