Mediacom Digital Channel Changes
Mediacom has made some changes to its digital channel assignments which will affect subscribers who do not use a Mediacom cable box. Dubuque's five public, educational, and governmental (PEG) channels have moved to new digital channels. This letter from Mediacom lists all the new channel assignments. CityChannel Dubuque is now digital channel 117.2, CityChannel Graphics is 117.3, the public access channel is 117.4, the shared educational channel is 117.5, and the Dubuque Community School District channel is now 117.6. Subscribers who use a Mediacom cable box will continue to see these channels at their normal locations (for instance, CityChannel Dubuque will remain channel 8 if you have a cable box). Subscribers who do not use a cable box should auto program their channels to ensure they are getting all the channels. The owner's manual for your television will tell you how.
