Charter to Drop The Sportsman Channel

Charter Spectrum is informing former Time Warner Cable subscribers that the Sportsman Channel will be pulled from their lineups, effective on or around October 30.

The channel has been available in the ‘Sports View’ and ‘Digi Tier 2’ plans of customers who subscribed to Time Warner Cable prior to the Charter-TWC merger. (For now, Charter is still permitting the former TWC subscribers to keep their plans if they desire, although Charter has a different offering of packages. )

The decision to eliminate the Sportsman Channel from the ‘legacy’ TWC packages means that Charter will not offer it at all; the cable operator does not include the Sportsman Channel in its ‘Spectrum’ lineup of programming packages.

Charter is not giving a reason for the cancellation in the notice being sent to customers.

The Sportsman Channel features shows about hunting, fishing and other outdoor activities.
