So, I happened to turn on my Spectrum on my Apple TV, and noticed that Spectrum News (NC-Charlotte) is now Spectrum News 1. Anyone heard anything about this change? Everything else is the same, but after searching the internet, I didn't see anything about it. (I know it isn't earth shattering news, but I am extremely curious why there was a change!)

There was a notice that they were moving the NC channel positions to 1 today and renaming it...seems like they're going to make Channel 1 corporate-wide the Spectrum News home.

Earlier today I saw an FB post by Ashley Claster.  She is saying that the DFW area is getting a Spectrum News 1 channel starting the middle of next month.  So far I'm only finding more social media about it from her, although she claims another reporter has been hired to work with her.  Her FB post shows a picture of Ashley holding a Spectrum News microphone.  Her Twitter post shows a pic of Ashley holding a Spectrum News 1 cap and standing in front of the downtown Dallas skyline.  I'd like to hope this is true, but her posts seem to be the only thing I'm finding about a DFW news channel launch.

KC hasen't got it yet on Sprectrum/Comcast and so on that pick up Sprectrumsportskc channels.

Spectrum 1 will never be carried on Comcast as it’s a competitor and it’s designed as a marketing ploy.

Spectrum News 1 DFW is running (I’m watching it right now at my parents in McKinney). 
 

From what I’ve read, the mornings and late afternoons are region specific, but I suspect middays are state-wide - I’m seeing stories based out of Austin/San Antonio (2pm CT), rather than local DFW info... 

 

When I get a chance, I’ll login and run 2 streams (Austin and Dallas) to see where the content is identical vs. the same...

Does this include News 13 and Bay News 9? Because those name still have a lot of cache in Florida.

I watched SPN1 here in DFW and in the evenings they talk about Austin San Antonio and even Corpus Christi. But the weather segments are specifically for the DFW and North Texas Region.

I think the model is pretty much statewide news, then a local weather insert. I know in New York, SN1 seems to be “vertically aligned” in the upstate: Buffalo, then Corning-Elmira/Rochester, Binghamton/Syracuse/Watertown, and Albany/Hudson River Valley...

 

I’ll try to login tonight to “watch” Austin on the computer, and likewise DFW on the TV...
