[ARCHIVED] Looking for JCC's High-Definition Channels on Cox?

James City County’s PEG channels are moving! Effective April 26, our HD channels will move from Channels 1046-1048 to Channels 86-88 on Cox’s channel lineup.

Where are the local channels moving to?
James City County’s HD stations will move to the following numbers on Cox’s channel lineup:

  • The Community Channel will move from 1046 to 86
  • WJCC TV will move from 1047 to 87
  • JCC TV will move from 1048 to 88

JCC TV’s 24/7 live stream remains available online at jamescitycountyva.gov/220

When will this move occur?
Cox has already begun transmitting our feeds on channels 86-88. To avoid any future viewing disruptions, we recommend using these new channels immediately. Channels 1046-1048 will remain on air until April 26, 2022. After this time, messages will be placed on the channels directing viewers to the new channel locations. 

Why is this change happening?
Cox is getting rid of its four-digit channel series and eliminating duplicate HD channels on their lineup. For example, HD content previously viewed on channels 1013 or 1143 will now be available channels 13 or 143.

Only James City County and a few other Hampton Roads localities transmit their PEG channels in HD. (NOTE: This change will not affect those in the City of Williamsburg) 

Cox hopes to create more space for future upgrades and service offerings.

What about the standard definition (SD) channels?
James City County’s SD feeds will remain on channels 46, 47 and 48. However, the HD channels are still available to Cox customers using standard definition TVs. For the best picture quality, we recommend viewing channels 86, 87 and 88 regardless of TV type.

Where can I learn more?
