DVR ALERT: Fox Network Changes, Sept. 2-4


Fox Networks have been busy of late, and they’re not finished quite yet.

Changes are summarized in the image above (click to enlarge) and copy below.  Check local listings for channel numbers.  We also recommend you check your DVR settings to make sure the affected shows record on the right day, time, and channel.

Fox’s planned changes could impact series (a.k.a., season pass) recordings, plus other recording options available on your Suddenlink DVR or Suddenlink TiVo device.  Also, depending on when your channel guide updates, you may need to wait until the day before or day of the noted show changes to update your DVR settings.
