TV Week’ adjusts channel listings based on requests

June 6, 2009


TV Week, a publication listing many of the programs and channels available on Sunflower Broadband, no longer includes the Sci Fi channel and other listings that remain available through an on-screen programming guide.

Listings for Sci Fi (channel 55), Spike (57) and MTV (65) recently were dropped from the printed publication to make room for three others that had been requested by Sunflower subscribers: MSNBC (channel 41), Hallmark (84) and Retirement Living (93).

“TV Week” is distributed Saturdays in the Lawrence Journal-World. The publication’s grids have room for listings covering 68 of Sunflower Broadband’s more than 300 available channels.

The three listings dropped from TV Week are for digital channels, said Andrea Pritchard, programming manager for Sunflower Broadband.

That means subscribers can access information for three days to a week in advance by pressing the “guide” button on their remote control, then scrolling to the appropriate channels, dates and times.

Sunflower Broadband plans to survey its subscribers this summer, using a form in TV Week, to see which listings they would prefer to see included in the printed publication, Pritchard said.

Anyone with questions or comments, Pritchard said, may contact Sunflower Broadband at 841-2100, or by e-mail at

What I want to see is the native QAM channel listings for those of us who prefer to not burn 35W running Sunflower's cable box.

Not a big fan of the monopoly Sunflower is running in lawrence. Its kinda BS that if I want to watch comedy central or spike in my room or office that I have to pay an extra $5-$10 a month. Come on.
