You can still expect the same great news, sports, and entertainment from FOX61, but if you are a Comcast/Xfinity customer, you have a new easy-to-remember channel.

Channel change will occur in these towns on these dates:

Thursday, April 20:

Bloomfield, Canaan, East Hartford, Hartford, Norfolk, North Canaan, Salisbury, Sharon, Simsbury, West Hartford, Windsor.

Tuesday and Wednesday April 25/26:

Andover, Avon, Berlin, Bolton, Branford, Bristol, Burlington, Canton, East Haven, Ellington, Farmington, Guilford, Hebron, Madison, Marlborough, New Britain, North Branford, North Haven, Plainville, Tolland, Vernon, Wallingford.

Comcast said they are making the change to group channels into “neighborhoods” that are “designed to make browsing easier and to help you find more of the content you want to watch.”

DVR recordings, favorites, and parental controls won’t be affected for X1 customers, said Michael Parker, Senior Vice President of West New England Region. You can learn more about these changes here.
