Mediacom Communications made some changes to its channel lineup, adding motorsports channel MAVTV to its systems while moving Fox Business Network and Viceland to its Family TV tier, its most widely-viewed subscription level.
The news comes after Mediacom said it would add international news channel i24 News to its lineup.
“We’re excited about the new channels and an expanded selection in our Family TV lineup,” said Mediacom’s senior vice president of field operations Ed Pardini in a statement. “Delivering new channels is part of our strategy to enhance our video product and deliver more value to customers.”
Fox Business and Viceland have been available to Mediacom customers whose subscriptions included optional channel tiers. Now the channels are offered in Family TV and HD Family TV to reach nearly all Mediacom viewers.
MAVTV Motorsports Network joins Mediacom’s Sports & Information Pak. MAVTV offers exclusive coverage of the AMA Pro Motocross Series, the ARCA Racing Series and the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals, along with a variety of grassroots racing which includes drag boats, sprint cars, late model dirt, off-road, drifting, ice racing, pro pulling and much more. MAVTV also includes automotive reality and custom build shows.
International news network i24 News is available in the Family TV lineup in most Mediacom service areas. In some locations it is offered in the Sports & Information Pak. The 24-hour news and current affairs network is based in Tel Aviv, Israel, with a studio in New York City.
Mediacom also added Emmy Award-winning children’s networks, Kabillion and Kabillion Girls Rule!, as free video-on-demand channels that families can access at any time. Programs are geared to children ages 6 to 12, with favorite programs that include My Little Pony, Sonic X and original titles such as Dream Defenders.
The arrival of new channels and location updates occur with no changes in current subscription fees. Channel locations update automatically for customers who use cable set-top boxes or digital adapters.
