Cable TV Channel Lineup in San Mateo

Here's the cable TV channel lineup for the City of San Mateo. There might be errors or omissions in this list, so you should contact TCI Cable TV for their "official" lineup.


The cable tv channel lineup will be changing here in San Mateo on September 9th. So, just after we've all learned the numbers of our favorite stations, they have to change them... Seems that they do this every year just to make sure it gives all of us a hard time... We've got the older lineup here as well as the new lineup.
