Comcast digital subscribers will receive Bounce Charleston on Channel 213.

Home Telecom will launch Bounce Charleston on channel 113 on Oct. 4.

Cable viewers need to get a new channel lineup from their multiple system operator.

Direct Broadcast Satellite providors such as DirecTV and Dish Network will not carry Bounce Charleston at this time.

Over-the air viewers need to re-scan their TV or converter box to get the new channel.

You don't have to wait to rescan. Re-scan now and you won't miss the first Bounce TV movie, which premieres Monday at noon!
