Cox No Longer Airing ABC6 News on Rhode Island News Channel 5
A few programming notes to tell you about tonight. ABC6 News will no longer be seen on Cox Cable Newschannel 5. Newschannel 5 formerly known as the Rhode Island News Channel began broadcasting on November 30, 1998 as a partnership between ABC6 and Cox Communications. We thank our viewers for their continued support over the past 13 years. Unfortunately, Cox Communications made the decision not to move forward with ABC6 programming on Channel 5.
We are pleased to offer viewers an exciting new network on our digital channel 6.2 “Live Well Providence”. The Live Well Network, programmed by the ABC television network, offers a wide range of entertainment-based programs, including home decorating, fashion, beauty, food, health, outdoor adventures and more. This channel provides viewers alternative programming, and can be seen over the air in southern New England. Over the next 30 days the Live Well Network Providence will be available on your local cable or satellite provider.
