Channel 19 is Going Digital

As part of the upgrades to television services, all public access channels in the area, like Goleta TV Channel 19, will become digital access channels.

What does this mean for me? You will still be able to watch Goleta TV on Channel 19 and it will be solely dedicated to the City’s programming. In addition, cable subscribers will be able to access City programming in the “Free Zone” which is COX’s video on-demand service.

Do I need new equipment? You will only need new equipment if you do not have a digital box or clear QAM tuner TV. You can obtain these, at no cost, from COX.

Where can I watch KTLA? Cox is still in negotiations with KTLA. Look for future notices from COX on this issue.

For assistance, contact Sarah Clark,Public Affairs Manager, COX, at 681-3606 or She will be able to answer any questions you may have and provide you with a digital box or clear QAM tuner if you don’t have one.
