The sister channel for our News 13 is expected to go live as early as Tuesday along with a host of other new channels on the cable network.
But … if you just can’t wait to see what the Tampa folks watch for local cable news, you apparently can get a sneak peek early.
According to a post our TV News Talk Message Board area, you can “trick” your cable box to allow you to see Bay News 9 now.
Here are the instructions: Hold down the OK/select button until a small icon flashes on the cable box (takes 10-15 secs). When it does that, press the right arrow next to the ok/select button and type in 1209 — the Orlando channel for Bay News 9.
