Spectrum OC16 is a Hawaiian TV channel owned by Charter Communications (which acquired Oceanic Time Warner Cable in 2016), based in Honolulu, Hawaii and broadcasts to the state of Hawaii on Oceanic channel 12/digital 1012 for general interests, on channel 16/digital 1016 (also known as Spectrum Sports Hawaii) for sports programming, and on channel 255 for pay-per-view events, particularly University of Hawaii football.[1]


The channel, which was first launched as a cable access channel in 1976, offers a local alternative to the traditional produced television offerings featuring two channels, one operating on channel 12 that broadcasts in-house shows geared towards Hawaiians, while a second channel on channel 16 is devoted to local sports, including athletic events from the University of Hawaii. Both channels are also offered in HD and can be viewed on its in-demand channels on Spectrum's digital services.

In addition, Spectrum also offers a pay-per-view channel on channel 255 for select University of Hawaii football games.[2]
