CG993 is Cape Girardeau and Jackson’s former Channel 5 public access channel. In order to open bandwidth for additional high quality programming in digital format, Charter Communications as of March 16, 2010 relocated several area stations, including moving the City’s channel 5 to channel 993, creating a pubilc, educational and government “PEG” block. Changes were not only made by Charter Communications to public and government access programming in Cape Girardeau; similar changes were made in Sikeston, Farmington, and St. Louis, and in other parts of the state.
