Sentence: " CNN doesn't come on cable"

My question: Is it correct to use preposition "on" here? Or, other preposition should come there? Can this sentence be rejig like this "our cable operator doesn't show CNN? Will it produce the same meaning as that of first sentence?

Thanks and regards

Rejigged.

The first sentence just says that CNN does not come on cable, without specifying that you are referring to your particular cable operator.
