Charter customers in SoCal get more HD channels, increased internet speeds
Charter has been rolling out all-digital upgrades nationwide, and with the removal of old analog systems comes the available bandwidth to offer more HD channels. In Southern California, customers can now get approximately 200 high definition channels, as well as over 2,000 On Demand options in HD (10,000 including SD), to choose from.
The new all-digital service upgrade (called Charter Spectrum) also boosts internet speeds, giving customers a jump from 30 Mbps to 60 Mbps with the company’s entry level internet service. The speed increase is offered at no additional cost.
Charter also offers the free Charter TV app for Android and iOS devices that gives customers access to watch over 100 live channels on mobile devices while at home, and approximately 40 channels while away from home.
The company began its all-digital upgrade in Glendale, Burbank and Long Beach markets in August, 2013, and concluded the upgrades for Southern California this month.
Charter has already completed upgrades in markets that include parts of Michigan, Missouri, Texas, California, Wisconsin, South Carolina and Massachusetts. The upgrade for customers in Clarksville, Tennessee is scheduled for August 26, 2014.
Customers will need to acquire Charter-issued digital set-top boxes in order to receive the upgrade.
