RCN reclaims analog channels, makes way for more HD

RCN Corporation announced it will go all digital in New York City next month, making way for all-digital programming. The cable TV provider says the switch will improve picture quality and dramatically increase the number standard and high definition (HD) channels it can offer customers.

“By going all-digital, we can provide the consumers of the great Empire City a superior alternative to the incumbent cable and phone products. We believe we are at the top of the class in going all digital,” said RCN CEO and President Peter Aquino.

The all-digital conversion will allow up to 10 standard-definition or 3 high-definition channels per analog channel. At launch, RCN plans to have more than 75 HD channels in the area, with plans to reach 100 in the near future.

The conversion will begin in Queens and continue to other NYC areas over the next few months. The company also said it is increasing its VOD (Video On Demand) offerings.
