Good news for Orlando residents as Bright House Networks will add 15 HD channels to its digital-cable customers on Sept. 5. The news comes from the Orlando Sentinel who reported the cable company will reach a total of 64 high-definition channels, closer to their goal of 100 by year’s end.
Seven of the channels will be free of charge to customers with the digital tier who have an HD receiver and HDTV. The rest of the channels are offered in the premium and sports tiers.
The new free HD channels include: AMC HD, Biography HD, CBS College Sports HD, ESPN News HD, Fox News HD, Palladia (music programming) and WGN HD.
Premium movie channels additions include: Cinemax HD, Starz HD and The Movie Channel HD.
In the sports tier the following HD channels will be added: Big Ten Network HD, NBA TV HD, NHL Network HD, Tennis Channel HD and Yes Network HD.
Well Carlos, when you offer such poor service as Bright House Cable does… any minor improvement is newsworthy!
I know right? Since when is offering ESPN News, AMC and Fox News in HD newsworthy? Really, if I were Bright House I wouldn’t publicize this ‘advancement’ because it highlights how far behind they are. I’m afraid to ask how many other channels they don’t have!
Wow, great news. Brighthouse is finally catching up with the rest of the world and offering mainstream channels in HD (only a few for free, of course). Not a big fan of cable companies in general, but at least Verizon installed my Fios right and made sure it was working. See if Brighthouse ever sends someone back to your house after installation…the bottom line: these channels should have been available along time ago, and now you’ll still be lucky to have em work half the time, way customer service goes and all that
