Charter TV expanding HD channels in Missouri & Southern Illinois markets

CHARTER COMMUNICATIONS, INC. LOGOCharter Communications is upgrading their service in Missouri and Southern Illinois markets to bring the HD channel count to approximately 200, after customers upgrade to the provider’s all-digital system. Along with the addition of more High Definition channels, Charter will also be providing better picture quality and faster Internet speeds, as well as over 12,000 Video-On-Demand offerings (with 3,000 in HD). Customers will be notified of the steps they’ll need to take to acquire a Charter-issued digital set-top box (at no cost to subscribers), as the all-digital rollout starts this month with the goal of completion by mid 2014. Charter says they’ve invested over $2 billion in their “fiber-rich” network as part of a nationwide upgrade.

“By removing outdated analog signals, we regain bandwidth in our network enabling us to provide more HD channels and open the door to faster Internet speeds and future innovation,” said Charter President and CEO Tom Rutledge.

There are some exceptions you should know about however, in regards to the expansion of Charter’s HD channel lineup. Customers in Louisiana, MO, Perryville, MO and Ste. Genevieve, MO won’t be getting the upgrades at this time.
