Charter plans 200 HD channels in Tennessee & Louisiana

CHARTER COMMUNICATIONS, INC. LOGOCharter Communications is upgrading its technology in Tennessee and Louisiana to all digital service, which will bring 200 HD channels to those markets by the end of 2014. We don’t have an exact list of high-definition channels, so Charter may be counting some On Demand HD channels within that number. But regardless, the upgrades are substantial. Charter says they have invested over $2 billion to their fiber-rich network, which will also double residential internet speeds from 30 Mbps to 60 Mbps at no additional cost.

“By removing outdated analog signals, we regain bandwidth in our network enabling us to provide more HD channels and open the door to faster Internet speeds and future innovation,”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

The all-digital 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.

Charter has already completed all-digital upgrades in markets that include parts of Michigan, Missouri, Texas, California, Wisconsin, South Carolina and Massachusetts.
