* Comcast signed a distribution deal for ESPN HD in July. The MSO will offer ESPN HD in current HD service markets and as additional HD markets are launched.
¹ Insight's HD Pak includes programming from ESPN, Discovery, HD Net and HD Net Movies.
² Insight currently offers Bravo HD in one market (Peoria), but expects to launch it in several markets in Q3, including Champaign, Columbus, Evansville, Kokomo, Lexington, Louisville and Springfield.
³ Complementing boxes such as S-A's Explorer 3100 HD, TWC is also deploying Pioneer Electronics' Voyager 3510 HD set-top in some divisions, including San Diego, Los Angeles, Cincinnati and Columbus. TWC is also conducting field trials of the Pace Micro Technology DC-550 in select markets.
The National Cable and Telecommunications Association said 60 million TV homes in the U.S. can get HDTV programming from their local cable provider. If your system offers HD, and it's not listed here, please e-mail your information to jbaumgartner@reedbusiness.com for inclusion in our next update. Source: CED, company reports.
