Charter makes hefty investment in DIVA
Investing further in a VOD experiment, Charter has invested $5 million in DIVA, a provider of digital video-on-demand service for cable television systems. DIVA provides hardware, software, back office and integration advice to cable companies.
The partnership between DIVA and Charter began in Charter's Gwinnet County, Ga. system, leading to a wide-scale deployment agreement announced in May 2000.
DIVA will rollout VOD in Charter systems, including Los Angeles, a Charter system serving 600,000 subs.
