Bright House Networks added five new channels, including four in HD, and 10 more Start Over channels earlier this week in its Central Florida Division.

Nat Geo Wild HD, Fox Soccer Plus HD, Fox Soccer Channel HD and WVEN Univision HD increased the Central Florida Division’s roster of HD offerings to 117 when they were added to the channel lineup on Tuesday. Bright House also added digital channel Fox Soccer Plus.

“With these latest programmers, a total of 13 HD channels have been added by Bright House Networks in 2010, and there will be many more to come this year as the company continues to offer HD channels customers say they want to see,” said Chris Fenger, president of Bright House Networks’ Central Florida Division.

Earlier in the month, the Central Florida Division added 10 new channels to its Start Over service, including: CNN, Speed, Discovery, Animal Planet, Bravo, Travel Channel, Food Network, truTV, Oxygen and National Geographic.

Time Warner Cable, leveraging its former Mystro technology, originally developed Start Over.
