Knology bolsters HD lineup in Augusta
Knology has added 19 HD channels in Augusta, Ga., where it competes with Comcast for subscribers.
The HD additions in Augusta followed on the heels of HD channel upgrades in the Knoxville, Tenn.; Charleston, S.C.; and Huntsville, Ala., markets last month.
"We continuously strive to provide our customers with the advanced products and services they need to stay connected," said Tony Palermo, vice president of marketing for Knology. "The addition of 19 new HD channels will give our customers even more quality television viewing options."
High-definition channels being added to Knology of Augusta's lineup include Bravo, CNN, E!, ESPNU, Fox News, Golf Channel, MSNBC, NFL Channel, Oxygen, SyFy, The Travel Channel, USA and Versus, among others.
Knology has previously said that the HD upgrades were the result of cleared spectrum and "fine tuning" ahead of the company's plans to convert to all-digital. Knology will start deploying some digital terminal adapters (DTAs) this year before rolling them out more broadly next year.
Augusta is the location of Comcast’s market trial for its project Xcalibur.
