Knology drops 12 new HD channels into Montgomery, Ala., lineup
Knology continues to add new HD channels to its systems, with the latest being a dozen new HD offerings in its Montgomery, Ala., system.
The new HD channels in Montgomery include CNBC, MSNBC, Fox News, NFL, USA, Travel, Lifetime, Bravo and Oxygen, among others.
“We are excited to announce the addition of 12 new HD channels for our Montgomery customers,” said Royce Ard, vice president of sales and marketing for Knology. “These additions further show our dedication to providing our customers with quality service and viewing options.”
Knology is continuing to add HD channels to its systems while it waits for its $1.5 billion acquisition by Wide Open West to close.
In April, Knology rolled out 15 new HD channels into the lineups in Columbus, Ga., and Valley, Ala.
Ard has previously said that the new HD channels were the result of ongoing bandwidth optimization efforts by Knology, and not due to an analog-to-digital conversion project.
Knology has said in the past that it plans on deploying digital terminal adapters (DTAs) in order to reclaim more bandwidth, but, to date, it has all-digital in just two systems: the former Sunflower system in Lawrence, Kan., that Knology purchased in 2010 and Auburn, Ala.
Knology, headquartered in West Point, Ga., largely wrapped up its DOCSIS 3.0 rollouts near the end of last year.
