Adelphia Communications has purchased additional digital headends from Scientific- Atlanta to further support its goal for deploying digital set-tops to its more than 5.6 million subscribers. When complete, the deployment is expected to pass an additional 2.3 million homes by 1Q 2001.
The installations will cover the eastern half of the U.S. from Florida to Maine and as far west as Ohio. The new digital headends, which serve as the control center of a cable TV system, will deliver enhanced video quality, an expanded channel lineup and an on-screen program guide to Adelphia's subscribers via Scientific-Atlanta Explorer set-tops.
