Charter Communications  now offers up to 44 HD channels in its Louisiana territory, which is more than double the number of HD channels available in recent weeks.
In 2008 and beyond, Charter plans to increase HD programming in all of its HD markets with the help of bandwidth-saving technologies such as switched digital video (SDV). Charter expects to provide more than 100 HD programming options, including HD VOD, in nearly all of its markets by the end of the year.
Charter customers will be able to choose from these 100 HD options, which will include movies, series, educational shows and more.
"Adding these high-definition channels and high-definition on-demand content to our video offerings, when combined with our high-speed Internet and telephone services, further enhances the value of the Charter Bundle for our customers," said Cathy Fogler, VP and GM of video for Charter.
