BendBroadband Adds HD Black Rock


BendBroadband added high-definition CBS affiliate KVAL-HD of Eugene, Ore., to its HD lineup Thursday.

The central Oregon operator offers eight other HD channels: KATU (ABC), KOPB (Oregon Public Broadcasting), Discovery HD, ESPN HD, Showtime HD, HBO HD, HDNet and HDNet Movies.

"CBS has been recognized as an early leader in rolling out HDTV content, and I'm sure our customers will be delighted with the additional HD primetime and sports programming available on KVAL-HD," BendBroadband co-president Ray Spreier said in a prepared statement.

"For college-basketball fans, the timing couldn't be better with the NCAA Tournament just around the corner," he added.
