Bright House Indiana Adds Dozen HD Channels


Bright House Networks in Indiana is bolstering its high-definition lineup by a dozen.
The operator, serving customers in the central part of the Hoosier state, has launched ION HD to its free HD tier at channel 703, and is adding 11 other multiplex networks to its premium HD tier at no additional cost: Cinemax MoreMAX HD (channel 229); Cinemax ActionMAX HD (230); Cinemax ThrillerMAX HD (231): Cinemax OuterMAX HD (232); Cinemax @MAX HD (233) Cinemax 5StarMAX HD (234); Cinemax WMAX HD (235); Showtime Too HD (250); Showtime Showcase HD (251); Showtime Extreme HD: (252); and Showtime HD ON Demand (238).
Aided by a major rollout last fall, the MSO already offers more than 100 HD channels in the area.
Moreover, Bright House is dropping the price of accessing HD movies through its HD Movies On Demand service (channel 798) to $4.99 for 24 hours for most titles.
"We are focused on providing the best, most popular HD programming and offering more HD content to our central Indiana digital customers," said Karen Broach, regional vice president of operations for Bright House, in a statement. "The addition of these new channels now provides our digital customers access to more than 100 HD channels and, coupled with our new digital TV service Start Over that allows viewers to restart, pause and rewind certain programs at any time, is another step Bright House Networks has taken to enhance our customers' TV viewing experiences."
