comScore said it has expanded its relationship with Charter Communications, increasing the number of set-top boxes it gets viewer information from to 26 million, including those of Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks.

Speaking on an update call with investors Wednesday morning, comScore president Bill Livek said comScore and Charter have been partners for 10 years and will begin getting information for its ratings services from the additional homes picked up with Charter's TWC and Bright House acquisitions.

Livek said the number of TVs comScore will measure will increase 44% to 75 million.
