Comcast Adds HD Channels In Washington


Comcast said its Washington State cable systems, with 1.9 million customers, will be adding Animal Planet HD, Discovery Channel HD, TLC HD, HGTV HD, Food Network HD and Sci Fi HD on March 4.

The cable firm said the additions will elevate its local HD offerings to 31 channels and said it has increased its HD volume to more than 250 ‘choices,’ including on-demand movies. 

Comcast set a goal in January of offering 1,000 HD choices to customers. Comcast also touts the availability of HD presentations of Seattle Mariners baseball games and Seattle Sonics basketball games.
