Qwest Adds HD Channels in Phoenix


Qwest Communications International is offering a slate of HD channels to its Qwest Choice TV video subscribers in Phoenix.

The offering encompasses FSN Arizona; film and sporting-event channel Universal HD; hybrid sports channel Golf/Versus HD; Arizona State University channel ASUtv; and Spanish language channel KPHE-TV.

“This expansion of Qwest Choice TV programming gives customers access to an even broader programming lineup -- both local and high-definition,” said Pat Quinn, state president for Qwest in Arizona. “Offering even more local and high-definition television programming is another example of Qwest's commitment to providing customers with everything they need to stay connected to the people and things important to them at a great value.”

All Phoenix Suns National Basketball Association games for the 2007-08 season will be telecast in HD, making the team the first in the NBA and first in Arizona to broadcast an entire season in HD.
