COLUMBUS, OH, – Time Warner Cable Digital Cable customers now receive 100 percent of their channels in a digital format, announced Time Warner Cable Mid-Ohio Division President Rhonda Fraas today.
Fraas said the company has completed its “digital simulcast” project, which brings Digital Cable customers crystal clear picture and sound on every channel, including those on the Standard Service lineup (channels 2-75) such as broadcast channels.
The project began this summer with a few simulcast channels launching each week. The enhancement is automatic and does not require new equipment or additional fees for Digital Cable customers. Customers will tune to the same channel as before, but now will receive programming on channels 2-75 in a digital format.
“Customers continue to have higher expectations for picture and audio quality,” said Fraas. “With an all-digital lineup, we’re delivering the best possible quality to them.”
Customers who do not have a set-top box will not be affected as all analog channels will continue to be available to them.
