Comcast's Branford, CT. channel additions

comcast press release:

Company Providing Customers with Access to Over 100 HD Channels and Grouping
All HD Channel Offerings in 4-Digit Channel Position
BRANFORD, CT – (November 30, 2011) – Comcast today announced the addition of 46 new channels and the availability of 2 new sports Pay-Per-View packages in the communities of Branford, East Haven, Guilford, Madison, North Branford, North Haven and Wallingford. This expansion includes 39 high definitions (HD) and seven standard definition networks. This massive launch of programming was made possible by the company’s ongoing digital network enhancement. With today’s launches, customers in these communities now have access to over 100 HD networks, along with more than 6,000 HD On Demand choices a month. Additionally, all of Comcast’s HD channel offerings, including existing HD channels, are now located in a 4-digit channel position to group all HD programming in the same channel range and provide customers with a better viewing experience.
As part of its digital network enhancement in the Branford area, the company is digitizing all of its analog channels in three separate phases. The company already digitized a majority of its analog lineup in two waves on September 20 and October 18, moving a total of 37 channels from the analog to digital lineup and expects to complete the digitization of its analog lineup on November 29. These moves are clearing the way for additional HD programming, more On Demand choices, faster Internet speeds and other interactive digital services. The latest 46 new channels, which come on the heels of 20 new channels that launched in early October, represent the most recent benefits to local customers in these communities.
Branford area customers also have access to a newly-launched Hispanic programming package, called MultiLatino, for $14.95 per month. MultiLatino includes popular channels such as Galavision, ESPN Deportes and Discovery Familia.
“After helping so many customers get their digital equipment in recent weeks, we’re excited to deliver on our promise of offering the ultimate viewing experience,” said Mary McLaughlin, Senior Vice President for Comcast’s Western New England Region, which includes Connecticut. “We already offer customers more HD programming than any other provider – more than 6,000 HD choices a month – and we are thrilled to now also provide our Branford area customers with over 100 HD channels.”
