Comcast expands HD, video-on-demand in Springs
Comcast cable TV company has launched new service that will allow Colorado Springs customers to view 70 new high-definition networks with more than 100 HD channels, 50 foreign-language channels, 20,000 video-on-demand choices and faster Internet speeds.
A majority of the Colorado Springs cable TV market is served by Comcast.
Some networks and channels under the new service, called XFINITY, have already been added to the Colorado Springs market, which is one of the first communities along the Front Range to receive the service. Other cities in the state will be added in the coming weeks.
Spokeswoman Cindy Parsons offered what might be welcome news for electronics retailers. She said many people have been holding off on buying a high-definition TV until more cable channels were added.
“If you haven’t gone HD yet, now might be the time,” she said.
Customers can call 1-877-634-4434 or visit www.comcast.com/digitalnow to request their free digital equipment and learn more about the new upgrade.
