Charter shifts channels to add HD stations in Fond du Lac, WI

Darren Murph

Charter's not going all-digital just yet in the Fond du Lac, Wisconsin region, but it is making some changes to make room for additional high-def material. Thanks to a recent realignment, a few analog channels have been moved to the digital tier, which will not only mean more expense for those currently operating sans a digital STB, but freed bandwidth that can be used for new high-definition channels. According to Lisa Washa, Charter's vice president and general manager, the "number one request it gets from customers is for more HD channels," though judging by CTO Marwan Fawaz's comments, you'd think the carrier just wasn't listening. At any rate, you Fond du Lac customers can look forward to an undisclosed amount of new HD options "later this month."
