FORT WORTH, Texas, June 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Charter has successfully completed a four-month, all-digital upgrade of its North Texas network for customers in Fort Worth and 40 surrounding communities.

From Cleburne to Keller and Weatherford to the Park Cities, Charter customers are now enjoying 141 high definition (HD) channels – more than double their previous HD lineup – as part of the largest HD launch in Charter's history.

ABC Family, BET, Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, FOX News Channel, MSNBC, Travel Channel, CMT and The Longhorn Network are just a few of the more than 80 new HD channels now available in crystal-clear digital picture and sound.

Plus, Charter has increased its Video On Demand (VOD) offering to a total of more than 12,000 VOD options, including 2,500 HD titles and new Spanish-language selections.

"More than 500 Charter employees – network engineers to customer care representatives – have come together over the past four months to make this all-digital effort a resounding success for our customers," said John Owen, Charter's regional vice president in Fort Worth. "By removing analog signals from our network, we gained the bandwidth and ability to bring so much more value to our customers. With a digital set-top box on every television, our customers now have a host of new and exciting digital entertainment options available at the touch of a button."

In North Texas, the all-digital upgrade is just one part of more than $40 million in improvements being made to Charter's network. In addition, the company is replacing hundreds of miles of aging cable and making other core infrastructure improvements that will continue into 2014.

Customers in the Fort Worth area still have time to take advantage of special offers to receive set-top boxes at no cost. Visit www.charter.com/digitalnow or call 1-888-GET-CHARTER (1-888-438-2427) for more information.
