RENO — Charter is adding 27 new high-definition (HD) channels for customers with HD service throughout Reno, Sparks and Washoe County on May 31.
In addition, Charter is launching KNRC-Estrella TV on basic (digital only) channel 304 on May 31. KNRC-Estrella TV is an affiliate of the Spanish-language network Estrella TV. Featuring Latin American talent, Estrella TV’s programming roster includes musical-variety, comedy, scripted drama, talk and game shows, as well as daily national newscasts and news magazine shows.
“We want our customers to have the best television experience on all their screens,” said Frank Antonovich, Charter’s vice president and general manager. “Today’s television experience extends far beyond the living room and onto a variety of connected devices. We’re committed to providing the highest quality video experience, more choice, greater reliability and additional value.”
A digital TV with a QAM tuner or a Charter digital set top receiver is necessary for viewing KNRC-Estrella TV, and an HDTV and Charter HD receiver are necessary to view programming in high-definition. Approximately 80 percent of Charter customers already subscribe to Charter digital service, most with a digital receiver on more than one TV, in order to view digital programming and receive the other features enabled by digital technology. Charter digital and HD set top receivers are available at local Charter sales and service locations.
Prior to the addition of new HD channels on May 31, customers will receive notice regarding the 27 new HD channels, and information about channel locations will be available at www.charter.com/futureTV.
