Now that it has completed its recent San Francisco Bay Area upgrade of customers from analog to digital, Comcast is launching three new diverse channels in the Bay Area.

The new networks are The Africa Channel, art and culture network Ovation TV and English-language Latino network Sí TV. All three channels will be available on the Digital Classic service level to both residential homes and businesses.

The channel additions are made possible by a digital migration called “The World of More” that Comcast began in 2009 and has just completed in the Bay Area. Under the initiative, Comcast offered digital upgrades to Standard Cable customers to migrate from analog to digital, and converted channels 31 and above to a digitally delivered format.

Comcast’s digital upgrade reclaimed analog bandwidth to allow the company to provide more products and services to customers, such as faster Internet speeds, more channels and more on demand content.
