RCN is convert to all-digital in the Washington, DC, area for all its cable TV customers next month. The move is intended to improve picture quality, make the network easier to maintain, and dramatically increase the number of SD and HD channels RCN can offer. The company has already initiated Project Analog Crush in its Boston, Chicago, New York and Philadelphia markets. The conversion is designed to enable RCN to deliver up to 10 SD digital or three HD channels per analog channel, with better picture quality, and use some of the reclaimed spectrum to support growing high-speed data services demand. The new lineup will start with 75 HD channels and leapfrog the incumbent cable product. In addition, management is looking forward to expanding its International tier, VOD library, and preparing for high-speed data expansion through DOCSIS 3.0 in the future.
