Baseball Fans and News Junkies Cheer as Comcast Launches TBS and CNN in High- Definition Format

Comcast,
the provider of cable, entertainment and communications products and services, announced
the simultaneous launches of TBS and CNN in High-Definition (HD), adding two
more of the most popular cable channels to its already extensive HD lineup in
Massachusetts and most of

New Hampshire.

The launch
of TBS in HD will deliver Major League Baseball fans a front row seat to all 27
potential games of the American and National League Division Series and
National League Championship Series. The roll out of CNN HD will allow news and
political junkies to watch the presidential primary season heat up in crystal
clear HD.

TBS in HD
offers a diverse mix of high-quality sports and variety programming, with a
focus on comedy. In addition to Major League Baseball’s Division Series and
National League Championship Series coverage, viewers can watch the network’s
hit original series in HD, such as My Boys, Tyler Perry’s House of Payne, 10
Items or Less and The Bill Engvall Show, along with viewer favorites like The
Office, Everybody Loves Raymond, Family Guy, Friends, Sex and the City, King of
Queens and Seinfeld.

CNN in HD
is one of the world’s most respected and trusted sources for news and
information. Viewers will now be able to catch all of the latest news headlines
and hit programs in HD, including Lou Dobbs Tonight, The Situation Room, Larry
King Live and Anderson Cooper 360.

“We
are committed to providing the best HD programming on the market,” said
Randy Waddell, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Comcast’s
NorthCentral Division. “The addition of TBS HD and CNN HD, combined with
our already extensive HD lineup and more than 150 hours of HD ON DEMAND
content, delivers our customers with the ultimate viewing experience. And as
other networks begin to offer their content in HD, we look forward to expanding
our already robust offerings to provide unparalleled entertainment for our
customers.”

“In
providing more HD networks, our affiliates are able to provide a more robust
choice in programming that gives an enhanced viewing experience for their
customers,” said Coleman Breland, Executive Vice President of Sales and
Marketing for Turner Network Sales.
