Comcast steps up digital programming drive in San Francisco

Comcast continues to make progress with its 'Project Cavalry' analog-to-digital conversion project in the San Francisco Bay area. The move will enable it to offer 99 HDTV channels. Included in this digital lineup are 76 new TV networks with 46 HD and 13 Spanish language channels in segments of the San Francisco Bay area.

The cable MSO kicked off its phased analog-to-digital conversion process in San Francisco earlier this year. While Comcast employees call the conversion Project Calvary, customers know it under "The World of More" name. This week, residential homes and businesses in San Jose and Los Gatos can now access the new programming. Comcast said it will expand the digital channel line up to additional cities throughout October and November.
