BETHPAGE, N.Y. -- Cablevision Systems Corp. (NYSE: CVC - News) today announced the addition of 15 new high-definition channels to its iO TV HD line-up, which now features 60 channels of diverse and popular HD programming -- all available to iO TV customers without the extra equipment or programming fees Cablevision's competitors charge for HD. The HD additions include many major cable networks, some of the most popular channels on television.

The new additions are launching across Cablevision's service area over a five-day period that begins today and ends on Friday. More than 1.1 million iO TV customers today have at least one high-definition television and HD-enabled set-top box, an HD customer base that has grown by more than 50 percent in the last year, as Cablevision's high-definition programming line-up has expanded from 23 channels a year ago to 60 this week.

"We have continued to build additional value into our Emmy Award-winning iO TV digital cable service, through the addition of more free on demand programming, unique and valuable interactive services like News 12 Interactive, and more free HD," said John Trierweiler, Cablevision's senior vice president of product management. "The ongoing expansion of the HD programming available to our iO TV customers represents our commitment to ensuring that Optimum offers the very best cable television, high-speed Internet and voice products in our market, and consumers have recognized this superiority by continuing to choose our services over those of our competitors."
