RCN subscribers will be able to see LexMedia’s public, educational and government programming in high definition on channel 613. The channel is currently showing some programming in high definition, and a full slate of high definition program will begin in September.
“Obviously, we are thrilled to be able to provide our viewers with high definition programming,” said David Ilsley, LexMedia’s board chairman, in a joint press release with RCN. “We applaud RCN’s commitment to providing its customers with the highest caliber of new HD options and content.”
Jeff Carlson, a vice president and general manager for RCN Boston said in the release that “the decision to launch an HD channel for public access in Lexington was an easy one because of LexMedia’s award winning operation and its dedication to delivering the highest quality programming to its viewers.”
