Comcast stepping out to provide Greencastle service

Thursday, January 3, 2008

Greencastle customers of cable television provider Insight Communications are seeing a change as Comcast Corp. takes over as the local service provider.

No changes in local pricing, programming or channels are planned for now, according to Mark Apple, regional vice president of communications and public affairs at Comcast Cable in Indianapolis.

However, Greencastle residents will begin receiving bills with the Comcast logo, as well as seeing the logo on vans and employee uniforms.

Our number one priority will be adding high definition channels and offering HD on demand, Apple said.

Comcast will continue to offer the bundled Triple Play of television, internet and phone service added in recent years by Insight. That Triple Play will also be offered to area businesses, Apple said, such as physician offices who want to offer television in the lobby for their customers, but also have high-speed internet with their phone system.

Comcast already held a 50 percent interested in the Insight Midwest partnership, which covered Indiana customers in Bloomington, Anderson, Lafayette and Kokomo. Greencastle was part of Insight's Bloomington territory.

Comcast paid the partnership about $1.3 billion at closing for its share of the partnership's debt.
