Buoyed in part by customers scrambling to watch Sunday’s Super Bowl in all of
its high-definition glory, Comcast Cable said it has breached the 1 million mark on
deployed set-tops with high-definition capability.

Of that figure, 800,000 were deployed in 2004, the company said, but noted
that the company has seen a 143 percent increase in the number of customers
connecting HDTV sets to the operator’s hi-def service so far this month compared
to January 2004.

Comcast presently offers HD in 62 markets, equal to 93 percent of its service
footprint. Shelly Palmer
