Charter has `i' on a Milestone

Charter Communications Inc.'s interactive, text-based 'i-channels' have been
deployed to more than 500,000 digital set-top subscribers, the MSO said

After launching the Digeo Inc. interactive service late last year in
Glendale, Calif., Charter has added more than 15 markets nationwide.

The MSO plans to have the i-channels before 1.5 million subscribers by year's
end. Recent launches in Turlock and Riverbank, Calif., pushed Charter pass the
half-million mark.

The i-channels feature on-demand national and localized news, weather,
sports, entertainment, shopping and financial information.
