Charter customers in North Texas have a killer opportunity to catch up on SHOWTIME® favorites such as Dexter®
Network upgrade enables improved On Demand experience
FORT WORTH, Texas, June 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Everyone’s favorite serial killer, Dexter, is back for his eighth and final season on SHOWTIME – and Charter’s SHOWTIME subscribers in Fort Worth and surrounding communities now have the means, motive and opportunity to catch up on the entire series thanks to a North Texas network upgrade that is to die for.
The three-month, $40 million project has more than doubled Charter’s high definition (HD) channel lineup for Fort Worth-area customers and boosted its Video On Demand (VOD) offering to more than 12,000 VOD options – including enhanced SHOWTIME ON DEMAND® access.
When it comes to providing five times more SHOWTIME titles to North Texas customers, Charter is guilty as charged. Plus, SHOWTIME subscribers can witness more arresting entertainment with all-seasons access to the award-winning SHOWTIME Original Series Homeland, House of Lies, Californication, Nurse Jackie and more – all delivered in HD via Charter’s new all-digital network.
It would be a crime for Charter customers to miss this chance to see all previous episodes of Dexter before the show’s June 30 season premiere. A repeat offender with critical acclaim, Dexter was the recipient of the prestigious Peabody Award, as well as 25 Emmy® and 10 Golden Globe® Award nominations.
Charter and SHOWTIME – there ought to be a law against this much entertainment.
