Detroit News:

Comcast customers with basic service now will be able to get access to most high-definition channels, with monthly rental of a high-definition box. On Monday, Michigan's largest cable company announced it is allowing basic cable subscribers to get its high-definition service. In the past, HD service only was available to customers with more-extensive and expensive preferred cable service. The difference between the basic cable and preferred plans is about $14 a month. The new service comes amid increasing competition between cable and satellite companies for high-definition customers, whose numbers are growing as prices come down for HD televisions. Cable and satellite companies are also facing competition from phone companies offering television services. AT&T, for example, launched its U-verse service in some Metro Detroit communities in May, and offers a year of high-definition service for free with all but one of its television plans... Comcast puts HD on basic access (Tue, 11/20)
