What is the difference between basic, standard, and digital service?

Basic, standard, and digital are the three main tiers of video service offered by Bright House Networks.

The standard tier includes the basic tier, and the digital service includes all three tiers. You can view your channel lineup for a listing of the channels included in each tier.

  • Basic service generally includes your local network stations, government and educational access channels, and a few select national networks.
  • Standard service adds specialty stations in various genres. For example, ESPN, Discovery, Nickelodeon, and MTV are generally part of the standard tier.
  • Digital service adds channels that cover a wide range of programming types. ESPN News, The Science Channel, Nick Jr., and BBC America are generally part of the digital service tier.

    Digital service also provides access to a number of interactive options through the use of a converter, such as the on-screen guide and On Demand programming.
