The article reports on the offering of digital simulcast service by cable operators. Adelphia Communications Corp. is the latest major MSO readying to take the plunge, with plans to bring about 10 of its 26 markets up. The goal is to digitize as many markets as possible. Smaller cable operators are also diving into simulcast. Take the always-creative Alaskan cabler GCI, which has essentially leapfrogged over simulcast directly to all-digital in parts of its sprawling northern territory. Kansas cable operator Sunflower Broadband has also made the leap, roiling out its simulcast service in May to customers in Lawrence and the surrounding area, banking on the Motorola DCT-700 box.
