The article focuses on an analog-reclamation project completed by Time Warner Cable in its Staten Island, New York, system that freed up enough bandwidth for 100 high-definition channels. The disclosure of the project was included in court documents the cable operator filed as part of its false-advertising lawsuit against DirecTV. Time Warner Cable was trying to show it was able to match DirecTV's capacity claims by pointing to the Staten Island project.
