Mediacom adding international channels

Mediacom Communications said Monday that most of its customers will get the ability to choose from as many as eight international channels that can be added to an individual cable subscription to provide news and entertainment from European and Asian countries.

The international channels will be available by the end of August and will include RAI International (Italian), RTL (German), Russian TV Network (Russian), Channel One (Russian), TV 5 Monde (French), The Filipino Channel (Filipino), TVK1 (Korean) and Saigon Broadcasting (Vietnamese).

Mediacom officials said they chose to offer the selection of international channels because of the growing diversity within communities where the company offers television and broadband services.

 “We selected a range of channels to reflect and embrace the diversity in communities with Mediacom customers and employees,” said Mediacom Senior Vice President Ed Pardini. “For many years, we’ve offered a tier of Spanish-language channels, Canales Latinos, and now we’ve added more choices to watch sports, news and family entertainment that originates with leading television stations from around the world.”

The international channels are offered on an a la carte basis at $9.99 a channel each month and are available to customers with Local Plus TV or Family Cable TV subscriptions.
