Connecticut – In the continuing evolution of Charter TV, Charter is launching WASA-TV (EstrellaTV) on its Digital Basic level of service, channel 94. EstrellaTV will be available beginning February 19.
WASA-EstrellaTV is an affiliate of the Spanish-language network EstrellaTV, which features Latin American programming, including musical-variety shows, comedy scripted dramas, talk and game shows, as well as daily national newscasts and news magazine shows.
“We want our customers to have the best television experience possible,” said Gregory A. Garabedian, Charter’s Vice President and General Manager for New England. “We’re committed to providing the widest variety of programs for our customers to enjoy, with more choice, greater reliability and additional value.”

A Charter digital receiver, a digital TV with a QAM tuner or a CableCard device is necessary for viewing WASA-Estrella TV. Approximately 80% of Charter customers already subscribe to Charter digital service, most with a digital receiver on more than one TV, in order to view digital programming and enjoy the other features enabled by digital technology.
