Charter tomorrow will move 11 Viacom-owned channels to its most expensive tier, but the cable operator will try to make amends next month by moving The Travel Channel to its least expensive plan.
The Travel Channel, which is now in the DigiTier 1 Silver package, will move to Charter’s Select plan on February 19, the cable operator has announced.
The Select package, which includes roughly 125 channels, costs $65 a month for existing subscribers while the Silver plan, which offers 175 channels, runs $85 a month.
The switch to Select should help boost The Travel Channel’s viewership. Charter, the nation’s second largest cable operator, has more than 16 million video subscribers and its Select plan has the most viewers due to its lower price.
The Travel Channel, which is now owned by Scripps Networks (but a sale to Discovery is pending), airs documentaries and reality shows on travel and leisure activities.
